The defending champions, the Kolkata Knight Riders, won the right to host the opening ceremony of the 2013 IPL opening ceremony, when they beat two-time IPL champions Chennai Super Kings in a close-fought final last year.
The opening ceremony, over the past six years of the IPL, has grown in size and stature to become one of the largest sports-related entertainment events in the world, boasting a combined audience of over 50 million people. And such numbers means the event ranks alongside the Super Bowl, in the US.
