Now even the official website of IPL – www.iplt20.com suggests that the tournament has not been played in the true spirit, not been played in a fair manner.
Today, the website has removed the IPL 2013 Fair Play Award table from its pages.
After all the controversy surrounding the IPL, with the ongoing IPL spot fixing scandal which is widening with each passing day, today IPL 2013 Fair Play Award table was removed from the official website.

Ironically the teams at the top of the Fair Play Award table were Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and the Rajasthan Royals (RR), both somewhere involved in all the controversies and at the centre of allegations of illegal activity.
On one hand, Chennai Super Kings is embroiled in a potentially fatally damaging controversy involving its CEO and team principal in IPL betting while Rajasthan Royals suffers similar humiliation as three of its active players were arrested last week on allegations of spot-fixing.
The Fair Play Award is given during each season of the IPL to the team with the best record of fair play. The winner of this award is decided on the basis of the points the umpires give to the teams.
The IPL website – www.iplt20.com - includes a league table which updates during the tournament.
Even as a cloud of doubt hangs over the franchise, CSK will contest the IPL 6 final against Mumbai Indians on Sunday in Kolkata. Rajasthan were eliminated by Mumbai on Friday night, during the time that CSK CEO and team principal Gurunath Meiyappan, also the son-in-law of BCCI president and India Cements head Ni Srinivasan, was arrested in Mumbai for his alleged role in betting in the IPL.
It can surely be said that IPL has lost its credibility …
