The Indian Premier League (IPL) is known for the grand cricketing extravaganza where franchises never leave any stone unturned to win the championship. The tournament started a decade ago in 2008 and has grown ever since. It is perhaps the biggest platform for youngsters and also a stepping stone for them in order to groom themselves for international games in the future.
A golden coloured IPL trophy is presented to the champion teams, which stays with them a year before the next seasons of the tournament starts. However, there’s a script in Sanskrit, which is engraved on the trophy. There have been a number of cricketers who were unknown entities ahead of the tournament but has grabbed eyeballs in front of packed stadiums and viewership on televisions.
Recently, a Twitter handle of Vedic School posted the actual meaning of the transcript on the trophy. He is what they wrote on the social media. The tweet read: “Not many of us know, the motto of IPL is in Sanskrit; same is inscribed on IPL trophy as well. #IPL It is “Yatra Pratibha Avsara Prapnotihi”, means “Where talent meets opportunity”. Hindi – जहां प्रतिभा अवसर प्राप्त करती है ।”
