Sreesanth,Vindoo Dara Singh and now Chennai Super King’s owner and BCCI chief Srinivasan’s son-in-law, Meiyappan, has been arrested in IPL betting case. Srinivasan who has been asked to put down his papers has denied to do so and says he is being targeted.
Lets see if Srinivasan can save his chair after this incident .
Indian wrestler and bollywood actor Late Dara Singh’s son Vindoo has been arrested for his alleged links with IPL spot-fixing bookies. Dara Singh got popular playing Hanuman in Ramayana the mythological Indian TV serial decades back although he was always a known Indian wrestler.His son also got an opportunity to play Hanuman but could not create that magic as of his father’s.
Vindoo’s police custody on the basis of his links with bookies has indicated clearly that the glamour world is as much involved in the wrong way of making money as it is involved in the right way by buying IPL Teams. Twists and turns and bigger names may be expected being involved in the racket. No matter what, IPL is enjoying its share of TRP . After all , negative publicity is also a publicity. Ain’t it?
Sreesanth was drunk and showed tantrums before getting arrested. After all he is a celeb cricketer and as the media says -Cricket’s Troubled Child ! But betting is racket and a player cannot be the kingpin. Who knows who is ?
Actor, Sanjay Dutt surrendered to serve three and a half years in arms case and cricketer,Sreesanth , got arrested for being involved in IPL betting. Soon we may have another T20 tournament inside the prison – Prisoners Premiere League !
