    Match-Fixing Scandal

    woolmers murder is said to be linked with a big mafia i.e. dawood ibrahim is coming into all of this. I am all confused about all this match-fixing scandals and how everything works. Could someone here help me out on how much of cricket finances depend upon match-fixing? and do people here think that the ICC is involved in all of this?

    All rumour and innuendo so far. Wouldn't pay much attention to alot of the things said and printed.

    Well i tried to ignore all of this untill woolmers death and since then alot of debate have been going on on this, and with it alot has been exposed, so i cant seem to ignore all of whats said as i feel their is a big mafia leading cricket finances. maybe i am wrong but there are alot of controversies being exposed. Hansie Cronje case was completely ignored as soon as he died, that seems abit odd aswell doesnt it?

    Fair enough. At this point, I would back this to be mafia-related; by that, I mean underworld-related and specifically Dawood-related. Don't ask me for proof, btw.

    What has been exposed? List one piece of non-circumstantial evidence that bookies, mafia or match-fixing have been in play here.

    Don't completely count-out the rank outsider YP, though.

    Well i am not saying there has been a concrete proof on anything but i think match-fixing has played a mjor part in cricket through some years now, it had been quite for a long time but if woolmers death is found to be linked with mafia, then alot of things will come out of the closet. And at this moment u cant ignore all of this.

    It's actually easier to ignore conspiracy theories than you think.

    Haha, trying to keep my posts short as well, nothing worse then writing up a long post, only for the thread to be closed in the meantime.

    no its all bull ****ing...whenever something happens like a big uppset people go around saying it a fixed and all that ****...it wasn't...i dont think match fixing is still a big part of cricket...it was once but thats why we have anti-corruption now...they have been talks about match fixing in a lot of sports and stuff like that but unless there's any proof to it...it shouldn't be paid any attention to...its just that they want you to hear their stories/articles and ****..
