I'd hope not.

The more thats published about the corruption in cricket in some countries and types of the game less trust and interest I have in the sport in those countries and forms of the game.

Its been rife in Test cricket and One day cricket for years... I see that Sri Lankans groundsmen are also now being investigated. There needs to be a zero chance policy on this... Do it once and you are out... No excuses... No "they were young and didn't know what they were doing" type stuff.

unfortunately in this PC world in which we live a life ban would be deemed against their human rights. However a 10 year ban from all levels of cricket would suffice.

As I understand it, the accusations are more about spot fixing than match fixing.
Also, three English players and two Australians have been named so the allegations are not just confined to one country.  Though when the instigators are tracked down, all roads do seem to lead to India.

As Terry has posted re the Notts game - women don't understand the game so don't know what to bet on!!!!!!!!!!

This article gives a very interesting focus on certain England players in a Test v India:
http://indianexpress.com/article/sports/...nd-happen/
In the broadcast programme, Chris Eaton, former Interpol agent who specialised in sports corruption and was once was the head of security for world football governing body FIFA says: “It’s very compelling evidence. So compelling that it is almost inevitably true.”
Let's hope he's wrong.

You can watch the actual programme about fixing here:

The section about alleged fixing involving England players is roughly 26 minutes in.

The more cricket gets turned into a game of tiddly winks where nobody really cares who they play for or who wins the more likely this is to occur. The county system is strong and self regulating I do worry about what is to come

The title of this thread refers to T20... But it should be remembered that test cricket has been hit too in some very high profile cases.

Indeed worryingly this story is currently circulating.... https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.teleg...ainst/amp/ and https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.aljaz...56017.html.

That's right, Warley.  Three England players are accused ; and it's not too difficult to identify them if you follow the articles.  Of course, they may well be totally innocent.  But there is a tendency to believe allegations against players from other countries and then totally to disbelieve any suggestions of fixing by "our boys".

I hope you don't mind me saying... Hopefully you are wrong and it isn't that bad Simon.....

True Terry... Hopefully it's a non story, but you do worry.

It has moved on a bit with Sri Lankas test team and groundsman https://www.news18.com/cricketnext/news/...61749.html

Is there betting in the women's game - because unless there is no player is going to be tempted
