I think that there is no need to blame a cricketer for match fixing. As all of us know that nowadays some young cricketers are involved with the bookies for fixing.

At the starting point of any young cricketers life, they don't know 100% what is right and what is wrong. If he knows 100% then he doesn't need to take some advice from the seniors.

Actually, Bookies are eating the head of every young cricketer. They offered the young players a huge amount of money and that's why the young players used to enter into this trap.

The 1st person who should be blamed for Match Fixing is nothing but all system is responsible for this. After the System, the 2nd person who should be blamed for this is the bookies.

So, the conclusion is that we need to rectify our system.

Yes, undoubtedly the cricketers should be blamed. They are the ones who implement the plans of bookies. If found in any malpractices, the cricketer should be banned playing at international level for a lifetime. There might be some external bodies pressurising these cricketers but they should report to the anti-corruption bodies. Spectators in stadiums watch with full of passion and enthusiasm, others watch on TVs and mobile (nowadays). Match fixing means you are making publics love for the sport a JOKE.

Hi, friends.

In my opinion, the match fixing is not good, The cricketers are enjoying their life in that game they did like that means that is very bad, the BCCI will take the action strictly and those players will not to play in future means that good, why because that is one of the respectable game all Indian people's are mostly seen that game.

Cricketers are not completely the ones who should be blamed. Yes, they do play a role but we should blame those who use them as puppets in order to do such a thing which is against taking the game as sporting one. As there are people who will pay for such match-fixing to the players more than what they will earn by doing a fair play in cricket they as humans will get attracted to such an offer. But if the cricketers are more honest enough they wouldn't support such an act. So I think both the cricketers as well as the main people behind this illegal act is equally responsible and there is no point of blaming only the cricketers.

Hi, this is Prahlad.

According to my opinion, the BCCI is responsible for match fixing games. Imagine a bookie is allowed to meet players either in dress room or hotels where they are staying. Without knowledge of officials of BCCI how can a bookie can enter into. Please think in that way also.

Hello, I believe cricketers are not to be blamed for match fixing even though they are on the wrong side because despite cricketers having enough security and being continuously covered by media, bookies are able to approach the players and negotiate with them. According to me, the higher officials may be participating in this activity from the back end and maybe players are threatened by them and leaving no option for the players.

According to me, everyone from a match fixing driver (bookie) to the cricketers, team officials and even refrees, who involve themselves in these fixing practices should be blamed.

But cricketers should be blamed first because they are the only and only acting members of the game, they had to play and if they do not get involved then nothing can be prefixed and these activities will turn towards abolishing stage but sometimes as we have seen that cricketers do not even report about the officials or other team members involved even if they know the facts and therefore they should be blamed.

Yes, to a larger extent cricketers are to be blamed for match fixing and the same time the committee managing these players should not be spared.

These cricketers if they give their best on the field will surely get individual and team success and money will flow, at the same time they will be revered. Despite knowing all these, they involve themselves in these malpractices keeping aside their ethics and values and end up losing their career.

At the same time, the management should realise that these cricketers are on national duty and they should abide by the rules and stay within the discipline, at least when they are on duty. They should make sure the cricketers don`t meet anyone other than their family, team, and staffs when on duty.

Hey, guys thanks for providing your good thaughts.

According to my view match fixing should be completely banned as it affects the culture of cricket as well as it degrades the value of cricket. Match-fixing has become a source of income and entertainment for fixers. A good player plays for their nations as well as for their passion but due to match fixing good players fail to show their patriotism. It should be completely banned and people who die this practice should be sent to jail and the players involved in this should be punished so no one can think over it again. Before the selection of new players, they should undergo with some skill test which involves their patience their loyalty and the true sportsmanship.

Cricket is the most liked and popular game after football. The players playing in the team selected based on their hard work and their passion for the cricket should remain forever. If Sachin Tendulkar or Virat Kohli plays only for money then they don't have records for Indian Cricket team. The Fixing is only from the dealers who vanishing the player with their weak points as their strength. If the dealers are eradicated then the fixing is not a matter at all.

There is no doubt they have quality and they are the real property of country.

