An exciting season of the 17th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is in full swing. With back-to-back games, fans are super thrilled to watch their favourite cricketers knock sixes and boundaries in the domestic T20 format.

The coveted cricket league that began on March 22 is going strong with crores of fans watching it every evening. The craze for the game is so much that fans are sleeping outside stadiums to get tickets for the matches.

Though BCCI has released online tickets for every IPL match this year, fans are queuing outside stadium for offline booking. A picture of fans sleeping outside the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur has been going viral on social media.

Rajasthan Royals (RR) is scheduled to clash with Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) today in Jaipur. Considering the popularity of both the franchises, fans thronged the stadium and had to sleep outside the stadium so that they can queue early in the morning to get offline tickets.

Rajasthan Royals (RR) have been enjoying an unbeaten run in the ongoing IPL and looking forward to winning their winning streak today. The Sanju-Samson team has played three matches and triumphed in all of them.

Apart from the RR fans, supporters of RCB also flocked to Jaipur to watch their favourite cricketers despite their poor performances. Unfortunately, the popular franchise with star players like Virat Kohli, Maxwell, Faf du Plessis, Dinesh Karthik and many more, has failed to perform in IPL.

Fans are hopeful that the team will at least play well, especially after the stupendous performance of the women’s RCB team in the recently concluded WPL (Women’s Premier League).
