Cricket is a gentlemen’s game and is getting increasingly popular and reaching to almost one third of the World’s whole population. The Sport betting and spot- fixing prevalent and so rampant can only be stopped in its tracks by International Cricket Committee ( ICC) and its participating member nations co-operation’s to have a common desire to eradicate cricket betting and spot fixing between the Participating teams of each nation, local governing national cricket body have a honest and ethical desire to flourish the game of the cricket across the nations . The participation of any individual or an organization in Cricket betting and spot fixing should be classified as a illegal and punishable offence and lead to the imprisonment.
What International Cricket Council (ICC) and its president is doing about the giant Sport betting syndicate active across the globe to use multi billion dollar profits coming out of global earned through the cricket and spot- fixing ?
I am surprised the role of ICC about it . I am surprised that although they like to stop the spread of the cricket betting and spot fixing but do not have a consistent charter about the way it can be stopped.
Luckily Cricket Betting and Spot- Fixing is a illegal and unlawful activity in India , Pakistan, Sri Lanka , Bangla Desh , West Indies, South Africa and Kenya.
Do you think that great cricket legends who help made this game great and are loved and appreciated all over the Would like the betting in cricket and spot- fixing ?
Let ICC appoint a panel of juries chosen among the illustrious Australians Steve Waugh & Dennis Lily, British great Geoffrey Boycott & Sir Ian Botham , Indian greats Sachin Tendulkar & Kapil Dev, West Indies King Vivian Richards & Andy Roberts , Pakistani great Javed Miandad & Imran Khan , South African great Graeme Smith & Alan Donald, Sri Lankan Greats Sanath Jaya Surya & Murlidharan.
Betting in Cricket and Spot- fixing should be illegal. Leave cricket for player s and spectators. Cricket is life for so many people around the World more than half of the population follows it and loves it.
What ICC can do that if a country wants to play cricket officially then its nationals government should make betting on cricket games results to be illegal and punishable offense. If a national cricket board cannot guarantee of betting on cricket and spot- fixing happening in their respective countries , then ICC should not allow the official game of cricket not be recognized in that country and no ICC approved team should visit them.
Cricket Betting and spot fixing is a virus which is creating havoc by eating like termite the very foundations of the cricket game in nations which has allowed it to flourish like England and Australia. However, to my sympathy England Cricket Board ( ECB) who want to eradicate participation of the players in cricket betting and spot fixing. But they are powerless as British Government has already bowed to the pressure and greed of the betting syndicate to operate in their country and allow the game of cricket to get infected and eventually die . The cricket county games are suffering as a result of this and ECB is adamant whether to have IPL Style 20-20 championship. But they could not do it yet due to parameters out of their jurisdiction like The British Government bowing to the Betting Syndicates muscle and allowing rampant betting in Cricket and spot fixing.
On the other hand in India, the Indian Government did not bow to the Betting Syndicates muscle and declared it illegal. BCCI became the main beneficiary of good policy of the Indian Government. The teams of Pakistan has been rocked by the betting in Cricket and spot fixing on so many occasions and as a result great players careers have be halted before their time and have been made scapegoats at the expense of Sports Betting Syndicates
Sports Betting Syndicate wants to create an atmosphere of greed by betting on the games and spot fixing by keeping odds in their favour legally or illegally. This sport betting in the cricket is wide spread in the very fabric of the one of the most popular games like cricket. The success of cricket like Indian Premier League (IPL) , Australian Big Bash, Bangla Desh 20-20 has attracted sports betting syndicates globally to suck the money from the very root s of the cricket teams around the world and targeting the key players whose information plays the result of the betting. However, they were worried about the results of the Sachin Tendulkar as a player and would not like to speculate on his scoring of runs unless he was out.
This is the duty of England Cricket Board ( ECB) to safeguard the visiting player on their land rather set up the best players of the visiting cricket team ( Mohammad Asif , Salmon Butt Etc) and organize it as a drama with British Police agents and offer the bribes in the first place and break the law through their agents and unlawfully target the best players of the visiting teams and put them behind the bars.
British police has set up the giving bribe to the players and British Government runs the legal spot fixing. No reasonable government even Indian Government will never allow whatever may be the profit from the punters however, they are under increasing pressures from betting syndicates. The targeting of visiting teams key player is n0t the solution rather host nation has to provide security to the visiting teams players and keeping them away from the clutches of the Sport Gambling thugs and their hoons not create a drama like British Police , England Cricket Board (ECB) and British Judiciary under the British Government which supports and allows Cricket Betting and Spot Fixing.
Spot fixing should be illegal. Batting Syndicate go to hell. Leave cricket for player s and spectators. Cricket is life for so many people around the World more than half of the population follows it and loves it.

In conclusion, ethical view will prevail . Betting in Cricket and Spot fixing should be illegal and punishable offense. Lets leave the great game of cricket for players and spectators to enjoy. Cricket is life for so many people around the World more than half of the population follows it and loves it.

May 3, 2012

Comments: 7 | Text size: A | A Mohammad Asif, the Pakistan fast bowler, has been released from jail after completing half of his one-year sentence for spot-fixing, his lawyers said. He was freed from Canterbury Prison in southeast England on Thursday morning.

Asif, 29, was found guilty at Southwark Crown Court in November 2011 of conspiracy to cheat and conspiracy to accept corrupt payments over deliberate no-balls bowled during the Lord’s Test between Pakistan and England in August 2010. He is still under a seven-year ban (the last two years of which are suspended) imposed by an ICC tribunal in February last year.

His team-mates Salman Butt and Mohammad Amir were also found guilty. While Asif and Butt denied the charges against them in court Amir, who was released in February after serving half of a six-month sentence, pleaded guilty. Butt, who is currently serving a 30-month jail sentence, was banned for ten years (with five suspended), while Amir got five years.

Mazhar Majeed, the agent who was accused of setting up the deal that was uncovered by a newspaper sting operation, was imprisoned for 32 months.
