Dhoni Suresh Raina Fixed IPL Match


The key man is President to be of ICC!

What can come out of this Probe and the Committee Report?

“A report of details revealed during the interrogation of a bookie, known by the name of ‘Kitty’, alias Uttham Jain, was submitted to the Committee by IPS Officer G Sampath Kumar.

The report alleges that more than half of the matches played during IPL 2013 could have been fixed and Indian Cricket team players MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina knew about the wrongdoings.

The report provides incriminating evidence suggesting that the match between Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals played on May 12, 2013 was FIXED.

Gavaskar’s Amoral Justification On IPL Match Fixing ‘Slip Is Showing’


His arguments run on two points.

1.His Contract with BCCI is for the ‘Exclusivity’, for his non-appearance in other Channels.

He says he was being paid by the BCCI from the Age of 12, when he started playing for Schools and the difference, he rues, is only the quantum of Money.

Mr.Gavaskar, nobody denied that you have been on contract with BCCI, nor your remuneration.

The issue, in case you chose to forget, I can not believe this for Gavaskar is highly cerebral and loquacious, is precisely that!

That of Conflict of interest.

When you work for someone, you seem to be working from the age of 12 for The BCCI, you can not take another assignment which is in conflict with what you are engaged in.That’s what exactly you have been doing scrupulously.

It is natural for you not to talk about the on-goings in IPL or BCCI.

That’s what is meant by your ‘Silence’, not anything else.

“There are reasons given about why I am ‘silent’, and the main reason is that my ‘silence’ has been bought by the TV contract that the BCCI has with me. Firstly, now that the BCCI has its own production house, it is well within its rights to contract those who they want to, just like other sports channels have contracted some other players to do commentary for them.

The reason why such contracts are done is to obtain exclusivity from the contracted entity so that he/ she does not appear on a rival channel and that is why good money is paid to the former players. That is also why I have not appeared on another TV channel excepting the news channel that has a contract with me.

Contract issue
If all those who are reporting on the episodes for their papers or TV channels cannot write for a rival paper or appear on another TV channel, then how can I appear on a news channel other than the one I’m contracted to? And since I don’t appear on the other channels, does it mean I am being silent?

Just like every player, I have been directly or indirectly contracted to BCCI since the age of 12, when I first played for Mumbai schools. I was then given one rupee per day if I remember correctly by the Mumbai Cricket Association. So throughout my playing career, I was under contract with the BCCI either directly or through its affiliate, the Mumbai Cricket Association. It is just that the quantum of the fees has changed from the 1 rupee that I first got when I played for Mumbai schools and that is thought as being the reason for my so called silence.
