Women's Premier League Season 2 Promises Thrilling Kickoff with Star-Studded Opening Ceremony

The anticipation is building as the Women's Premier League (WPL) gears up for its second season, commencing with a riveting clash between defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) and last year's runners-up Delhi Capitals at Bengaluru's M. Chinnaswamy Stadium. The cricket extravaganza is set to unfold with a glamorous touch, featuring a star-studded opening ceremony that promises to be a dazzling affair.

The Women's Premier League (WPL) second season is set to commence this Friday, featuring an exciting opening match between defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) and last year's runners-up, Delhi Capitals, at Bengaluru's M. Chinnaswamy Stadium. Bollywood sensation Shah Rukh Khan, known as the 'King of Bollywood,' will headline the star-studded opening ceremony of WPL season two. The ceremony will also feature appearances by popular Bollywood stars Shahid Kapoor, Kartik Aaryan, Varun Dhawan, and Tiger Shroff.

Shared videos from Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals showcase Shah Rukh Khan striking his iconic arm spread pose alongside former Australia cricketer and current DC captain, Meg Lanning. The interaction left the multi-time World Cup-winning skipper delighted. During his visit to the Bengaluru stadium, Shah Rukh Khan met with MI skipper Harmanpreet Kaur and DC vice-captain Jemimah Rodrigues. He extended his warm greetings to the players, even teaching Issy Wong his famous line from the classic film Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. Shah Rukh Khan ensured he connected with every player, leaving stars like Jemimah Rodrigues, Taniya Bhatia, Shafali Varma, and Pooja Vastrakar starstruck. In a heartwarming moment, Shah Rukh Khan reunited with his old friend Sourav Ganguly, the former captain of SRK's Kolkata Knight Riders. The two legends shared an embrace, evoking memories from Ganguly's captaincy in the early editions of the IPL.

The Women's Premiere League 2024 promises an exciting start, setting the stage for Delhi Capitals to overcome the disappointment of last year's finals loss to Mumbai. Meg Lanning and her team aim to secure the championship title in women's franchise cricket, adding another accolade to their international achievements. Running until March 17, the tournament will be hosted in Bengaluru and Delhi. The summit clash is scheduled for March 17 in New Delhi, with the eliminator preceding it on March 15. Women's cricket enthusiasts can look forward to an action-packed tournament hosted by Delhi and Bengaluru.
