Bishan Singh Bedi Calls ‘IPL’ the Biggest Scam in India
There has always been a debate over match-fixing in the game of cricket, especially, in the Indian Premier League (IPL). A section of people has shown proofs for the scams in IPL while the officials gave a clean chit to the lucrative tournament. Meanwhile, the former cricketer, Bishan Singh Bedi feels there is a lot of scams involved in the competition.
Over the years, the Indian Premier League (IPL) has grown a lot in stature. Crores of rupees are in the mix, and the brands across the world would like to connect with the tournament. Meanwhile, Bishan Singh makes an interesting comment.
No one knows where does the money come from – Bishan Singh Bedi
The former cricketer quoted there is a lot of scams going on in the Indian Premier League, but he doesn’t want to speak any more on that. He also added the performances in the IPL should not be the criteria for selection in the Indian team.
He reveals no one knows how money flows into the tournament and goes out. Bishan speaks on the second edition of the Indian Premier League, which was organised in South Africa for obvious reasons.
“I don’t want to say anything about IPL. There’s no bigger scam in India than IPL. Nobody here knows where IPL’s money comes and goes.” Bedi was quoted as saying by India Today.“The second edition of the IPL happened in South Africa and millions of money were taken out of the country without the permission of the Finance Minister.”
“IPL should not be the basis of Indian selection, local T20 tournaments should be. A team has players who are paid high and ones who get less money. The lower income player doesn’t have the skills, how does he catch up? The only way he sees is betting,” he added.
Well, it is quite a statement from the legendary cricketer in the Indian unit. It would be interesting to see how things would stretch out from the latest comment by Bishan Singh Bedi.
