"It is the 15th year of IPL and on this milestone occasion, the closing ceremony for this year's IPL has to be really mega. It is a grand closing ceremony with the best of the global superstars coming to perform for the audience. It is going to be really huge because we are not just having two star icons performances for the offline stadium that are sitting inside the stadium and for the online viewers, " said Chanda Singh who is managing the closing ceremony of IPL 2022.
