"IPL, the Indian Political League!" ran the headline of one Mumbai newspaper. The reference was to Maharashtra state's refusal to stage matches during the national elections. That effectively scuttled the Indian Premier League because the first game and the final plus 18 other matches were to be held in Mumbai. The speculation was that this was due to the settling of political scores; Sharad Pawar is the head of India's cricket board but he is also a cabinet minister and his party is an ally of the ruling Congress coalition. Perfect, but for one thing: two weeks ago, Mr Pawar expressed renewed interest in becoming the next prime minister. Sabotaging the IPL is the Congress party's revenge against Pawar.
