Recently the IPL has been in news not for the game as much as for the scandal, when three players of Rajasthan Royals had been arrested last week for spot-fixing. Preity Zinta leading actress and co owner of Kings XI Punjab IPL team,was pretty shaken up by the scandal and said that if the allegations of spot-fixing are true, it would be bad for the game.
As per sources, she said”Look, I’d still like to give the accused the benefit of the doubt. But if the allegations are true, then it’s really really sad for the country, for the game and for the IPL.So much faith is placed on these players. I don’t think they’ve any business betraying us like this. If the allegations are true then let me tell you the BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) is going to take very stern against these players”.
“I only wish people who are part of the IPL would take their responsibilities seriously. Finally, it’s not the players, but the team owner who has to face the uncomfortable questions on the raison d’etre of the IPL,” she said.
We feel that everybody should come together and remove this blot from the game.
