The eleventh edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) has reached its last weekend, and we are just two matches away from the knowing who will lift the trophy to become IPL champions in 2018.
On the other hand, SRH and Kolkata Knight Riders will have another go at each other to determine the second finalist of this edition. The final of the IPL will be played on 27th May while the second qualifier will be played on 25th May.
However, to everyone’s surprise, online broadcasters, Hotstar have already released a promo video of the final showing Kolkata Knight Riders facing Chennai Super Kings.
This has certainly raised speculation amongst the fans about whether the IPL 2018 is fixed or not?
The video has got the Twitterati’s talking, and some have speculated the IPL is fixed while some others have given a somewhat innocent explanation of the video.
Here is the video of the promo of CSK vs KKR final on Hotstar.
Hotstar Predicted IPL Final So Early CSKvKKR Lmao 😂

Some fans suggest that the video may be a case of advanced planning. Broadcasters sometimes prepare promo videos in advance, as there is not much time between the matches. The IPL final takes place just two days after the Qualifier 2 – so it is possible that Hotstar probably got two promos ready– one featuring CSK vs/ KKR and the other CSK v/s SRH?
A Twitter user posted a video clip seems to be the promo of CSK v/s SRH final on Hotstar.
For all #CsKvsKKr IPL final ad fans ..
