Shiv Sena Chief Bal Thackarey has condemned the US-style cheergirls at IPL matches stating that the cricket field had been turned into a dance bar to “seduce” the crowd. Shiv Sena Chief Bal Thackarey condemned and criticized the cricket authorities for using scantily-clad cheergirls during IPL matches. He stated that sanctity of the sport was lost as the promoters have converted the ground into a dance bar. He further emphasized that when cricketers like Dilip Sardesai, Ajit Wadekar, Salim Durrani and Sunil Gavaskar used to go on the cricket field, the whole stadium used to become “cheerful” and nobody that time ever felt the need to bring dancers. He also questioned the government’s reluctance to stop the dance especially at a time when farmers in Vidarbha were committing suicide because they are burdened by debts. Bureau report NMTV.
