We saw a lot of Wrong Decisions in the Match between India and Sri Lanka recently due to which India lost the game. So, we blame the Umpires for wrong decisions. But, it was available the Tri Series and because India did not want it, it was not used. So somehow India paid the price for not accepting the URDS system. Read the rest of this entry

Sachin Tendulkar’s life can be summed up quite rightly in one sentence. From Tendulkar to Ton-dulkar to End-ulkar to Ton-dulkar again. Such has been his importance to the game that it had be quite an achievement to find an Indian cricketer who says that he has not been inspired by Tendulkar. For the past two decades, Sachin Tendulkar has quite successfully handled the magnanimous task of living upto the expectations of a billion people. Read the rest of this entry

Sharad Pawar sets to become the ICC Chief this week as he will take over the post from David Morgan. This is pointless. Before Morgan, we all know the fraud done by Jagmohan Dalmia. He was into illegal activities making money both as ICC and BCCI President. Later, he was sacked. Read the rest of this entry
The heading is usual and the topic is corruption. BCCI is the richest Board in Cricket.
I am here to cover the topic related to Indian cricket. It has been about 77 years since we’ve been in Cricket. The like of Parsi team that started in 1932 made India play cricket. Those times cricket was a time pass and leisure game.
How much cricket has changed since then. Indian cricket got to revolutionize when the likes of Kapil Dev’s team won the world cup in 1983 in England.
Since then cricket for India has changed a lot. Now cricket does not deserves to be played and watched. It was worth watching the black and white matches where they was not corruption. But in today’s word there is no cricket without the word corruption.
We Cricket fans watch cricket, go to stadiums wasting our money and our precious time. But its not worth it.
Who knows whats going behind the screens of cricket. The BCCI is the richest board in cricket and it is the board with most corruption.
This is mainly because in India cricket is involved with politics. This Leads to corruption.
Who knows this fact??
A match is being played and you watch the match live on TV wasting your time or go to stadium wasting your money.
But behind the screens, why not both playing teams have a deal or match fixing. In fact, The Board and most of the players( i don’t mean all players here ) get money by match fixing but we go to watch the setup or drama.
Cricket has now transfered into a money machine and worth not to be played.
We cannot forget the Sharjah incident where match fixing was held…
How do you think that BCCI became the richest board?
The answer is simple. It is involvement of Politics and Corruption.
I don’t understand why is cricket mixed with politics. Due to this cricket becomes a drama, corruption takes place, match fixing bribing.etc.etc.
It is clear that due to BCCI’s money power Umpire Steve Bucknor was sacked.
SO it is very happy news for BCCI who were making billions, with the power of Sharad Pawar becoming the President will now make trillions.
If they cancel a cricket tour abroad or in India they can loose upto $30 million. So money, money, money is the manta. Sharad Pawar is a Minister in Lok Sabha and why is he involved in cricket. Did he or his father play cricket???
Another involvement of Politics recently is that of The Kotla Fiasco, where Arun Jaitley was the president of DDCA. Why are Politicians coming into cricket?
Thats why this happens. Other countries have first class stadiums. These money hunger politicians are eating money and not making development to Cricket.
