Our famous and most commercialized form of cricket always in headlines is the Indian Premiur League. In 2013 also, it was in headlines due to certain spot fixing allegations and court had appointed justice RM Lodha committee, to further investigate the case.
The investigation has ended and the most recognized teams namely “Chennai Super King” and “Rajasthan Royals” have been found guilty and are straight away suspended for two years.
The court is yet to announce its verdict and designate their share of retribution to Gurunath Meiyappan and Raj Kundra for these teams.
This ban itched on the teams would put IPL for a toss with just 8 teams in the picture.
The consequences would not be just financial, but also affect the image and name of leading cricketers forming a part of these cricket teams.
It is still hazy, if the teams are actually going to be banned for two years or will slip away paying hefty fines to the concerned authorities.
Court has ordered to investigate the administrative functions and responsibility and also decide the future of Sundar Ramana, Chief operating office of IPL.
BCCI panel is actively involved in the court’s investigation, and there could be some changes following this disclosure in the team, and structuring of BCCI too.
The complete 2013 IPL was sludged in the controversial betting case pulling a lot of cricketers and officials that were part of this but this verdict would create a history if the teams remain suspended.
