Cheerleaders Enter the World of Cricket
There has been quite a bit of controversy over the new addition to the Indian Premier Cricket League. Cheerleaders have been performing at the games to add a new element of entertainment but have been named as vulgar and obscene by some Indian politicians.
Mumbai police say they will be checking that the cheerleaders' performances do not violate entertainment licences.
The cheerleading girls, wearing short skirts and low-cut tops, have been hired from around the world to perform during the matches which are also being heavily endorsed by leading Bollywood stars.
They include cheerleaders from the Washington Redskins.
