 This whole controversy has become an unnecessary too fan. Yes, there may be some questions about the way in which IPL runs. Clearly some governing council members may not be happy. Let all that be properly investigated. But to rubbish the IPl as a league then start casting aspersions on owners, alleging black money involvement, alleging funds from tax havens. I think this is stretching things way too far,

 In case of foreign direct investment in our country, money comes from Mauritius or Switzerland, no body questions it. How can it certainly become a big issue when it comes to IPL investigations? The finance Ministry I had heard on TV has promised a full inquiry into all this, let the inquiry be conducted. Till then, I don't think we should jump into conclusions. Yesterday, even something new appeared about match fixing. This is utter rubbish. Several of our political leaders are calling the IPL gambling den which is completely not true,

 If you don't understand success of the world's sixth largest sporting league, they should do their homework. They should look at other competible league in the world then figure out what the IPL really is. I don't think they even understand the business model of IPL. It is all very easy to make allegations but I think we should all calm down till the investigations is done and then conclude what we need to. The ultimate part is too many people are jumping on to the bandwagon. Several political parties are now using this as an excuse to make a big issue out of this. Let them wait for an investigation to be completed. See if there is any primafacie evidence of wrong doing and then do whatever needs to done thereafter. But right now there is too much speculations, things are actually way out of control,
