NEW DELHI: The next edition of the Indian PremierLeague (IPL) is unlikely to see the glamour and glittery pom poms of exotic cheerleaders as a scandal is blowing through India’s cricket establishment about a South Africa . company from where the entertainers were sourced for IPL-3. According to a senior functionary of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), concerns that the South African firm that contracted the cheerleaders was involved in dubious activities has led the board to launch an investigation into the matter. IPL-4 may have little to cheer about


The board has already asked DNA Networks , the Bangalore-based firm that managed ground entertainment for all IPL franchisees, to provide all details with regard to the cheerleaders.  Cheerleading, a mainstay of Basketball and American Football in the US, was first introduced to the gentleman’s game in the IPL. Since the first edition of the IPL in 2008, the cheergirls proved to be a big draw among India’s cricket-watching audience. The board is concerned that they proved a bit too popular. There is concern over a scroll that used to appear during the telecast of IPL-3 matches, exhorting viewers to call a premium number if they wanted to chat with the cheerleaders, another board official, who asked not to be named, said. The board had asked Venkat Vardhan, MD of DNA Networks, for an explanation, the official said. CONTD
