2013 Indian Premier League spot-fixing and betting case.
Initially Sreesanth's father Shantakumaran Nair termed his son's arrest to be a "larger conspiracy", and blamed cricketers M. S. Dhoni and Harbhajan Singh for connecting his son with the scandal, but later retracted the statement and regretted.

I accept the challenge. However as the instigator you need to formulate a format.
Clarification - Round 1 - Arguments?
Round 2 - Rebuttal?
Round 3 - Closing statements and summary
Is this format acceptable? If yes, then please make your case.

My argument is short and simple.

We might say, as many of us do that Chennai Super Kings is a good and respected team. However, it has tainted promoters that are Gurunath Meiyappan and his father in-law N Srinivisan who have been accused of the IPL scam.

The scam is not an allegation, it has a substantive basis, the scam involves match fixing, spot fixing, betting, and the money is being traced back to the underworld's infamous, credited for the 1993 Mumbai blasts, Dawood Ibrahim which makes it a very serious case.

Not only is the game being disgraced, thanks to Meiyappan the game is being connected and controlled by mafia bosses. The scam has cost N. Srinivasan his top post in the BCCI and his involvement in the affair is being probed by Justice Mukul Mudgal.

It is inevitably easy for me to come to the conclusion that if a promoter of a team is involved in betting and has confessed on doing so on his own team he might just have said something or rather instructed the team as the promoter to do this or that as he would earn from the bookies from the instruction.

It is hard to accept, unfortunate as well, but never the less - true. And who knows, If Meiyappan had gotten away with it, CSK might just have won the IPL again!
