Fans are palpably anticipating the curtain-raiser as Bangalore prepares for the Unbox Event 2023 on March 26. Two of the team's most prominent players, Chris Gayle and Ab de Villiers, have been admitted into the Hall of Fame, according to the franchise. In addition to this, the Bangalore squad will also conduct its first practice of the year. Virat Kohli and other team members will shortly join captain Faf du Plessis in Bangalore.
What event is going to take place at the Chinnaswamy this Sunday?
On March 26, Bangalore will hold a curtain-raiser function at the venerable Chinnaswamy Stadium. The public can go to the ceremony by purchasing tickets through Bangalore's official website, thus it is not just for celebrities.
Stadium officials, on the other hand, have been striving tirelessly to guarantee that Chinnaswamy Stadium is suitable to host the Unbox Event. The stadium has undergone significant renovations, including upgrades to the seating, lighting, and audio equipment.
The Chinnaswamy stadium clearly has a seating capacity of roughly 40,000, and the authorities anticipate a full house for the occasion. The stadium officials are also collaborating with the Indian T20 League's governing body to guarantee that all games are held in an atmosphere of security and safety.
In an unprecedented move, ITL franchise Bangalore will commemorate former players Chris Gayle and AB de Villiers by honouring their services to the team while competing in the Indian T20 League. As a thank you for their contributions, the team will permanently retire the batting legends' jersey numbers and welcome them into their Hall of Fame.
The majority of the group that ended up third in the 2022 ITL remained with the franchise. At the December 2022 mini-auction, Bangalore signed various peripheral international players such as Will Jacks and Reece Topley. Nevertheless, despite the English all-rounder being ruled out because of an injury, management has brought in Michael Bracewell from New Zealand as a replacement.
