IPL is a cricket tournament which involves huge sum of money. It is the most-attended cricket league in the world and in 2014 ranked sixth by average attendance among all sports leagues.  A man who had filed public interest litigation challenging the auctioning of cricketers in the IPL, comparing it to human trafficking, has been fined Rs 25,000 by the Delhi High Court. A bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice C Hari Shankar dismissed the plea by Sudhir Sharma stating that it is “not a Public Interest Litigation but a ‘Publicity Interest Litigation”.

“Playing for these teams in fact raised their prestige,” the bench remarked adding that none of the contentions of the petitioner were true. The plea had contended that the players go through the auctioning process where they are purchased and sold through bidding corporates thus amounting to illegal human trafficking.

Sharma’s plea also stated that such practices promote corruption, nepotism and human trafficking by selling of players through open bidding on national television.
