Hashtag “Boycott IPL” is trending in the micro blogging social media site after team India got unofficially eliminated from the ongoing Asia cup tournament. The team which is surviving with outside chance to enter the next stage of the tournament, got defeated back to back by Pakistan and Srilanka. Fans who got extremely upset, wanted IPL to be banned as they think players are not concentrating on the International matches.
On Tuesday, team India got outsmarted by Srilanka after getting defeated by Pakistan in the previous match. Sri lanka registered a six wicket win against the inexperienced bowling line-up. This left Indian team to expect Afghanistan’s win against Pakistan and Sri lanka’s win against the same team in the upcoming matches to qualify for the next stage.
With very less possibilities for the team to get into the next stage, fans started blaming the cash rich IPL league for the poor performance of the players. Ahead of the next T20 world cup which is scheduled to be played later this year, netizens want IPL to be banned.
Its time to say #Goodbye to IPL. Bcoz of IPL players like Bhuvi Chahal KL Rahul and #RishabhPant are not focusing on international cricket.#BCCI and Coach Dravid take note of this and include match winners Shami Ashwin in T20 World Cup#IndianCricketTeam #INDvSL #BoycottIPL pic.twitter.com/IoS49bVs4y

IPL should be boycotted. The only way the players earn money from playing should be by playing for the country. This will pressure them to work hard for the national team inorder to maintain their position in the national team. #Boycottipl

Players earn enough money in ipl, they don’t have a strong reason to play for country
Even after low scores and losing matches for india you will see many players laughing and cracking jokes .
We indian fans get so disappointed every time and no one really cares #boycottipl
