Letters-83:

IPL has become the Indian Paisa League and all political parties are trying to milk the cow. Shashi Tharoor was batting well on a sticky wicket but Lalit Modi delivered such a googly that ground umpires A.K.Antony and Pranab Mukherjee could not take a decision. They referred the case to third umpire Manmohan Singh who took the final decision in consultation with ICC referee Sonia Gandhi and declared Tharoor hit wicket. Tharoor got out due to his own mistakes. But this has now opened a Pandora's box and the entire IPL has come in the firing line - Damodar Joshi, via email, Letters, Deccan Chronicle, Chennai, April 22, 2010.

Grateful thanks to Mr.Damodar Joshi and Deccan Chronicle.