Ya of course in my opinion match fixing is a big crime and those who do this are the criminals. What I mean to say is that match fixing should be banned and those who do it should be kept in jail for at-least 10 years.

They have struggled for years to gain a place in the team, they stood as the representatives of a historic nation. What more do they need to fell proud of themselves?

In my view, match-fixing is something like selling our mother to someone as a slave. It's really shame upon their part. Because of such stupid malefactors, the entire team has to face severe criticism & bear many doubtful questions which pain the innocents.

Those who do match fixing should be treated as terrorists. On seeing the way, they are being humiliated, no other player should at-least think of match fixing. The BCCI should carefully watch the players and remove if there are any weeds in the team.

Yes, the cricketers and only the cricketers have to be blamed for match fixing because they are doing this only for money. In any sports you have to stick to your ethics and these cricketers involved in fixing are compromising with their ethics, maligning their teams image also the image of that particular sports.

They must report it to higher authorities and help them in catching the fixers. If any cricketer is found guilty in match fixing, a very severe punishment must be given to him so that it gives a strong message to the young cricketers and they feel afraid even to think about match fixing.

As per my point of view,

Cricket is a great game which is played by the players with dedication for their nation. More over it includes each individual players passion and commitment for the game from their childhood. The Players who are having that much passion and well played players are selected for the national team by their cricket board of council.

So I'm trying to say that the players can't be blamed for involving in spot fixing because their aim is to present victory in each and every game to its nation to prove their patriotism which unites a nation. The players won't play the game for money but for patriotism and passion.

Hence its the dealers who tries to trap some excellent players into the fixing by their cunning mind. They are to be banned, because sometimes players are threatened by their personal issues. At that time they are pushed to the corner of fixing by the dealers.

So the ICC should take appropriate action to prohibit fixing and dealers.

Hello friends,

This is Chaitanya here, match fixing, It is the sin of not only the players involved but also the persons behind the game. The underworld is also involving in this fraud, they treat it as a business, they commit the people who are watching the game like fools. I am a heart core fan of Indian team. But, I am totally dissatisfied with the team we see last year IPL, that too the cricketers are belongs to our country.

So the ICC takes this seriously and try to form a separate tam for the anti match-fixing. And also don't provide the bail for those persons who are involved in this crime. I hope the future games should be genuine.

First of all thanks for creating this topic, because its been a hot topic nowadays. On this day a popular cricket team has been disqualified for their irresponsible match fixing case. Before selecting the players should examined to counsel. They don't have patriotism.

In INDIA people follow the game so deeply and this match fixing is one kind of cheating to those people and country. If one person fixing the match entire team have to suffer, because they can't concentrate on their future games and this decrease the level of performance.

So the people who is in cricket field will know what is the right thing to do for nation and if they doing the thing like match-fixing for money they should be punished and they have to be taken out from the cricket field and that opportunity has to given to the next younger generations, so that everyone should have a fear about such a things and this match fixing will also reduce.

Cricketers are to blame and also not to blame in this situation. Each cricketer must think about the reputation of the country and his family before entering into the world of match fixing. But if they are threatened by the bookies they usually have no choice but to give in. That's what the police and the investigative agencies are there for. They can loge a complain against the bookies but they're too scared to do it because they think too much about what will happen afterwards, not realizing that they will always have the support of the their huge fan following whatever they do - only if it is in the interests of the country, the team and the citizens of the country. I would suggest that the coming generation try to pull out the ills of the society by it's roots to prevent any further humiliation or embarrassment.

Though match fixing is not a good deed, but its not a crime.

All human beings commit mistakes and so do cricketers. Many of them are pressurized and threatened by bookies. Unfortunately some of the cricketers fall prey to these bookies.

A good investigation team should be appointed to look into the case and if the players are found guilty there should be a life ban on them but they should not be punished because cricket is just a game and fixing is not such a dangerous crime. The life ban is enough and more than even a death sentence for a cricketer.

To conclude I must say to a certain extent cricketers are to be blamed for match fixing but if there is a good system to keep track on them and bookies can be arrested before the fixing takes place, it will be better for that player and moreover for the country.

