Media reports further suggest that 70 cricketers are closely monitored by the police and that few others may also be involved. But the BCCI denies that any other players involvement. But on basis ? What about the last ball “No ball’ bowled by by RP Singh which changed the winner of the match? It certainly raises similar doubts in the minds. Can DP or anti-corruption wings of BCCI or ICC confirm categorically to the people that RP Singh’s case or such doubtful looking cases have also been monitored and cleared for any wrong doing beyond any doubt ? It is no secret that RP Singh is close to influencial senior cricketers who in turn are close to the establishment. What is implied is whether the DP or the BCCI is selective in bringing out the cases depending upon the reach of the player ? Besides, if it is just a diversionary tactics of DP for the sake of troubled PC and the Rly minister under cloud or that it is a serious crackdown to punish match fixing offenders with jail term etc.. The doubt that comes to mind is based on past experience that nothing concrete would come out of DP’s expose except BCCI banning the players for certain period from playing cricket with DP failing to make much headway as happened for the case it broke about a decade ago.
The PC Neeraj Kumar had become very unpopular among people of Delhi over his inept handling of law and order situation in Delhi and they wanted him removed. Now with breaking of the story on match fixing the Delhi PC Neeraj Kumar seems to refurbish his image somewhat. It is also a good diversion from the ‘jobs for scam’ of the Rly minister Pawan Kr. Bansal in which now the the ‘caged parrot’ says there is no evidence against Mr. Bansal inspite of over reported 500 or so transcript where Bansals name reportedly figures extensively among conversation that includes his closest family members, top Rly board job aspirants, contractors… and reported to have taken place from his official residence and from his secretary’s chamber in Rail Bhavan !However based on similar phone transcripts I this case the three cricketers have been arrested! However it may be recalled that Delhi police are yet to file a charge sheet on similar match fixing story they broke about a decade ago !So it remains to be seen whether the DP is really serious to take their latest revelations on match fixing to logical conclusion or is it just a ploy to divert attention of people as stated above ?
How come no one is talking abt the match between CSK and MI where CSK were bowled out for 92 or so...and keeping in mind their current form dont u think that this was fixed and helped the MI in their quest to qualify? and i think that SRH will qualify for the playoffs so that there will be 2 teams from chennai...one a chennai based one and the other team's owner is from chennai
....in the same over, some other bookie has offered to pay the batsman Rs. 20 lakhs for not scoring more than 2 runs in the over. It will result in the bowler trying desparately to give away runs and the batsman equally desperate not to score runs!
Ajit Chandila & Ankeet Chavan - the poor guys were sturggling to find a place in National team! No way, they will take some money and do a joke! It is killing their career and shame to their state! So, I do not think these guys are involved in this match fixing game!
They were added to the list to make this fixing story more believable!
Moreover, our Delhi police are NOT that smart to find match fixing with evidence! Sree must have involved in the match fixing game but he many not be the only one! Why Delhi Police is not after big shots! That means, the match fixing game is yet another fixing game of Police too! There must be some motives behind! It may be revealed in the coming days! Ppl like Dhoni will be untouchable by the Delhi Police because he has strong backing from Top!
Why Delhi police is becoming a mere tool to finish poor players like Ajit Chandila & Ankeet Chavan! All 3 from the same team! What happened to other players who started this business in other teams! Delhi Police should be impartial, should bring truth! If they cannot be truthful to their job, they should not involve in this ug*y business!
