    now new speculations about the tri-series being match-fixed, simply ridiculous.

    Why ? Because you dont think its possible ?

    In a country where one so clearly implicated as was Azharuddin is at best not played again but continues to be a page 3 celebrity, what do you expect ?

    Where is the shame, let alone punishment that will prove a deterrent, if anything will.

    In a country where if you have your daughter marrying out of love but out of caste or religion, the family will leave the village or town and live in anonymity if not commit mass suicide but where such scoundrels are feted and still attend all major events as invitees, what do you expect ?

    I am not writing this to decry my country. I am writing this in deep anguish since i love my homeland and am ashamed of what goes on.

    This is not to say that the rumours are proven just that it is very much in the realms of possibility.

    Dear SJS,speaking the bitter truth about the Indo-Pak region's pityable condition is the biggest crime in these respective countries.Don't u know that?Things r little better in Pakistan but not very different than India.Whenever I try to tell people the bitter & shameful facts,they think that I've got mad or drunk.And if u try to tell these facts in public,u might be killed for speaking truth.Truth is the biggest crime here.So,before becoming a criminal next time,think a 100 times.Whenever I tell people that Akram was a match fixer,they say that we cannot bear the insult of our hero.And some people ask me,r u an Indian?

    Well, this may turn out to be true, but TOI are not the most reliable source.

    Tri Series May Have Been fixed - ICC

    I doubt if they will risk a front page headline and name ICC officials without any reason. Times of India is not a rag it is one of the world's oldest English Daily's and India's most prestigious.

    Times of India is a tabloid. Anyone who calls it a newspaper doesn't know the difference between a newspaper and a tabloid. World's oldest daily my $$$. India's most prestigious Newspaper, my foot !!

    So Fleming cant' rest his main players in a useless match ? If India's had won this final, same Tabloid of India would have sang hosannas in praise of Sehwag, Dhoni etc. Why cant we give credit to NZ for a superb win ? They batted/bowled/fielded better than India and deserved to win. It is really unfair for NZ team and players.

    I am sick of people badmouthing India at every given opportunity. At least in India Azhar is banned as opposed to Waugh/Warne/Gibbs/Boje/Stewart etc. Before picking out on India, they should have read about Cronje who was given a 200,000 pound media contract after matchfixing and Cronje was not an Indian. Have you heard of OJ simpson, Mohammade al Fayed etc ?

    And using this thread to post your nonsense about social issue(which is a gross generalization anyway) is what makes you an opportunist, where you just want an opportunity to badmouth India. Social problems are there in every country and India is no exception, we are gettign better slowly but we are.

    Times of India online version is NOTHING like its on print version. Its basically like the Wall Street Journal running The Enquirer as its online version.

    India's low par performance is a reason for the investigations? Maybe we're just not good?
