Do you think IPL is FIXED?

Are all matches of the IPL fixed? It has always been the case that fixing has caused the game to be disrupted. Due to these and other reasons, match-fixing is still regarded as one of the most serious crimes in sports, no matter what the circumstance, no matter who does it, they will always be punished.

There have been allegations and rumors that some IPL matches are fixed, but there is no concrete evidence to support these claims. The IPL and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), which oversee the league, have strict rules in place to prevent match-fixing and corruption. They also have a robust system in place to investigate and punish any individuals or teams found to be involved in such activities.

In many ways, fixing is a game that plays on the emotions of cricket fans and makes a mockery out of the game that is cricket. During the biggest T20 league in the world, the Indian Premier League (IPL), there have been a lot of allegations of fixing. Many people find it difficult to comprehend that IPL is what it is today, they think it is a fixed system.

Counterarguments and Measures Taken

However, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the IPL governing council have vehemently denied any allegations of match-fixing or scripting.

They have implemented stringent anti-corruption measures, including the appointment of an Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) and the implementation of strict protocols to ensure the integrity of the matches.The BCCI has also taken action against individuals found guilty of corruption, handing out bans and suspensions to players, officials, and team owners involved in such activities.

For instance, the CSK and Rajasthan Royals teams were suspended for two years (2016 and 2017) due to their involvement in the 2013 spot-fixing scandal.Moreover, the unpredictable nature of cricket itself makes it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to script an entire match. The game’s dynamics, with factors such as weather, pitch conditions, and individual performances, make it nearly impossible to choreograph every delivery and outcome.


In conclusion, while it is always possible that there may be isolated incidents of corruption in any sports league, there is no evidence to suggest that the IPL is a fixed or scripted competition. It is a real and competitive league, and the teams and players are fighting to win every match.

Why IPL is not banned if it is fixing matches ?

Match-fixing has not been proven in a solid manner. In fact, every sign mentioned above could also be regarded just as a coincidence by anyone, and not connected with fixing in IPL. The Indian Premier League is a billion-dollar business game in India and it is the sixth biggest league in the world. The league generates a large amount of tax revenue for the government.
