IPL to probe KKR match fixing controversy
KKR has been carrying a bag full of controversies this IPL season, with the latest being rumours of recent IPL match between the KKR and Royal Challengers Bangalore was fixed. KKR lost the match despite putting up a spirited 173-runs on the board
AFTER FACING accusations of racialism against its foreign players, the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) now find themselves in a fresh controversy over rumours that the recent IPL match between the KKR and Royal Challengers Bangalore was fixed.

What is giving currency to this speculation is the manner in which KKR dropped its top scorer for the match against the Royal Challengers. The team, which has played very badly during the tournament was not expected to play with a depleted side, fighting as it was to salvage some lost pride.

What raised the suspicion and has forced the IPL commissioner Lalit Modi to announce an inquiry is the fact that Hodge instead of being present at the dressing room of the team was seen present at the hospitality box.
 
IPL commissioner Modi on Wednesay (May 13), said that the footage of the match between two sides will be looked into to see whether the match was fixed.

He also said that anti-corruption unit will investigate about Hodge's presence in the hospitality box. KKR lost the match despite putting up a spirited 173-runs on the board much to shock of supporters.
