Singh believes that big players like them can not involve themselves in such things. They much care about their reputation than money. They won’t destroy their images in public eyes.
“If you ask me, today in cricket, a star has much more to lose than gain if he gets involved in this. Imagine a Virat Kohli or Dhoni getting into this. Things don’t just move by money, it is also the reputation that counts. They can’t sacrifice their reputation for such things. They are far bigger than all this,” Ajit Singh said.
“Even if you are talking just in financial terms, do you think they will get involved — both in terms of the endorsement that they get because of their reputation and star power, as also the other benefits that they get.”
