It is time to clean up Indian cricket. If the BCCI is unwilling to act, it is for other stakeholders to do so. Unfortunately, they are guided by self-interest or are toothless. By SURESH MENON

Good article, you say only Sahara owners stood against BCCI, there are other owners who also stood against BCCI in past. Many teams paying price either terminated or in arbitration. But for CSK, any other team would have been terminated with GC members readily available in the middle of the night. The players rules are formed in keeping view benefits of CSK. The stadium agreements benefit CSK. Franchisees will have to bear the cost of all probes and measures which are going to implemented by BCCI.
Dear Mr.Menon, there are many skeletons to take out. There are people in franchisees who are fed up with these BCCI dictatorial attitude and will give you material that can lead to cleaning of IPL, good governance. Mr.Dalmiya banning cheerleaders is JOKE

It is an open secret that the State Cricket Associations (SCAs) are
being controlled by this or that politician. It is only on account of
huge money with these cricket bodies that we see all politicians,
irrespective of their political party, are associated with the SCAs.
One can understand how money nurtures rare friendship between these politicians who are associated with one or more of State cricket
associations.
As regards BCCI, there is a very clear need for transparency in all
its commercial deals with players, advertisers etc. and public should
know whether tax liabilities related to remuneration payments of
Indian and foreign players are discharged properly. To reduce impact
of money power, it is time we ensure that BCCI functions like a listed
public company, with disclosure practices. . All tax benefits and
other concessions which BCCI and State Cricket Associations enjoy need
to be forthwith withdrawn.
