IPL match @ Ferozshah Kotla

IPL season 4 …manoranjan ka baap

(Bhagwaan jab deta hai chappar faad kar deta hai)

Date : April 20, 2011

2:00 PM : Thinking of Cycle Agarbatti ??  Kya Bhagwaan hai

2:30 PM : @amitguptaz digging deep into excel sheets @indiatimes office

4:30 PM : @amitguptaz cheering for Delhi Daedevils from Super Hospitality Hill A South east stand of Ferozshah Kotla Stadium with 3  team members.

These complimentary passes for the match were sponsored by my office Times Internet Limited. I was among the lucky one along with Hemant , Naveen and Gagan to got these passes from our Business Head  Archana Vohra . Thanks a ton.  Have a look at the lovely envelop and the ticket to match below.

Complimentary Tickets to the IPL match at Kotla

Yes you read it right, each ticket was worth Rs 20,000 . This gives access to east hill section of the stadium ; which is most premium location and also have a hospitality section (will come to it later).

3:15 PM : Full speed ahead to Feroz Shah Kotla ground. I must have broken my own record of highway driving of 80KMPH ;p

4:00 PM : Got parking some 2 Km from stadium and we all rushed towards the stadium. Even took an Auto for a Kilometer of ride 🙂

4:30 PM : See below where were sitting, standing, roaming , dancing and cheering for the Devils

It was my first experience to watch match at the stadium and it can’t be bigger and better than this. It took us all some time for this feeling to sink (Some drinks obviously helped all of us).

The hospitality area was another experience. Watching the live match from air conditioned zone with refreshment and drinks on the house, took the experience to another level all together.

Back to cheering after the break. We were all loaded with merchandise of Delhi daredevils. And in true delhiwalla style we carried it all back with us. Anyone who want a piece raise your hand.

BTW the fans were spraying water to keep all enthusiastic fans like us. And few like me also took shelter in the hospitality zone to enjoy the match from cool zone.

And then like all good things the match also come to an end. We were all happy (may not be reflected in pic below ; ya I am fan of the loosing side) and super charged even after the match.

So match ho gaya after match abhi baaki hai. What next …

The moment we stepped out everyone from Star News to P7 wanted a byte from us about the match. Well literally Naveen and Gagan were in their best avataar as the sports analyst. Talking from team composition to batting technique of Virender Sehwag.

What a day !!!
