It is because of the IPL that names of budding cricketers like Naman Ojha, Umesh Yadav and Ambati Rayudu can be heard, the Minister told reporters, adding that No one would have heard of these names, had the IPL not taken place.

There may have been irregularities and problems in the IPL, but these were being looked into by the BCCI and the IPL governing council, he said.

Because of IPL, cricket has acquired international standards which is good for the game, he said.

To a poser, Scindia said he did not agree with Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan`s statement that IPL matches would not be allowed in the state. "I am strongly opposed to any move to banning IPL matches in Madhya Pradesh," he added.
