IPL 2023 has been downright entertaining, to say the least, and the way things have been unfurling from on-field thrillers to off-field antiques, one would be obviously worried about what exactly is going to be the fate of the tournament. We have seen many blockbuster editions of the tournament but at the end of it all, the game is being played and it has garnered all possible attention that you would have wanted it to.
There were a couple of unfortunate incidents that unravelled too and the Indian arcade was abuzz with them till the dying extent. The first one of them was that of Sourav Ganguly and Virat Kohli not shaking hands while the second one was between Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir leaving the audience in high expectations.
Here is what has kept IPL 2023 as an absolute blockbuster
Former Indian head coach who have previously been a part of the same unit in his coaching capacity for a team where Virat Kohli led the show, opened up on this incident. Ravi Shastri was clear on the fact that seniors who are responsible towards making the game a better one are somehow involved in tarnishing it and the kind of example that has been up for grabs, it is not the right ones for any audience.

Speaking to ESPNCricinfo, Shastri said, “After the sequence of events last week, someone like a Kohli, someone like a Dhoni…Dhoni knows he’s a pro, that there is a camera on you and that is because you guys deserve it after what you guys contributed to the game. There will a camera on you, like there was on Sachin Tendulkar. Remember once the game is over, the camera is on you all the time until you get into that dressing room. You need to be careful, it’s like you are flagged off. If you have that in your mindset…camera, and once the game is over, you will be fine. You can get a lot of brownie points using that camera.”
However, these incidents aren’t new in cricket. We have seen how the world has been dominated from merciless sledgings to incidents that would usually set you off. It has always been touted that things are better left without an intervention because at the end of it all it would keep on happening and there is no stopping them.
