I believe at one level IPL has become a whipping boy for many," Zinta told PTI during an interaction on the issue of Maharashtra drought that led to shifting of 13 matches. It must be noted that in , IPL was rocked by spot-fixing scandal due to alleged involvement of three Rajasthan Royals cricketer including former India international turned politician S Sreesanth.
The well-known Bollywood actress feels that it has been unfair as IPL has not only provided a platform for the emerging talent, but also created a window for franchise-based leagues in other sports in the country. While she made it clear that she has complete faith in the judiciary, Zinta questioned those who have filed PIL regarding usage of water to maintain stadiums in drought-hit Maharashtra.
But I have a question as to what all those people who have filed PIL done to resolve this crisis in Maharashtra. Let me tell you that I have worked extensively in a Maharashtra village for the well-being of elderly people. This is my responsibility towards the society," said Zinta.
Kings XI Punjab have not performed well last season and it hasn't been a great start to IPL-9 either but the co-owner is confident that they will do better than last year. Last year, our bowling was a bit weak but we have tried to strengthen that area. I am hopeful that we would be doing well," she sounded optimistic.

Some districts have simply taken a more aggressive stance toward off-campus behavior such as alcohol and drug use that, in the view of administrators, has a spillover effect at school. In , the 1,student Thomaston, Conn. Administrators said the arrest had disrupted the educational process because, among other arguments, the senior's younger brother was present during the traffic stop and thus other students would become aware of it. The expelled student challenged a Connecticut law that authorized school districts to punish off-campus behavior.
In , the Connecticut Supreme Court declined to strike down the law, but it ruled that possession of marijuana off school grounds in the boy's case had no "tangible nexus" to the operation of his high school. The newest arena for off-campus discipline is the Internet. A spate of cases has yielded conflicting court rulings on when a student's e-mail communication or personal Web site can run afoul of school rules.
Last September, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled that a student could be disciplined for a personal Web site called "Teacher Sux," which included derogatory comments about his principal and a teacher in the 14,student Bethlehem Area School District.
