Many cricket pundits may have labeled the IPL as a money making machine for the BCCI but board treasurer Arun Dhumal had a contrary argument. During an interview to Cricbuzz, he said that this whole talk of IPL being a money-making machine, so be it. Questioning the opposition to money, Dhumal explained that the money goes to the players and not to the office bearers. He added that the money also helps in the welfare of the nation, the travel and tourism industry, in terms of industries being revived and taxes being paid. Dhumal also urged the media to change its stance and tell everyone about the benefits of IPL. He though reiterated the fact that the postponed cash-rich league will only happen if it is safe to play.
