Former BCCI President Manohar Calls For Suspension Of Indian Premier League
Published March 27, 2014
AFTER PARTY: In New Delhi, Digbijay Mishra wrote the BCCI decided to stay away from organizing “controversial” after-match parties in this year’s IPL "and has left it to the team franchises’ to take a call on the matter." These after-match parties, on a full season basis, ride various sponsorship tie-ups worth Rs 100-150 ($16.6M-$25M) crore "and comes handy as secondary source of revenue for the franchises." IPL after-match parties have made headlines "mostly for the wrong reasons," for instance, the spot-fixing of matches during IPL 6 (Indian BUSINESS STANDARD, 3/26). The PTI reported a court pulled up the Delhi Police on Wednesday "for delay in proceedings in the IPL spot-fixing case." The court "was irked over the delay in completion of the scrutiny of documents filed by the police along with the charge sheets in the case." The judge directed the police "to furnish and supply all the documents by May 16, the next date of hearing" (PTI, 3/26).
