Spot-Fixing Leaves A Stain




Match-fixing and spot-fixing is the deadly duo that can instantly cash players’ lockers or put them behind lockers. It has unfortunately being going on ever since the sport gained popularity, however with the number of successful CCTV operations, the hideous feat has been brought out to the public eyes and helped reduced the black matter to a great deal. This sting operation however has really stung the players!

IPL 2012: Spot-fixing leaves a stain

IPL 2012: Spot-fixing leaves a stain

In a TV sting which included reporters acting like bookies who came into contact with 5 players playing in this season’s IPL 5, offered to pay them a boatload of money in exchange for a ‘fair’ black deal. They agreed to throw no balls, and wides in exchange for a huge sum of money, of course being unaware that the “bookies” were actually TV reporters with their hidden cameras.

The footage instantly caught fire on television a couple days ago and the matter was taken seriously by the official authorities and in a country where people cry and clap all for their cricket deities, this is far beyond fraud.

The BCCI president said that the matter would be taken seriously and any such kind of behavior would not be tolerated and thankfully he stood by his words. The players now face suspension and until that time, they will not be able to play any of the matches. The whole of the country knows that a suspension of even a year means ban for lifetime because there are lines and lines of young boys who are ready to take their place, leave aside the tedious court hearings.

The players that were involved in the case are:

  1. T.P.Sudhindra
  2. Amit Yadav
  3. Shalabh Srivastav
  4. Abhinav Bali
  5. Mohnish Mishra

The whole sting operation has been repeatedly showing on television and there stands no ground for statements such as “my voice has been fabricated” or “that isn’t me”. The clear, recorded, real footage is open for the world to see and no lies, hopefully, will rescue them.

For now, inquiries have been ordered and proceedings are on their way. But it comes as a great disappointment to those people who leave their work, their leisure, their Sunday, their lives, just so they can sweat in those stands and stand up to cheer their favorite player.

It’s easy to buy fake Chinese toys or roll our eyes on unworthy politicians but cricket is one thing we just won’t compromise for.
