Match Fixing Trio Jailed

November 3, 2011

Imran Khan explained it in straight forward words.

“It is painful to listen (to) the news as a former Pakistan cricketer and I feel really sorry for their families,In a way I also feel sorry for these cricketers because they are from Pakistan where there are massive corruption cases against president (Asif Zardari) and they must have thought crime pays”.

Pakistan has great hopes from Imran Khan, who is the head of political party, Tehrek-e-Insaf (movement for justice).

Corruption in Pakistan

November 3, 2011

Corruption has became part our every day life in Pakistan. Life without corruption seems a mad man’s dream. Corrupt officials, politicians and members of armed forces living a luxurious lives without a hint of shame of any sort. Ordinary Pakistanis do not even realize that; the corruption is a punishable offense.

In a country, where murders get away with any sort of punishment, then corruption is a lot lesser offense. Currently, in Pakistan, there is so much talk going on print and other media about three match fixers. General media hosts / writers and population seems to be apologetic towards the trio.

My friends have shown their amazement on the prospects of seven years jail term of accused corrupt cricket players. It seems too harsh for them. A strict punishment for the trio would really help Pakistanis the ‘power of law’ and importance of having a free judiciary system, not only for cricket but on a much larger scale.

After an apologetic statement by Amir was read , the Judge of the case Mr Justice Cooke said : “An inference that could be drawn is that this was such a widespread activity in the team that a newcomer could be infected with the activity, as this was a norm.” This statement was given for Pakistan Cricket team, unfortunately, I can apply this to a lot of situations in this country of mine.

Spot Fixing

November 2, 2011

Amir, Asif and Butt have became well known names, not for good reasons, to most cricketing nations and even in few countries where cricket isn’t a major sport. I am sitting in Singapore Changi Airport, and this news has been played over and over on the BBC news. I am desensitized of this match fixing saga, just because, in my views, it will not change anything in cricketing world.

As the court in London, heard that betting is 40-50 Billion pound business in India. Punishing three players, who were pawns of a lot bigger racket will not effect anything. The only lesson, players will take out of this issue, is to be extra vigilant. I would like these three idiots to spend sometime behind the bar.

, match fixing in cricket has became 50 billion dollar
