Ugly face of cricket

Cricket has been shamed yet again. This time it was a player trio from the neighbouring Pakistan that fell for easy money, walking into a trap laid by an undercover reporter in England.

While the episode has brought the ugly monster of match-fixing back into the centre of things, the expose has proved to be another bitter pill to swallow for the Pakistani public already plagued by floods and serial bombings.

Cricket fans worldwide, including Indian, have joined their Pakistani counterparts in condemning the spot-fixing allegations; the activity especially visible on the social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook.

Cricket lovers could perhaps take solace in Pakistan team manager Yawar Saeed's statement to the U.K. press: “A lot of good guys have come and gone, the game must go on, cricket will be played at its best.”
