Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 14April 18 IPL fever grips the world
Today, cricket is playing a vital role in the world of sports and the introduction of the Indian Premier League (IPL) has made a big impact (“IPL is a league of the masses for the masses”, Gulf News, April 9). In my city, many cricket fans go to the stadium to watch and enjoy the hitting of sixes and fours from their favourite players. For matches, Bengaluru’s stadium is always full of children and adults. Already, people are eagerly waiting to watch the IPL matches. On the one hand, the game has developed dramatically and cricket players are paid a lot of money, compared to years ago. On the other hand, the way players are acting these days, whether it comes to ball tampering or other unethical practices, I am worried that the game might lose its image. Still, the game is liked by millions of fans, particularly during the IPL season. No doubt, IPL fever grips both in India and the world.
