The streets of Cape Town will be brimming with Bollywood stars and Cape Minstrels today at the IPL launch.
Following the news conference held by the DLF Indian Premier League today, there will be a carnival through the streets of central Cape Town to celebrate the launch of the series in South Africa.
According to the IPL website, the parade will feature a float for each team, one for the DLF IPL itself, as well as various teams of Cape Minstrels. Keep a lookout for cricket players, Bollywood stars and other celebrities who will also be on the floats.
The Cape Minstrels will welcome the cricketers to the Mother City with their uniquely Capetonian art form as they march through the streets.
