First, the criticism over the schedule of the World Cup, then the chaos over venues, then the ticket scam, one after another BCCI is feeling the heat over hosting the showpiece event 2023. Just when they thought everything had fallen into place, the latest update over no opening ceremony for the World Cup on October 4 has made fans angry.
InsideSport earlier reported that BCCI had planned opening ceremony and even finalized stars such as Asha Bhosle, Ranveer Singh, Tamannah Bhatia, Shreya Ghoshal, Shankar Mahadevan, and Arijit Singh for the opening night. However, according to the latest reports. there would not be any opening ceremony.
If the reports are anything to go by, then the BCCI will only have captains meet tomorrow, followed by a laser show. Rather than opening the ceremony, BCCI will have a closing ceremony on November 19 or a grand ceremony before the India vs Pakistan clash on October 14.
