Indian Paisa League!!!

Through his statement that without Dada KKR is
not possible Shahrukh Khan watered the burning issue. Kolkata Knight Riders will have an all new team. No Dada and perhaps no Brendon McCullum or Chris Gayle. The only common link would be Shah Rukh Khan dancing in the stands and Juhi Chawla making a rare appearance. I can undoubtedly state that will the three seasons of the IPL till now it has not only mixed entertainment and game but also gave an origin to exceptional players like Saurabh Tiwari.

Some days ago I was cynical for the reason that of Lalit Modi, clash between the two team owners and exorcise of two teams that because of so called corruption the IPL would continue or not. But seeing the progress it looks bigger and better. There is no doubt about that with the involvement of Sahara Group who is now owner of an I.P.L team, this contest would be preeminent.

These days every news channel is debating on the subject is it right to bid a player. Discussing the same issue with my friend she said that this so called bidding is not right as it demoralize the moral of the players who doesn’t got big cash like gambhir. This reason seems to be right when R.C.B bid for Md.Kaif who has been a excellent fielder and performer each and every team owner was laughing which was insult to a player.Undoubdatly this bid is not bad for players like Gambhir and Yusuf Pathan who got very even 15-16 times more sum from their base price.

If professionalism is key to IPL's success, it is very important that professional morals are conserved. It is therefore a matter of grave apprehension that franchisee owners have raised the issue of inconsistency of interest vis-a-vis BCCI secretary and president-elect N Srinivasan. The latter's position as an owner of the Chennai Super Kings franchisee and a member of the IPL governing council is unfair.

Conflict of interest was the reason Lalit Modi was removed from the board of IPL, but the matter doesn't seem to have ended there. Concerns about conflict of interest need to be immediately addressed to build a sound foundation for the future of T20 cricket. A transparent and fair system will reduce the scope for manipulations and secure IPL's future. After the bid when this question was asked to the new Chairperson of the league he civilly answered this accusation is unsubstantiated and every owner is known with full information and dispensation of the league. As one and all know that is is not justified that an official of the board be in ownership of a team.

Lastly I hope this season is as its best. And produce players which can not only replace players like Sachin when he retires but also gives an astounding platform to the new talents. Till now the three seasons have been very flourishing and has got high-quality annotations apart from some distortion.
