    Maurice Odumbe banned for 5 years

    Ex Kenyan captain Maurice Odumbe has been banned for five years for taking money from Indian bookmakers. At 35, this will almost certainly end his career and his reputation.

    I do question what does this have on the future of Kenyan cricket and their chances of getting Test status.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    RIP Fardin Qayyumi, a true legend of CW

    Uncalled for Raj123, stop it.

    It's great that they nailed Odumbe but it is a sad moment for Kenyan cricket, the class of their side will drop dramatically as a result.

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.

    Indeed . He was (or "is) a good cricketer . Just take an example of S>A . After Cronje , They lost atleast "something" ......
    I have said it before and now I am saying it again , Why not we get the root cause for this whole problem . Root cause is to shoot all the people who have given the money ... Alas !

    Why the hell if you were a bookmaker target somebody who plays for Kenya?

    In all due respect I would back South Australia or even Derbyshire to beat them (ok maybe not Derbyshire).

    Gambling is not only done upon winning or losing . There are also cases for example If a certain player gets out before 10 runs . There are many other examples too ... In Cronje's case , Gibbs was supposed to be out before 10 runs if I am not mistaken . Gibbs threw his bat at every thing just to give catch in the out field but unfortunately his catches were not held and when he passed 10 run mark then he went on to make 60 odd runs ......

    Gibbs actually said he had forgotten about the whole deal.

    It was probably because the deal didn't go ahead that Gibbs only got 6 months.

    Yes but he probably would have had 5 years to think about it.
