No more cheerleaders in IPL
The spot-fixing scandal which rocked IPL this year, has forced the administrators to make some hard-hitting changes in the tournament.
BCCI has now decided to remove cheerleaders from the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League, which is scheduled to be held in April-May period next year.
BCCI vice-president Ravi Savant has confirmed the development. “There will be no cheer girls in the IPL matches,” he said.
Savant was visiting Nashik for an inter-university Twenty20 tournament organised by Yashwantrao Chavan Maharashtra Open University when he made these comments.
Savant, who also holds the position of vice-president of Mumbai Cricket Association, said that a total of 10 changes have been suggested by the panel which BCCI appointed to look into the spot-fixing scandal.
“All the recommendations of the committee have been accepted and will be implemented from IPL 7 onwards,” Savant said.
Cheerleaders have been present in all editions of IPL so far, and have courted various controversies over the years.
