    Match Fixing?

    How many of you think match fixing is true in todays time? I do, infact if there isn't one international match that hasnt been fixed for the last 6-7 years then you can change my name to whatever you want. Take todays India v Pakistan game for ex. ( I didn't make this thread because India lost if thats what you are thinking) The toss. By selecting to bat first when the whole world knew there was going to be dew(including ganguly) ganguly just told the world that he is the biggest idiot in the world. But if the match wasnt fixed, why would an idiot captain India?

    flashback to the TVS cup last year in the same venue. It was India vs. Australia in the finals. Australia batting first scored 234 (I think). India were bowled out for below 200.

    The decision to bat first was right. It is altogether another matter they can't even defend a score of 292.

    Was not the talk before the game that batting was the way to go on winning the toss?

    And did not India make 292 and start the innings pretty well?

    I don't think we would be seeing this thread if India just scraped a victory somehow...

    People, you're forgetting. This man is one of the world's foremost authorities on match fixing.

    (Sorry, that was a goal so wide, so open and so gaping that not even Kanu could miss it)

    This one even beats the Australian pitch whinging at Mumbai. I mean, not even Nibbs has used the old match-fixing line to explain any number of NZ Rugby's foul-ups. For crying out loud... India chased in the TVS Cup and lost. Ian Harvey had no problems at the death then (feel free to correct the bowler's name). If you can't defend 292 or bowl less than 23 wides in an innings, you don't deserve to win.

    And as for every game being fixed - CT final? You really think that kind of raw emotion can come from a fix? Every Bangladesh defeat?

    Pathetic. At best.

    It was a goal so gaping and wide, that I didn't even bother going for the shot...

    I'd like to think Match Fixing isn't a problem, but sometimes it can be hard to believe......

    We do put it down to just a collective group of individuals who all had an off day, and 99% of the time i reckon that is what happened.

    But it wouldn't suprise me in the slightest to discover some matches (that hadn't even been suggested may be fixed) turn out to have some money involved and the game is thrown. I'd like to be proven wrong.

    What has to be said is there is a lot of money in playing cricket. But there is even more money in gambling on cricket.

    BTW, i would have no idea about the recent Pak-Ind match. Haven't seen it, only saw Butt batted well.

    As opposed to bowling first and maybe conceding a a larger total?
