Bengaluru, April 17: A spell of summer showers in the evening cooling the weather and a Sunday holiday brought thousands of frenzied fans to the Chinwsamy stadium to watch an exciting tie between hosts Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) in the Indian Premier League (IPL-10) tourment here.
The 40,000-seat stadium was packed with fans from across the city and even from outside the state, thanks to a three-day holiday since Good Friday.
"IPL is a sellout in this cricket-crazy city every year. All tickets for the games on Friday and Sunday were sold out due to Easter holidays. With annual exams for schools and colleges over and summer vacation beginning, hundreds of students enjoy watching matches in the stadium than on television screen at home," a Kartaka State Cricket Association official (KSCA) told IANS.
