Indian Premier League ie IPL is the most expensive and top level league in the world. In the last decade this league has earned a lot of name. In this league, not only the players, but the team and the BCCI also receive money. The IPL 2020 was to be held from March 29, but due to the corona virus, the league has to be postponed indefinitely, but now the design of the league is being re-designed. In view of the global epidemic, it is not possible to organize the 13th season of IPL in the recent past, but it is possible to organize this league after the next few months i.e. at the end of the year. Several reports have suggested that the BCCI is trying its best to host the tournament at the end of the year to avoid an estimated loss of Rs 4000 crore. This is also true, but the BCCI treasurer has given a befitting reply to the critics.
IPL is often called 'money-making machine'. The tournament has changed the face of T20 cricket, but it is seen by many as a mere occupation. Many people have suspected personal financial gain on BCCI's intention to host the tournament this year. In such a situation, the treasurer of the board, Arun Dhumal has said that the money of IPL goes to the players and not to the officials of BCCI. Dhumal said that IPL has provided financial stability to the board and sportspersons, while thousands of people from outside the region have also benefited them by providing employment. Apart from this, BCCI treasurer also believes that IPL has given a boost to the travel and tourism industry as well. Talking to Cricbuzz, Dhumal has said, 'This is the whole discussion that IPL is a money making machine, so be it. Who takes that money? That money goes to the players, that money does not go to any officials. That money goes in the context of the welfare of nations, travel and tourism industries, in terms of payment of taxes, reviving industries.
He has further said, 'Then why protest for money? Money is given to the players and all those present there to organize the tournament. The media will have to change the stance and tell about the benefits of this tournament which is happening. If BCCI is paying thousands of crores as tax, then it is going to nation-building, it is not going to Sourav Ganguly or Jai Shah or myself. In such a situation, you should be happy that money is being spent on sports.
