The business of… the IPL scandal
The Indian Premier League was set up in 2008, and is now worth a cool $4 billion. But its fate is in the balance following recent allegations of corruption, fraud, and match-fixing.

Chirayu Amin, the interim chief of the IPL, is the man charged with cleaning up the tournament after the widespread corruption charges.
Amin recently told the Indian Express that the IPL would be “bigger, better and transparent” next year – but that it will not feature the glitzy (and controversial) post-match parties introduced by Lalit Modi.
“We have started the investigation in right earnest. We will make IPL bigger than what it is. Cricket is a religion in the country and it would continue to be so. My job as the chairman IPL is to manage the affairs and bring it up to the Governing Council, deliberate with them, and to take decision with consensus,” said Amin.
