As per the reports in CNN-IBN, The Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) is mulling over the idea of no after-match parties and cheerleaders in the eighth edition of IPL as they look to restore the reputation of the tournament.

It has been reported that BCCI has proposed banning these two activities from IPL 8. The sources also said that alcohol serving will be banned too as some stadiums do that during the matches.

This came after the suspension of Chennai Super Kings chief Gurunath Meiyappan and Rajasthan Royals co-owner Raj Kundra in the IPL spot fixing scandal. There will be stricter code of conduct for the players, officials and support staff.

IPL was rocked by spot-fixing controversy in its sixth edition when three cricketers – S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan – were guilty of spot-fixing during an IPL match. Actor Vindoo Dara Singh and Meiyappan were also involved in betting and had links with bookies.

While Vindoo got a reprieve from SC, Meiyappan was found guilty of betting by the SC.
