The Madras High Court has admitted a PIL which petitioned to stop the ipl 2018 and charging the governing body of Indian Cricket, the BCCI that it has not implemented the Lodha Committee report which tried to prevent match-fixing in cricket. The High Court has issued a notice to the BCCI as well as the Indian government.

The PIL has been filed by IPS officer Sampat Kumar which stops the BCCI from holding IPL games. The appeal alleged that the Board had not taken any measures to check match-fixing.

The commission was set up after match-fixing accusations and tales of widespread bribery in IPL events.

The match-fixing accusations even led to the discontinuing of two franchisees- Jaipur Royals and Chennai Super Kings.

Kumar further claimed that without proper safety rules in place betting and unlawful actions can happen in the future IPL 2018 season. Kumar is no outsider to the IPL and was involved in the inquiry in the 2013 IPL spot-fixing scandal. Many players were suspended and were issued ban orders for involving in spoiling the name of the game.

The Indian Premier League will start with a match between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians on April 7, 2018, at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The match will start at 8 PM.

This time both, the Chennai Super Kings and the Rajasthan Royals are back in business after completing a ban of two years.
