IPL: More Than Just Sports




There have always been controversies surrounding the news regarding the mixing of the entertainment field with the sports world. Some argue that the celebrities should stay in their own arena and let the players do their job on field. But then again, the agencies and administrative departments earn millions more when they sprinkle a little star dust over the crease dust.

IPL: More than just Sports

IPL: More than just Sports

And what is a better example than the Indian Premier League which is more than on flames in its fifth season. The advertisers need not work extra hard on getting more attention to the league this time; there is plenty of outside drama.

In a recent controversy that has been surrounding the IPL, Bollywood’s Emperor, Shah Rukh Khan, was earlier facing a life ban after his after-match actions in the Wankhede Stadium in Bombay. The BCCI officials have now decided to give him a 5-year ban from entering the stadium. Shah Rukh Khan was allegedly involved in abusive hurls in a drunken state, firing insults at the security guard as well as the BCCI officials.

It was right after his team, Kolkata Knight Riders had won their game and Shah Rukh entered into the field with a group of children, including those of his own. Both the sides have their own stories to tell from their on. The security say that he was drunk and behaving ill-mannered with everyone around, while the King Khan refutes the allegations and says that they were man-handling the children and that got intolerable by him.

In the most recent IPL controvery, Luke Pomersbach who plays for the Royal Challengers Bangalore, was arrested earlier today. Pomersbach was arrested on charges of molesting an American girl.

The owner’s son, Siddharath Mallya later tweeted: “The girl who is accusing Luke is saying he hit her ‘fiance’…what a load of f****** s***. She was all over me last night and asked for me bbm pin, so if he was her fiance she wasn’t exactly behaving like a future wife.”

He is currently out on interim bail and will be summoned by the court again.

IPL is more making the news on its off-field broadcast rather than its on-field play. There is plenty for the viewers to lick up and gossip about. Perhaps the officials might be vary that the finals may not be as juicy as it ought to be!
