BCCI's Operation Clean-up: No cheerleaders!

The Board of Control for Cricket in India drew up an action plan on Monday in a bid to restore the credibility of the game that has taken a beating following the IPL spot-fixing episode.

Called 'Operation Clean-up', the plan comprises a series of measures to curb corruption in the cash-rich Twenty20 tournament.

The BCCI's all-powerful working committee, headed by head of the interim arrangement Jagmohan Dalimya, discussed the raging scandal while deciding to suspend Rajasthan Royals co-owner Raj Kundra on charges of gambling during the just-concluded sixth edition of the IPL.

The BCCI hopes these 12 points of ‘Operation Clean-up’ will rid the IPL of controversy.

1. Removal of sleaze; no cheerleaders, no after-match parties for players and support staff.

2. Strict code of conduct to be followed by players, support staff and franchise owners.
