The 13th edition of the ICC ODI World Cup will begin just two days later. A grand opening ceremony is held in every event before the start of the World Cup. But this time maybe an exception is going to happen.
This season will be held on October 5. Captain’s Day and opening ceremony of the World Cup is scheduled to be held on October 4.
However, the Indian media is giving bad news to the cricket lovers. They claim that due to technical reasons, the Indian Cricket Board- BCCI is not organizing any spectacular opening ceremony in this season.
However, neither ICC nor BCCI has confirmed the truth of the news so far. However, there is also news that such rumors are due to BCCI’s silent stance on organizing the event.
The latest news is that only 10 captains will be introduced at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. There will be a laser show. BCCI will not walk the path of detailed arrangements beyond this. Instead, an event may be organized before the India-Pakistan match on October 14. Besides, there will be a colorful program before the final on November 19.
However, India did not open its mouth about how the opening ceremony could be. The country’s media reported that they were trying to hide such secrets to surprise the audience.
If this happens in the end, it will be the first time in the history of cricket that the fans will watch the World Cup without any kind of opening ceremony. Meanwhile, from fans to journalists, everyone is shocked by BCCI’s decision. Some have even threatened to boycott the World Cup.
However, before this, the Indian media from various sources had brought forward the star presence of the World Cup opening ceremony and several aspects of the organization plan. Inside Sports has published a report on this based on the sources of PTC Punjab.
According to the news, there will be several Bollywood actors-actresses and singer-singers in the opening performances of the World Cup. Among them, legendary vocalist Asha Bhosle, singer and music director Shankar Mahadevan, vocalists Shreya Ghoshal and Arijit Singh will perform.
Ranveer Singh and Tamannaah Bhatia will be seen in the dance performance. Ranveer also participated in the official theme song of the World Cup.
