The twelfth edition of the Indian Premier League is about to start in less than a month and the hype is escalating on a Godly level.
To add fuel to the fire, the new promo has been launched and it surely does justice to all the madness that surrounds an entity that is potentially the most loved league in the country.March 5, 2019
In the new promo, a creative parallel has been drawn between the professional cricketers who represent the country on the international level and the young enthusiasts who keep the craze going on the streets.
The minute-and-a-half footage deals with the two sides trying to fight against each other over the desire to play the game of cricket they both love equally. Both try to crush the other side behind the wall and acquire as much of the playing space as the can.
There's a moment when the 'gully boys' are gaining advance over the Men in Blue, who are now dressed in the colourful jerseys of the cities they will be representing in the upcoming season and Thala aka Mahendra Singh Dhoni, makes an epic entry for his boys, driving a massive road-roller into the equation.
This may be a tribute to Mahi's ability to show up in the clutch and like a superhero, single-handedly finish the game in favour of his side.
MSD, however, also shows other characteristics of a superhero as he gets rid of the 'wall' that divided the young fans from the players, bringing the youngsters to his side.
When one of the aspirants comes forward to introduce himself, the captain of Team India and Royal Challengers Bangalore, Virat Kohli stops him in his way and says: “Name chhodh… Game dikha.”
This seems to be the narrative that is going surround this IPL season. With numerous new striplings making their way to all the glitz and glamour, it is their game that will help them make their name in the cricketing world.
Fans on Twitter are running out of ways to praising this new promo:
