I applaud your honest and much needed analysis on the complete sham being perpetrated by the BCCI today. We must act now to stop these men from hijacking our national sport and destroying the reputation of this great game they have been tasked with stewarding.

No more a shock. Moral values and rule of law is consistantly taking new nadir everyday. People in power are taking cue from Politician run show. Everyone is looking for money - any way.

As consumers of the game,don't the spectators have the right to be
told in advance that the match may be fixed. A spectator spends his
time and money for the game. He should have the right to be warned
in advance of the game fixing. The ticket of a cricket match should
carry a warning,"Watching this game is at your risk - Beware of match
fixing. This is the least the organisers of a cricket match should
do. Players earn money,organisers earn money,and the real losers are
the spectators and the television viewers. They are gullible into
thinking that the players have sporting spirit,but in reality the
players have fixing spirit. Spectators and viewers are consumers of
the game.
