The IPL 2022 final is here. The summit clash of one of the world’s biggest sporting leagues this season is being staged at the world’s largest cricket stadium- the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Before the start of the clash, the closing ceremony of the tournament was held which made for a spectacular viewing experience for those in the stadium as well as those following the game on television.
The ones present at the venue were witnesses to an electrifying atmosphere as Bollywood Ranveer Singh performed before AR Rahman mesmerized the audience with his songs. A moment that is set to remain with the audience who watched it live will be the entire stadium that can accommodate over 100,000 people, singing along with Rahman to his popular rendition of “Vande Matram.”
A video of the same has been shared by a fan present at the stadium:
