Indian Premiere League Betting and Sports Fixing Controversy

IPL is the acronym for Indian Premier League. It is an annual league that is held in the Indian subcontinent. Numerous teams come together to represent cities and play cricket. Please note here that cricket is not even and Indian game originally but the English influence has been such that the masses have flocked to watch these matches. However, it is not that the local players get to represent their city.

There is an auction that is held where players are bid for. That is where team owners get their chance to buy players. This also means that there is no fixed period for which a player will be with a team. For example, if one player is playing for Kolkata Knight Riders a particular year, then he may be playing for Mumbai Indians the next as well.

Now, there has been a record where it is clearly visible to each and every-one in the audience that the match has been fixed. This is because players are easily missed catches and so much so, they are actually letting go of a match that is already won. Literally, the masses have seen matches change direction in the last over. Though cricket viewers know that this is totally possible genuinely, this is not the case with IPL. This is not the problem. The problem is that match fixing and betting are illegal in India.

But, the State definitely has other plans.
