XtraTime News Desk: Indian Premier League season 11 has started with a bang. The cash rich league has been regarded as the most lucrative league because all the top players across the globe play in this league. Beside the top 8 teams, glamour and glitz, cheerleaders are also an attraction of IPL. We all know that behind every glowing thing, there is a dark truth which always stays behind the scene and IPL as well is no different. A few cheerleaders shared the inside news about IPL which is nothing but horrifying.

Some girls who are currently associated with cheerleading in IPP or worked there in past have shared their experience about what happens off the camera. Among them, one have shared her horrific experience and how she loves the whole thing. Many cases in any side majority of the cheer leaders are foreigners and there would be one or two girls who are from India and Racism has happened quite a few times in IPL.

"I hate the racism. Why is my team made up of 99% white girls? Why do Indians feel it's ok to dress white girls up in skimpy outfits but they won't let their fellow Indian women do it? It's messed up.”

The Prime Minister of India's main motto is 'Swachh Bharat', but most of the times the cheerleaders don't see any cleanliness in IPL."Conditions aren't the best. If I were back in the U.S., I'd be shocked at the state of our toilets, changing rooms, and on occasions our hotel rooms.”

“The first two games they were more like 1 star hotels. Cockroaches, I saw a rat and rat droppings, it was pretty bad. But we quickly spoke up and realized our manager for that trip had been skimping us and pocketing the money he was saving on a cheaper hotel. Now they're more like 3 stars. Perfectly comfortable but not over the top.”

A few cheerleaders shared their more pathetic experiences. “I am a feminist, and I admit that I am bothered. When I danced and cheered in the U.S. I felt less like that. If you were to watch female dancers on Broadway, regardless of their outfit, you probably wouldn't call them a sexual object. You'd call them a dancer. I went into this contract as a dancer, finding that I'm treated more as a sex object.”

“I try to be forgiving of human nature so I'm rolling with the punches. I also enjoy what I do regardless. But I wouldn't renew this contract for another year unless things changed."
