IPL betting scandal ends up banning a few teams

By on

On Tuesday, Cricket’s Indian Premier League had to deal through mayhem. The panel appointed by the Supreme Court suspended two teams.

 

They suspended the teams soon after they found out that the officials of the respective teams were found to be culpable due to betting done on several matches.

India’s board came up stating that they will pay utmost respect to the judgment that came across and said that they will take all responsibility to make the game of cricket as clean as possible even though the decision was extremely shocking for everyone. The two teams namely Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings will be banned from participating in IPL for two years and these steps were taken to save and guard a noble game as cricket.

 

Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who is the one-day international captain of India, leads team CSK, while Steve Smith, who is an Australian star cricketer, leads team Rajasthan Royals. They were hoping to pass through his phase by paying some heavy fine however it seems like the panel as just not in the mood for any bit of leniency.

 

Not only this, it also ended up banning Gurunath Meiyappan, from taking part in any kind of activity involving cricket for his entire lifetime. Not to forget, the very verdict was also passed for Raj Kundra, who is Rajasthan team’s co-owner and actress Shilpa Shetty’s husband.

Rajendra Mal Lodha the chairman of the panel stated that their conduct has greatly affected the integrity and the picture of the game. The verdict was passed in capital New Delhi.

When Lodha was asked about the monetary losses he stated that they will not at all consider any kind of financial losses to the teams as well as the players. This is not at all a significant section to be taken into consideration.
