The IPL Scandal Cry!

Everybody, the media in particular, has been crying hoarse over the IPL controversy in relation to the formation of a new franchise, Kochi (a city of Southern India).

Why, when you deal in such huge huge money disputes quarrels controversies scandals and so on are bound to happen. Maybe things were under wraps so far and since this time a minister was involved it blew the lid. Again, India is not the only country where favoritism nepotism corruption and unholy nexus are held in high esteem.

Two new teams, Kochi and Pune, were auctioned recently for astronomical prices, even higher than the IPL Commissioner expected! There might be a time soon when every billionaire of the world would want to buy an IPL team or to have stakes in it. The money game is all set to accelerate further. With formation of new and newer teams the tournament duration will have to be increased from current 2 months to 3-6 months or maybe for a full year and it will fast become a deadly war of Business Vs Loyalty. Rivalries and scandals will be the order of the day. The esteemed values mentioned above will have added dimensions.

How much cricket is likely to be retained by IPL only time can tell. Meantime, get set to enjoy more and more of scandals with  some toppings of cricket thrown in!
