    Well said !

    Yep good post. But I refuse to believe the cement line wasn't an intentional pun. Don't lie like Dhoni.

    IPL report's biggest revelation: A deliberate police cover up? | Firstpost

    The story is based on a page allegedly from the Kitty interrogation report prepared by G Sampath Kumar (Suprintendant of Police, Railways, Trichi) and mentions India captain MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina. "Kitty [the bookie’s alias] spoke of his knowledge about Vikram Agarwal,Gurunath Meiyappan and cricket players MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina and a few others, and another person in Rajasthan (suspected to be one of Jaipur brothers) in match-fixing," the report says. Dhoni would certainly qualify to be an important Indian player, as would Suresh Raina, at least in limited-overs games and the IPL in particular. The Mudgal Committee’s final report also mentions that six India players have been accused of collaborating with bookies. While the committee does does not name the players, saying at this stage the allegations are only allegations, it recommends all the allegations be investigated. The names have also been submitted to the Supreme Court in a sealed envelope. It now seems the report contained some potentially explosive information, which is perhaps why it was not shared with the Mudgal Committee. Dhoni certainly deserves the presumption of innocence but given how it appears he misled the Mudgal Committee on Meiyappan's role with CSK, it is clear there is something rotten in the state of Indian cricket. That's why it is time Dhoni made a clear and unambiguous statement to the public. It was something he should have done when the scandal first broke, but he chose instead to stay silent. It is now a case of better late than never. The Indian cricket fans who have showered him with their devotion deserve that much.

    Tamil Nadu police hint at foreign links in suspected IPL match fixing


    http://www.firstpost.com/sports/tami...ce=ref_article
    In his deposition before the Supreme Court-appointed Justice Mudgal IPL Probe Committee, excerpts of which is available with PTI, G Sampath Kumar, formerly Superintendent of Police, Q Branch (now SP, Railways, Tiruchi) had said that Vandana Vikram and Kitty (Uttam Jain alias Kitty, a Chennai based bookie) were suspected to be having strong UAE and Singapore links. The official made the deposition on January 19 in Bengalore. "I was summoned by the panel. After instructions from my chief, I deposed before it and told them all that I knew," Sampath Kumar told PTI. The Q Branch police initially investigated the case before it was transferred to the CB-CID. "As is known, both at least have a common friend in UAE who is probably using the number 971563545777." A detailed study of the numbers used by the persons "may substantiate or otherwise" the points raised above. The official lists many international phone numbers under the "probable abroad links; Australian links" sub-heading including the number 61403919733. Also, in his deposition the official says that Vikram and Kitty had carried out a "transaction" at a hotel in Chennai on the night of April 27, 2013. "Kitty spoke about this meeting at Q Branch CID office on 23 May 2013. He stated that in this meeting he came to know through Vikram that Meyappan said to Vikram that CSK player....... agreed to score 140 runs and to lose in the match against RR at Jaipur match on May 12 2013. This was communicated to Sanjay of Rajasthan over phone by Vikram," the deposition reads. The Supreme Court-appointed Justice Mudgal IPL Probe Committee on betting and match- fixing sought further investigations into the match between Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals held in May last year. The panel also accused Tamil Nadu Q Branch Police for not providing the copy of interrogation report on bookie Uttam Jain alias Kitty. "On the issue of whether Mr. Gurunath Meiyappan was involved in match fixing and spot fixing, the issue has not been investigated thoroughly by the ICC-ACSU, BCCI's ACU or the CB-CID of the Chennai Police even though some information was available for such an investigation to be conducted," the panel had said in its report.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Imagine if it came out that Suresh Raina is actually good at playing the short ball and he was just spot fixing all this time.

    It would probably be the biggest blow till date for cricket.The game's most popular player getting caught would just kill the game. Though I feel he is not stupid enough to fix games, if he did I do not see any probe going after him. Too big a fish.

    No its just how the world works in every other circumstance really.

    Wonder what India offered Pakistan to attempt. To get them inside. Probably a batsman who can average more than 35 who isn't old.

    Let's face it. The reason SLC isn't in favour of the proposal is that it means the BCCI wouldn't need to keep buying votes from them by renting out the Indian team for 50 JAMODIs a year. The status quo suited the SLC. Legislate increased share of the revenue to all the full member boards, make the SLC irrelevant to the BCCI in vote terms, and this means the SLC have to now actually pull up their pants and balance the books and take full responsibility for paying their players on time.

    where does SLC come into this? I certainly didnt say they are any better than BCCI but is that justification for corruption?

    Not only is Dhoni not coming out for press conferences, his CSK mate Ashwin who specialises in being a proxy for senior pros in pressers had to send out a proxy himself.

    Props for not coming out and attempting to lend some clarity guys

    Vindoo gave banned cricketer Sreesanth a clean chit. "I will say he is 100 per cent not guilty. Supposing I am Sreesanth, If I have to give away 14 runs in an over, I will give away two boundaries in the first two deliveries, only then can 14 runs be scored. But he gave only six runs off his first four deliveries — is there a guarantee that two boundaries will be scored off the last two balls?” he argued
