    It’s a hat-trick of problems in Indian Premier League (IPL) season 5 with fixing row, brawl and molestation charge, probably changing the definition of it to Indian Problem League.

    The week started with a spot-fixing TV expose on Monday and ended with the arrest of Royal Challengers Bangalore’s Luke Pomersbach on Friday for allegedly molesting an American woman after a late-night party of victory celebration and beating her Indian fiance at the team hotel. On Wednesday Shah Rukh Khan’s spat came to media from Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

    Shah Rukh Khan, who co-owns Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) since the first edition of IPL, is banned for five years from the Wankhede Stadium by Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) following his spat with MCA officials on Wednesday night after the match.

    The Australian right-handed batsman Luke Pomersbach who has also got history of brawls and brush with police in Australia was produced before a court in Delhi today and was granted a bail but the Delhi Police has been directed to secure the CCTV footage of the five star hotel where the incident took place and also the medical report of Peerzada, fiance of the American woman who was beaten by the player.

    It is not a problem, it is a way to create the TRP.

    Wait for the whole story. Neither is this woman clean nor is the guy with whom she had been for last few days. It was a sex deal which went wrong. Every body is working overtime to hide the truth to save IPL.

    IPL...Bad for Indian Economy-

    As we are living in one of the worst economic crisis situation, everyones expectation is when we will come out of the crises situation. But do we ever think about what harm the IPL will do for our economy...


    1) People will stop work in the evening to watch the IPL matches which will result into poor productivity.

    2) Most of the Indians will switch on TV until 11.30 PM everyday.
    Along with this Fan/AC/Lights will also consume Power and
    ultimately high usuage of electricity for these 2 months.

    3) Since people watch matches upto 11.30 or 12, the productivity in the next day will also get affected.
    \

    4) People used to discuss the matches during office ours, which will decrease the productivity during the day time also.

    5) April/may is the month for all board/Univerisy exams. All students will watch cricket match instead of preparing for exams which will result into poor performance in the exams.

    6) During holidays, people used to travel across the state or country which will greatly increase revenue to the tourism deparment and will provide jobs to numerous people. Because of IPL,everybody wants to sit at home and watch matches which will affect the Tourism in India.

    7) IncreasedTraffic Jams in the cities where the IPL matches played. which will result into high usage of fuel and more air pollution.
    Wondering who will get benifitted from this IPL ? All theIPL Franchise owners and BCCI. Not India. Indian government will get ONLY 80 Crore rupees as tax after sacrificing the economic growth.


    Now you say.. Is IPL bad for Indian Economy or Not?

    sorry dont buy your arguments and here are the following reasons:

    1. most people are already awake past 1100 PM watching their favourite serials so this theory of extra consumption of electricity doesnt not hold good.

    2. most people make love after putting children to sleep at 1130 and their productivity doesnt decrease why should it decrease only after watching IPL.

    3. the people who love to discuss in office will discuss about anything from daily soap to politics to poonam pandey to latest cookery show. why blame IPL.

    4. people who r giving board/university exams are around 18 years of age and they have voting rights which decide the fate of the country. i assume that they r mature enough to realise what is important for their future and what is not?

    5. i dont think people cancel their tour plans because of IPL.

    6. traffic jams and air pollutions have plagued india since mid ninties why blame only IPL? do traffic jams not occur on days there are no matches or in cities where matches are not played?

    IPL is a world class product. its time for BCCI/team owners/indian govt to clean it up and make it transparent.

    SRK won just because of Gautam Gambhir. He played major role as captain of SRK. So all the credit goes to Gautam Gambhir and i think he will try to continues his victory.
