- Sreesanth Sakshi Dhoni In IPL Match Fixing ? (ramanan50.wordpress.com)
it becomes difficult for one how to associate oneself with others.
You become friends with some one after you get to know them.
You know them after you befriend them!
This imbroglio lands people in a jam, for you do not know whom you are associated with.
As in the Sakshi Dhoni, wife of Indian cricket captain MS Dhoni.
News surfaced that one Sakshi Jhala is a close friend of Sakshi Dhoni.
Sreesanth gifted this girl a Blackberry at a party hosted by her when he visited her after a match recently.
As of now there seems to be no indication of either Sakshi Dhoni or MS Dhoni being linked to the spot fixing scam.
I think this angle will also be investigated by the Police.
Gurunath has been named as to have been in touch with Vindoo Singh, one of the middlemen for Bookies, who has been arrested.
Gurunath, for those who may not be aware, is the son-in law of Srinivasan, The BBCI President and the CSK Franchisee.
Consider the fact that Srinivasan’s daughter and wife of Gurumurthy, Rupa , is the executice Director of India cements, Srinivasa’s Flagship Company.
MS Dhoni is a director of India Cements,
MSD is likely to get his name dragged in the scam.
The truism that one has to be wary of people unless you know them is confirmed.
For no fault of theirs(as of now) Dhoni and his wife are likely to be sucked into this whirlpool of Sports, Drinks, Money and Girls!
Jaipur girl Sakshi Jhala, a lady friend of Sreesanth, has figured in the IPL spot fixing probe for the simple reason that she is close to tainted cricketer and was gifted a latest model of Blackberry mobile phone by him. The Delhi police, probing the spot fixing case, have seized the mobile phone which the cops feel Sreesanth bought with money earned from bookies.
But is Sreesanth-Jhala saga confined only to Blackberry? According to sources close to Jhala family, Sakshi Jhala is close to Sreesanth for last four years. She was introduced to Sreesanth by Sakshi Dhoni. Both Sakshis have been classmates at an institute in Aurangabad where they pursued a course in hotel management…
Daughter of Atul Jhala, a tour escort in luxury train Palace on Wheels of Rajasthan tourism development corporation, Sakshi Jhala was often seen with Sreesanth in post-match parties in Jaipur. However, she evaded spotlight as she was a lesser known personality that time. She was also seen watching a few matches along with Sakshi Dhoni in the stands of Sawai Man Singh (SMS) stadium in Jaipur without media glare…
Atul has clarified to the Delhi police that they hosted dinner for Sreesanth at their residence in C-scheme area on May 6. It was at this occasion that Sreesanth gifted a Blackberry Z-10 mobile phone to Sakshi Jhala and in return was gifted a poster of national animal – tiger.
What brought Delhi police to the doors of Jhala family is the fact that Sakshi Jhala’s mother runs a girls’ paying guest facility in Sodala area of the city. Now, Sakshi Jhala reportedly assists her mother in operating this facility.
“So far we have not touched that aspect in our probe. We are focused on role of bookies, cricketers and money exchange” said a member of Delhi police team who brought Sreesanth to Jaipur.
“We were not contacted by Delhi police about their visit here as such we are not supposed to probe role of paying guest facility. We will provide all possible help if Delhi police approaches us” said a senior official of Jaipur police commissionerate.
Sreesanth is reported to have disappeared from the SMS stadium as soon as a match ended early this month along with a lady who was sitting alongside Sakshi Dhoni. Now, the media reports are connecting Sreesanth’s disappearance with the dinner hosted at Jhala’s.
For now the Delhi cops seem to have given a clean chit to Jhalas as far as spot fixing is concerned. But the family is disturbed and Atul is calling his seniors offering clarifications.
Sreesanth has also been reported to have been in touch with a Bollywood casting director. His laptop and notebook points to his e-mail interactions with a suspected Bollywood casting director, who sent him pictures of models.
There was a new story yesterday on Headlines Today, 20 May 2013, that Sreesanth was making a Malayalam Film and was asked to select Models .
This could also be a reason for his interaction with women.
Let’s him the benefit of doubt, on this point.
But declaring ‘want as many women as possible?’
first and sought his help in luring Sreesanth,” an investigating officer said Sunday. “Jiju was made to call and tell him to come to the Trident, so he could be introduced to a female friend.” Minutes later, Sreesanth arrived at the Trident with a “woman on his arm”.Police also said that when Jiju called him, Sreesanth told him he was “resting at home”.
But it turned out he had been at the InterContinental Hotel with his “girlfriend”.
As the police moved in on him, an enraged Sreesanth warned them “not to touch” him….
Then money changes hands based on the outcome of the match.
This is not legalized.
The primary mover of the system, usually the Underworld,operates through persons who accept the bets called ‘Bookies‘
They get in touch with the players, offer them money and induce them to throw away the match,either by tactics or selection of players.
Apart from this,there is another system which is called ‘spot fixing‘

I have been feeling that, ever since the IPL6 betting story broke out with the arrest of Srresanth, Chandila and Chavan , the BCCI’s and the official broadcaster, Set Max, muted and in cases where there was a discussion it appeared as though it was a reluctant one.
This could not have been only due to the official coyness resulting from the fact that the’ enquiry was in progress’ line’.
I found some one who has similar suspicions.
It is curious to note the difference in speaking about the accused, including Sreesanth , for their role in the IPL6 match fixing.
Compare this with the earlier Cricket match fixing cases, say , the one involving Azharuddin and in another case of the Pakistani Cricketers.
This deafening silence is not limited to only BCCI.
What about the ICC?
Now news comes out that the Dawood Ibrahim’s group might have terrorized the cricketer into participating in the match fixing! The IPL spot-fixing controversy acquired a sinister edge on Saturday. Delhi Police sleuths investigating the crime said that D Company mobsters controlling the illegal betting operations were desperate to involve other young IPL players to join the spot-fixing racket.
According to transcripts of recorded phone conversations between bookies and gangsters, the criminals instructed bookies to threaten some young players with dire consequences if they refused to cooperate.”
Is this a trial run to exonerate the accused, step by step?
There is another track where Chhota Shakeel divulging that Dawood Ibrahim’is ‘not interested and never involved in cricket gambling”(!?)
There is also a report that Dawood Ibrahim gang has collected Rs 1200 crores from IPL 6 match fixing, so far!(jaimaharastra news)
First Ramiz Raja asked Rahul Dravid, the Royals captain, about the “tough couple of days”. Then, toss done and lost, Dravid is asked the same question by Alistair Campbell. Same answer – It’s been tough for everyone who follows the game. One does not expect, on the official channel, a full-fledged discussion on spot-fixing but to avoid the issue altogether is a blinkered policy that works only in societies where despotic regimes have cut off all access to the outside world. It merely confirms, for the critics, the impression that the IPL – or, at least, its coverage on the official channel – is less about the cricket and more about the entertainment…. t was like watching two parallel universes: one, in which the crisis was being discussed threadbare, with all its implications and interpretations, and another in which the crisis didn’t exist. (There was a third universe – the spectators in the Hyderabad stadium who, as our reporter Abhishek Purohit wrote, knew the facts but didn’t really care.).. Contrast this with ITV’s coverage of the IPL in the UK; there was a frank and free discussion on Thursday, the day the story broke, with the participants – including Aakash Chopra – at liberty to discuss the story after a briefing by lawyers…
