Opening and closing ceremonies were a regular feature of IPL in the opening decade of the competition. However, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, these celebrations took a backseat and for the first time since 2019, a closing ceremony has been organised.

Even this year there was no opening ceremony on March 26, when the IPL started. It is understood that the decision to hold the closing ceremony was an afterthought, taken at an Apex Council meeting later.

As per reports Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh and oscar-winning composer AR Rahman will be performing at the ceremony. It is understood that there will be a special show, chronicling the journey of Indian cricket over the last seven decades to celebrate 75 years of Indian independence.

The League stage of IPL 2022 will conclude on May 22 and at the moment, only GT and LSG have booked their place in the playoffs. Kolkata will host Qualifier 1 and Eliminator while Qualifier 2 and the final will be held in Ahmedabad.