They are not god who cannot commit mistakes. They have learned nothing but the cricket so we can enjoy at our stressed sitting in our AC rooms, watching them playing, jumping like hell and all that. All we need to blame is the system who keep check on spot fixing. They can spot the spot fixing after it happens but can, t stop before the scene. If they can't track the bookies then they should handover there job to someone else. Anyone can be distracted from his job.

Hello friends,

According to my point of view it is yes. Cricketers are to be blamed for the match fixing because it does not matter who is behind the scene but it is players who commit mistakes on the field deliberately for the sake of money and betrays our trusts and also defames the name of our country on the international level. A player can prevent the match fixing to occur if he is determined to not let it happen by letting it know to higher authority if any other player from the opposite team or any other persons from outside approaches him for doing so which is unacceptable. Cricketers who come under the purview of match fixing must be forced to resign from all forms of the cricket and strict penalty and punishment must be enforced to stop these kinds of activities to happen in future.

Hello friends,

Yes cricketers is the only one who is responsible for match fixing, NOBODY CAN FORCE YOU TO DO EVIL, UNTIL YOU HAVE TRAPPED THE EVIL INSIDE YOU, once that evil comes out declination takes place, and the evil is "greed". When the greed of players comes before his game then outsider can easily influence him and buy him. So bookies are not the one to be blamed, its the player who are encouraging them and thus polluting the purity of game.

I saw KAPIL DEV was crying in the media, cause he was also blamed for fixing but later allegation were taken back and he resigned from the position of coach. Why all this took place just because of few pranks who were involved in fixing, they not only led the names of their team down but also of their family and their country.

Match fixing is an heinous offence performed by the players of any team. Be it match fixing or spot fixing, its after effects on the game are devastating and can lead to complete downfall of the game. People watch the match because of the curiosity of what will happen next, it is this sense of curious excitement that attracts and hold them to the game but if this authenticity is lost then it is obvious that the game will soon lose its pride and people's interest. Therefore players involving in such activities must be life banned as such crimes have an everlasting influence on the game's credibility.

Match fixing is against the spirit of the game. Is just an give up before the start of play. Its the thing done for the money. As players struggle a lot to make their place in the team. Person watching the TV expecting a great game but due to such thing faith & belief on the game will be lost. Maturity of the player must be high while he is representing his own country. Player must be banned who is involved in fixing.

Bookies are not the matter. As the bookie approaches the player the player should bang at him. That is the most initial step to be taken by the player if he is truly playing for the (his) country. Players should should not fall into the web of money offered by bookie. If the players devotional towards the game then there will be no raising for bookies, this type of business will not be developed.

Yeah they must be banned. They are there to provide the pride to country and they are representing the country for the sport. While people do like this it affect the sport a lot. For a one person doing like this it affect the entire sport. So should be banned and they also be fined. Because they are doing this only for money.

Sometimes it happens that cricketers are forced to do match fixing and it is not always for the lure of money. So first of all they must be asked about being forced from bookies. And then the related conclusion must be made.

Of course those who fixes match are criminals as they did a crime called fraud against audience. But punishment for this should be limited. As fraud is not a very big crime, so player should not be banned for his entire life. Sports is for entertainment and if a person does not follow the rules, he is actually cutting himself from this industry. He definitely pays for his activity whether or not, he is found guilty.

Management should look into the matter with care and stop possibilities of any such activities as it hampers industry but extent of punishment should be limited.

Why not ? Even though they are getting millions , even though they have immense fans' support , they are still hungry . I can't understand them . They have struggled for years to gain a place in the team , they stood as the representatives of a historic nation . What more do they need to fell proud of themselves?

In my view , Match - fixing is something like selling our mother to someone as a slave. It's really shame upon their part . Because of such stupid malefactors , the entire team has to face severe criticism & bear many doubtful questions which pain the innocents.

Those who do Match Fixing should be treated as terrorists . On seeing the way , they are being humiliated , no other player should at-least think of Match Fixing.The BCCI should carefully watch the players and remove if there are any weeds in the team .
