In the wake of the raging spot-fixing controversy threatening to blow into unimaginable proportions, the IPL, with the youth as its biggest fan-base, seems to have got a thumbs-down from the very same constituency.
A survey conducted by Hammer (http://www.hammerit.in/), a social interactive platform, headquartered in Ahmedabad, has revealed that a whopping 85 per cent of the youth are no longer interested in the IPL.
The survey which opened last Friday, a day after the spot-fixing allegations hit the headlines, was open until Tuesday and the sample size, according to Hammer, was in ‘thousands.’
Amit Khanna, one of the co-founders of the firm, said that it would be right in saying that the polls reflected the mood of the youth in ample measure.
Further, the poll also showed that around 55 per cent still feel that fixing has not ceased to exist in the on-going edition. The survey also painted a gloomy picture for next year’s edition with close to 65 per cent of the opinion that the fixing revelations will ‘kill IPL 7’.
