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.


Sunil Gavaskar‘s justification of his ‘Silence’ on IPL Corruption,Match Fixing and On N.Srinivasan is bizarre to say the least.

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.

During the time that I played, I did speak up for the playing fraternity to ensure that their rights were looked after. I could have been dropped, but I did speak out for what I felt was right for my playing fraternity, and, believe me, playing for India was more important than any monetary inducement and yet I did not shy away from speaking my mind.”

When and what was the issue you spoke about that could have forced the BCCI drop you?

Exactly what happened between you and Bishen Singh Bedi, you and Kapil Dev are known to people who follow  not only your game but your  Game!

2.”It’s up to Srini
So whether Mr Srinivasan should stay or step aside while the probe committee does its job is a moral issue, and it is for him to take a call on that. That has been my stand, and since it is not one that resonates with most TV channels and the print media, I am accused of being silent.

It is for the BCCI and Mr Srinivasan to take a call on the issue facing Indian cricket today because it is a moral issue. It is not for me to advise them what to do as everybody else seems to be doing, and if that is taken as being bought then good luck to democracy in our country.’

By the same token, let the batsmen or bowler do what they do.

Why do you comment?

Because it is your job as a commentator.

Similarly is it not your responsibility as a Legendary Batsman of India, who is regarded as an Icon by Cricketers and people of this Country, to speak out against Corruption and Moral turpitude?

What exactly did you do in Lalith Modi’s case?

“The police agencies are doing their job so the criminality or otherwise will be established by them. As for the morality part, it is a free world and to each his own. What maybe immoral to one may not be immoral to another, and as long as it is within the framework of the laws that govern our country, nobody should be forced to say or do anything against their will is what I believe in.’

Yes, it is a Free country, every one has their opinions,

But the point is people show themselves when a Moral issue is involved.

Mr.Gavaskar,your slip is showing.

Prety Zinta Benami IPL? Bats For Lalith Modi

Preity Zinta.

Time for ICC to wake up or are they a Party?

Story:

In an interview to NDTV’s Barkha Dutt, actor Preity Zinta says there are no benami holdings or proxy owners in her IPL team, Kings XI. She also says that IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi should be given a fair trial (he stands accused of financial crimes) and asserts “of course IPL will survive this.”

Here’s the full transcript of the interview:

NDTV: For the past ten days the headlines of this country has been dominated  by what has been called as the IPL gate, but now many people are asking how this thing is going to end. Is this is all about cleaning up the governance of cricket? Is that what’s going to happen or is political shadow boxing of a kind overtaking the entire controversy? What about the morale of the owners, where do they stand? And what will happen to Lalit Modi and the game of cricket and brand of IPL? Joining us now in her first interview since this controversy erupted is co-owner of Kings XI Punjab and well known actor and an entrepreneur Preity Zinta. Preity, It must be terribly disturbing for people like yourselves to watch what’s happening to a brand that was once the most glamorous coveted brand in this country…

IPL Match Fixing,Money,Girls, Now Murder?

It has been reported that Inspector Badrish Dutt who had stumbled onto to the conversations  on IPL Match fixing, while listening to the tapped conversations to bust a Crime.

Badrish Dutt.
Inspector Badrish Dutt, who filed First FIR In IPL Match fixing

Wealth, Wine,Women….

Can Murder be far behind?

This aspect needs to be investigated, though this news is not getting the coverage it should have.

Story:

The sordid spot-fixing scandal could have been unraveled on May 11 itself had Inspector Badrish Dutt not died under mysterious circumstances on the intervening night of May 10 and 11. The raid was then aborted owing to the sad demise of Dutt, who was to lead the Special Cell team to Mumbai to carry out the operation.

Whether he was murdered or he committed suicide is mired in mystery even now.

It was Inspector Badrish Dutt, who intercepted a conversation between bookies and unidentified players about a specially devised ‘sign language’ meant for spot-fixing a month ago. An ace interceptor who had developed unmatched expertise in tracking and listening to conversations, Dutt brought it to the knowledge of his immediate superiors in the Special Cell.

It was a chance interception during an investigation pertaining to an organised crime. The people involved in the conversation were arguing over some payment. It later dawned on Dutt that it was in fact an important conversation involving spot-fixing in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) session. This was brought to the notice of Delhi Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar, himself a cricket aficionado, who gave the go-ahead and the operation was launched to bring the culprits to justice.

