Poll | Should IPL continue after suspension of two teams?

Controversy swirled around the 2013 editions of the league with former pacer S Sreesanth and two other Rajasthan cricketers being arrested on suspicion of taking money to concede a fixed number of runs. Sreesanth, who denied any wrongdoing, was subsequently banned for life by the Indian board.

Cricket fans are speculating about the future of IPL after a panel appointed by the Supreme Court proposed two-year suspensions on the Chennai and Rajasthan franchises in a corruption scandal that erupted two years ago.

The panel, set up in January to determine the quantum of punishment in the case, also recommended life bans on Chennai Super Kings official Gurunath Meiyappan and Rajasthan Royals' Raj Kundra from all cricket-related activities. Meiyappan, son-in-law of International Cricket Council (ICC) chairman Narayanswamy Srinivasan, and Kundra, a former Rajasthan co-owner, had been found guilty of illegal betting.
