Post Views: 21 In 2011 when Google first launched Google+, a lot of brands offloaded their content and themselves on it. Only to find that the level of interaction was nowhere close to other social networks especially Facebook. Some went immediately off it, saying, that there is enough traction for them on FB so they would not WASTE bandwidth here.

Blaming IPL for Spot-Fixing is Hypocritical

FacebookTwitterGoogleLinkedIn


Post Views: 26   The latest spot-fixing saga involving Test cricketer S Sreesanth and two other players has brought the negative focus back on the IPL.

We were seriously beginning to presume that IPL indeed WAS cricket. Now we know better. The second is