Interestingly, the match fixing scandal involving South African Captain Hansie Cronje too was busted after  Inspector Ishwar Singh posted with the Crime Branch tapped a conversation between an underworld operative hiding in a Gulf country and Kishan Kumar, the younger brother of T-Series owner late Gulshan Kumar. Inspector Dutt who was tasked to carry out arrests died before he could complete the task.

When asked whether there was any link behind the death of Inspector Dutt since he was the first Investigating Officer of the spot-fixing scandal, Delhi Police Commissioner denied the same. He said there was no connection between the two cases. However, sources said that there were many reasons to link Mumbai Underworld behind the shocking death of Dutt who was actively pursuing the leads till he died on the intervening night of May 10 and 11. He was given the official permission just a day before by the Delhi Police Commissioner to go ahead with the operation.

He was asked to lead the Special Cell team to Mumbai that was supposed to leave on the early hours of May 11. His colleagues were frantically trying to get in touch with him but he did not answer the calls. Worried over this strange happening, Dutt’s colleagues went to the second floor flat in Ardee City of Gurgaon’s Sector -52, where they found his and Geeta Sharma’s bodies.:

Contents of The FIR filed by Inspector Badrish Dutt on 9 May, 2013.

Contents of the FIR are as follows;

“Secret Information was received in the third week of April 2013 that certain members of the  underworld are involved in some sort of fixing of ongoing cricket matches of Indian Premium League with active participation of some unidentified conduits based in Delhi.

“It was also revealed that these conducts are contacting the cricket players who have been recently engaged by IPL sponsors at very high prices for the respective teams with a view to stage manage some matches for making windfall gains through several bookies, who facilitate illegal gambling in the sport.

“It had also been informed that players who will be ‘fixed’ will be paid huge amount to underperform during pre decided bowling over’s/spells. For these over(s) / spells huge amounts of money will be put on stake by bookies.

“Such acts will amount in cheating innocent and sports loving people of their hard earned money used in purchasing tickets.

“Large number of people watches the matches; not only in stadiums, purchasing costly tickets, but also across the globe through televisions and internet expecting it to be a fair play. The telecast of matches involve large sum of money through advertisements. As a result of such malpractices.

“ The innocent and sports loving people end up getting robbed of their precious time and money.

“In order to at upon this information technical and manual surveillance was deployed and so far.

“ It has come to my notice that suspects (match fixers and bookies) from Delhi, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Punjab etc. and some players participating in this Indian Premier League tournament have joined together to indulge in spot and match fixing.

“The above said group decides before a math as to which portion of the match will be ‘fixed’. Pre-decided signals will be given by the players to the bookies that will clearly visible in the stadium or on the television for initiating heavy betting.

“In this process, the ‘fixed’ player would get a huge amount as illegal gratification over and above his contractual valuealready committed to him by his franchisee.
These kinds of malpractice by the group cheat innocent cricket fans of their hard earned money.

“Under these circumstances a case under section 120B/420 IPC is made out. Kindly register a case and hand over the investigation to the undersigned. Date and time of occurrence: Since April 2013, place of Occurrence: Delhi and other parts of India. Date and time of handing Rukka: 09.05.2013 at 12.05 PM Sd/- English (Inspector Badrish Dutt) D-1/1067-PIS No. 16910014, NDR/Spl. Cell, Lodhi Colony. Sd/- English Insp. Pawan Kumar, Special Cell/NDR. On receipt of the complaint the FIR has been registered and the copy of the same will be sent to I.O. and senior officer for necessary action by dak. By / DO.”

    CSK management is now saying  that Gurunath is not connected with CSK.

    He has not signed the agreement with BCCI!

    Pawar wants Srinivasan out

    First it was Nationalist Congress Party chief Sharad Pawar who said that “if there is even an iota of honesty in Srinivasan, he should quit at BCCI president”. The NCP demanded Srinivasan’s immediate resignation from the BCCI.

    If owner involved in betting, team must be scrapped: Subrata Roy

    Later, speaking to Times Now channel, Sahara Group chief Subrata Roy said that if “the owner is involved in betting, then his/her IPL team should be scrapped.”

    Roy also said that so long as N Srinivasan remains the BCCI chief, the Sahara Group will not sponsor Team India.

    He demanded the termination of Srinivasan’s contract with BCCI. Roy’s Sahara Group had pulled out its team Pune Warriors India from IPL after BCCI decided to encash its bank guarantee following a financial dispute between the sports body and Sahara.

    “We had no choice but to quit IPL. The BCCI chief did not even bother to reply to our letter. His behaviour was arrogant and a person like Srinivasan does not deserve to run BCCI,” said Roy.
