The first match of IPL on 18 April 2008

The most awaited IPL tournament is going to launch after a few hours. The inaugural ceremony will be taken place on 18 April. The M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore is fully prepared to celebrate the inaugural tournament between Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Kolkata Knight Riders. The match will run from 18 April to 1 June. The final will be on June 1 in Mumbai.

At 20:00 (IST) the two former captains will come to fight in the floodlight of Bangalore. Sourav Ganguly the captain of Kolkata Knight Riders and Rahul Dravid the captain of Royal Challengers Bangalore will meet each other in the home ground of Royal Challengers Bangalore.

The former India captains will walk out for the toss in a stadium plunged in darkness. Spotlights will trail them as they make their way to the middle, then finally the floodlights will come on as the home team's franchise, the Royal Challengers, take on the Kolkata Knight Riders.

I have got a nice similarity between the two teams that is both the teams have occupied the second positions form the ascending and descending way. That means the Royal Challengers Bangalore is the second highest bided team and the Kolkata Knight is second lowest bided team.

Kolkata Knight Rides Franchise Shah Rukh Khan has offered 1000 tickets for the fans to join the inaugural ceremony in Bangalore. Now it a question that which team will own the first match bangle or Bangalore? There are many storng and experienced players in the both team such as Rickey Ponting, Chris Gayle, Brendon McCullum, David Hussey , Shoaib Akhtar on the other team Mark Boucher, Nathan Bracken, Dale Steyn are the strong hands.
