IPL Fever Takes Over Lord's as Fans Enjoy CSK-SRH Final at Home of Cricket

New Delhi: The Board of Control for Cricket in Indian (BCCI) takes pride in the fact that the Indian Premier League (IPL) is regarded as arguably the best T20 league in the world and this latest incident simply attests to it.

Following the end of the first Test between England and Pakistan at the Lord's, few fans remained seated at the venue as the organisers decided to broadcast the IPL final between Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad on the giant screen.

In the video uploaded by a Times Journalist, the Lord's can be seen converted into an 'IPL Fan Park', with spectators sitting on the ground and watching the final on the big screen.

Pakistan trashed England by 9 wickets on just the fourth day of the Test and after being set a target of just just 64 for victory Pakistan finished on 66 for one before lunch to go 1-0 up in this two-match series. This gave the organisers an opportunity to show the IPL final to the fans present present inside the venue.

In the 2018 edition of the IPL final, Chennai Super Kings locked horns against Sunrisers Hyderabad — the two teams who finished second and first respectively in the group phase.
