Hello mylotters, Its been just a few weeks from the time the two new teams were announced and one of the teams is already in a controversy. Amd the main character in this controversy is Shashi Tharoor. I still have not completely understood what the controversy is all about. http://thatscricket.oneindia.in/news/2010/04/13/ipl-4-kochi-lalit-modi-shashi-tharoor-controversy.html The minister is a stakeholder in the ipl team. Then why is it so controversial. Do you think the ministers should not have a stake in the IPL teams. Then who should be?

He is the minister of the country. He should be above the others. What was he thinking going and buying stakes for Sunanda Pushkar. He was just too flamboyant and over the board person. It was too much for the Indian Politicians to take.
