Don`t ban IPL, get rid of evils in the game: UddhavMumbai: Shiv Sena executive president Uddhav Thackeray on Sunday said he is not in favour of banning the controversy-ridden Indian Premier League (IPL).

IPL is a good entertainment for sports lovers cutting across age groups, Uddhav told reporters. "Just get rid of the evils like fixing, bookies and incidents like the Shah Rukh-MCA officials brawl. Otherwise, IPL is good," he added.

Sena chief Bal Thackeray had yesterday in the party mouthpiece `Saamana` criticised Shah Rukh over the episode that took place at the Wankhede cricket stadium here.

Congress leader and former Union Minister Gurudas Kamat said he was also against scrapping of IPL.

"Negatives are there in all fields. We need to overcome them and bring about improvement," he said, when asked about the controversies surrounding the Twenty20 tournament.
