April gives India two things—the scorching hot weather and a super hot IPL—a sporting event for some, but a game of pride for many. With the return of the mighty Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Rajasthan Royals after a two-year ban, and 10000+ Spectators on Chepauk for the practice match—IPL 2018 definitely is here to make an impact. And, it just gets the launch it deserves, where The Yellow Lions face The Blue Army!
And for Bangaloreans looking to chill this IPL season with a pitcher of beer, paired with scrumptious spreads, and a big screen, rather than heading to Chinnaswamy Stadium and getting baked, here are some great places in and around the city where you can catch all the IPL action.
