IPL 2023 will start from 31 March
T20 league has a deep connection with controversies
New Delhi. It is about 2012. There was a match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Pune Warriors. It was a do-or-die match for Pune, as a defeat meant elimination from the league. On May 19, there was a match between the two teams. Even after exerting full force, the Pune team could not achieve success and lost the match by 34 runs. The grief of defeat was such that two Pune players did amazing feats. One of these players had been in the news earlier as well, which will be mentioned later.
In IPL 2012, Rahul Sharma and South African fast bowler Wayne Parnell were included in the team of Pune Warriors. After losing the match from Kolkata, Rahul and Wayne Parnell reached a party, where they were taken into custody by the police. Both the players were accused of taking drugs in the rave party. Although Rahul Sharma and Wayne Parnell were released after taking the test, there was an uproar when both of them tested positive. Rahul Sharma and Wayne Parnell said in their clarification that they were not aware of the rave party. The party he went to attend was a birthday party.
Rahul did not get a place in the team
Rahul Sharma has played 4 ODIs and 2 T20 matches for India. After this incident, Rahul could play only one more match for Team India and his international career came to an end. Apart from Pune Warriors, Rahul has also been involved in the teams of Sunrisers Hyderabad, Delhi Dare Devils and Deccan Chargers in IPL.
