There was a decent number of crowd in the stands as well who joined in tapping their feet along the show.
Earlier, keeping in with the tradition, the captains of Guajrat Lions and Kolkata Knight Riders — Suresh Raina and Gautam Gambhir — came on stage to pose with the IPL trophy with the former presenting a memento to the latter. The team anthems were also played as the captains entered the stadium on carts.
Though there was Gujarati flair and fervour across the stadium, it did little to bring a smile on the captains’ faces though who seemed extremely focussed before their opening match later in the day.
There was ample amount of excitement in the stands though, as the fireworks went on with the beats to enthrall the audience.
