IPL: Atmospherics Pretty Hostile

Readers Pulse

Considering the recent match fixing issue leading to arrest of RR team members, it’s time to take things seriously. Perhaps it’s the time that IPL should take a temporary break to resolve the matter rather than following relentless playing schedule. At the moment the atmospherics seems pretty hostile for playing cricket since things like suspicion, anger and cynicism are the over-riding emotions. However, looking at the BCCI, it seems that it simply wants to continue to be an opaque body, which is interested in handing huge money that comes in through this tournament.  The fact is, the top brass at the BCCI now needs to engage with law enforcement agencies simply to understand how deep rooted is this menace.  If other players and teams are under the scanner and what more could be public soon, no right thinking person will believe this begins and ends with Sreesanth, Chandila and Chavan? Indeed, it’s quite logical to assume that many players have been compromised. Surely other passages of play in other games have been similarly scripted over the last few weeks? Instead of acknowledging that stark possibility, India’s cricket bosses have stuck with the tired ‘few rotten apples and bad eggs’ argument and the standard ‘we will punish the guilty’ bravado.
