After a much hyped release of 6UP game in IPL where one can predict runs in an over and send it through SMS to win prizes. IPLAYUP George Tomeski along with 6UP ambassador Shane Warne and Lalit Modi, Chairman and Commissioner, Indian Premier League. AS per IPL release
6UP can be played at only Rs 5 for an entry, thus contributing to a prize for the over, as each over has a minimum prize of Rs 10,000 that grows with each SMS. The important thing is the rupee prize is won or shared by the player or players that demonstrate the greatest level of skill in an over. In addition IPLAYUP as part of its commitment to community will give part of the earnings to a charity."
Adam Gilchrist and other players criticises the concept of 6UP and Sports minister M S Gill too criticises it as according to him it's a form of gambling and encourages gambling which is banned in India, so BCCI and ultimately IPL has to drop the idea of 6UP for now.
