Biggest scam in India is IPL said, the former Indian captain.

As captain of India, Bedi was involved in some controversies.

Following India's record-breaking run-chase in the 3rd test of the 1976 series against the West Indies, the West Indies opted for an aggressive four-man fast bowler attack for the 4th test. Bedi objected to their tactics of bowling beamers because they couldn't get Indian batsmen out, and declared the Indian first innings closed early after two players were forced to retire hurt. Subsequently, five players were absent hurt in the second innings of the match.

In England's tour of India in 1976–77 he accused John Lever of using Vaseline to illegally polish the ball in the third Test at Madras. Lever wore Vaseline strips on his forehead to keep the sweat out of his eyes; he was subsequently cleared of any wrongdoing.

In November 1978, he became the first captain to concede an international cricket match. In a one day international against Pakistan at Sahiwal, India, with 8 wickets in hand, required 23 runs from 14 balls. Bedi, however, recalled the batsmen from the crease and conceded the match in protest at the bowling of Surfaz Nawaz who had bowled 4 bouncers in succession with not one being called wide by the umpires.

Bishan Singh Bedi has once again come into after he criticized Indian premier league calling it a big scam.

There is no bigger scam in India than IPL. Nobody knows where IPL money comes and goes.

The second edition of IPL was held in South Africa millions of money was taken out of the country without the permission of finance minister.

IPL should not be the basis of Indian selection local T20 tournaments should be.

A team has players who are paid high and ones get less money. The lower income player doesn't have skills how does he catch up?

The only way he sees is betting. I have a lot of experience in cricket, you can tell what is happening in that match. If we stay blind even while seeing then it's our choice.

72 years old also criticized Virat Kohli for misuse of power and influence to oust former Indian coach Anil Kumble.

The Indian team is currently touring Australia to play three T20Is, Four tests and three ODIs. The first T20 match will be played in Brisbane on 21 November.
