The 2023 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) got off to a splendid start on Friday. Defending champions Gujarat Titans got the better of Chennai Super Kings by five wickets in the opening match at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. 

Apart from the thrilling match and explosive batting by promising batters Ruturaj Gaikwad and Shubman Gill, fans were also excited by the introduction of Bhojpuri commentary for the first time in the tournament. Ravi Kishan was part of the commentary panel and he entertained fans with his Bhojpuri commentary during the season opener.

Kishan’s Bhojpuri commentary during MS Dhoni’s sixer in the match was highly entertaining. The video of Dhoni’s six along with Kishan’s commentary has reportedly gone viral over various social media platforms.

Several fans have liked the video and given amusing comments.

“Cannot believe it took 15 seasons to get Bhojpuri commentary for the IPL. Unmatched entertainment!” tweeted a fan.

In response to the entertaining comedy another fan wrote, “That’s how you call an end to a cricket game. Bhojpuri commentary is the winner of this year’s IPL.”
