People who are raving about IPL are mad: Bishan Singh BediZeenews Sports Bureau

New Delhi: Former India captain Bishan Singh Bedi lashed out at the Indian Premier League and asked the youngsters ‘don`t fall for this trap’ as the Twenty20 extravaganza make them ‘go astray’.

“Players like Rahul Dravid, Adam Gilchrist have finished with the game. Michael Clarke does not want to play T20 cricket for Australia; Sachin Tendulkar doesn`t want to play T20s for India. This is just an outing for them to have some fun and in the process, make a quick buck. Youngsters should not take it as a role model activity, but unfortunately, they will,” he told Mid-Day.


“People who are raving about IPL are mad. They are raving about IPL because of the money. This nonsense is all about money, money and more money. The base of the entire IPL is very, very fragile. It is a business proposition and any business must have the base of ‘principles first, profits afterwards’. But, here, there are no principles, only profits and that too, only for the players and BCCI,” he added.

Mr Bedi is 100% wrong. IPL is complete entertainment. How many goes to watch Test cricket ? IPL is also a truth and so many cricketers are involved in it. Mr Bedi is not the flag bearer of truth. He is saying this because no one have shown interest in him. Grapes are sour.
