The co-owner of KXIP, Ness Wadia has expressed his opinion about introducing the National anthem before the beginning of every match in Indian Premier League. According to Ness Wadia, there is no need of arranging an opening ceremony in Indian Premier League. Rather it would be better if national anthem can be played before the start of all the matches.
Ness Wadia has also mentioned that even in movie theatres, the national anthem is played before the beginning of the movie. Even in Indian Super League and Pro Kabaddi League, the national anthem is played before the start of every match. The national anthem is also played before every match in NBA.So, BCCI should introduce this in the upcoming edition of Indian Premier League. Ness Wadia told that he had wrote many letters to BCCI for introduction of the national anthem before every game. Now, he will also like to write a letter to the new President of BCCI, Sourav Ganguly about this matter.
Also, the teams in Indian Premier League are interested to play preseason friendlies against other sides of the rest of the World. It might be helpful for them to increase the brand value of the team World wide.
