Owners of two IPL teams suspended for two yearsJuly 14, 2015
The owners of two top teams in the Indian Premier League (IPL) have been suspended in a corruption case. A panel set up by India’s Supreme Court gave a two-year suspension to the owners of the Chennai Super Kings and the Rajasthan Royals after they were found guilty in an illegal betting and match-fixing probe. On top of that, two men have been banned from cricket activity for life: Raj Kundra, Royals co-owner and husband of Bollywood star Shilpa Shetty; and CSK official Gurunath Meiyappan. The Super Kings, captained by MS Dhoni, reached 4 IPL finals, winning 2 of them; the Royals led by Australian Steve Smith, won the inaugural tournament in 2008. This punishment now brings the world’s richest T20 league down to 6 teams, and it could affect finances and broadcasting rights.
