I totally agree with this topic, from my point of view, match-fixing should be totally banned. This is the worst thing players do just for the little money and they are losing their respects. ICC should make a special squad for such types of activities to show they can easily be traced.

There are so many ways to show devotee to our nation. In that, cricket also one of the way to show devotion and respect to our country. It should be treated as a golden chance. But the cricketers who agreed for match-fixing should feel that they are surrendering their nation to become as slaves.

Hello friends.

In my perspective, in this world, everything is being treated like a business. Everyone wants to earn a lot of money. Here Education treated like a business, cricket treated like a business and who one is being match-fixing is cheating their self and their nation. All these decreased the talent of cricketers to buy them.

So the conclusion is that we have to finish this problem to increase the talent of our nation and ourself.

Thank you.

Yes, I think cricketers who are involved in match-fixing should be blamed for it. As cricket is the most popular sport in our country (India) it is like religion and it should be worshipped and not destroy the beauty of these sports.

In my opinion, cricketers play an important role in match-fixing although it's a very shameful act that they do not think of the respect of one's country before doing such a thing. Cricketers must be understood that they are at a place for representing one's nation and they should not ruin the sportsmanship of cricket. As they are paid well for their services and this kind of act led for a shame for one's country and nation. Authorities cannot control the bookies in fact it's the decision of the cricketer itself whether he wants to get linked through it or not. As a sportsman, this is very shameful incident for the spirit of cricket. One must always play with a sportsmanship and avoid this kind of things. If this goes on then people who loved cricket so much might avoid the game.

Yes, because Cricket is an addiction for some people who play the game excellently when you are addicted to something like cricket your mind doesn't gets occupied with other negative stuffs there are people who will attract you but we have to control ourselves and concentrate on the upcoming world cup rather then indulging yourself in the match fixing.

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.
