    A stench of match fixing in India vs South Africa ODI series !

    As we all know that South Africa won in the Test Series after that in a dead rubber match South Africa lost the Test match at that time if you closely observe when IPL auctions are over then immediately AB Devilers ruled out of first three ODI's and India won the first match now South Africa lost their captain Duplessis due to finger injury.As South Africa won the ODI series on Indian soil now its look like South Africa is sacrificing to India.Its almost like give and take. As we all know BCCI having minted money to change the results of the game according to their will that is why ICC has given No.1 Test Ranking to India even they Lost to South Africa in Test series.Knowledgeable members, please respond to the question

    I don't know whether this is correct. Generally, as far as my knowledge goes the fixing activity will be done outsiders mainly the people who conduct gambles about the victory for making a good profit. But BCCI and SACA will make an understanding of giving and taking. As far as I know, the ICC rankings will be a known concept. The method of deciding rakings the points they obtained will be a criterion but not they can give as they like. So by giving some money BCCI cannot manage the rankings of the nation. Anyhow, let me see the opinions of other members also.

    With regards to ICC team rankings, it depends on the performance of the team over the last 36-48 months. Each win is given a score of 1, 0.5 for a draw. A series win brings an additional point. Points are also allocated based on the strength of the opposition. Currently, India has a test ICC ranking of 1st with 121 points and South Africa test ranking is 2nd with 115 points. It is a complex calculation and I don't think it's easy to manipulate.

    If we think of conspiracy theories, then anything would be possible. But would national cricket team sacrifice the honor of the country for the sake of money? Would player shun the honor of being part of the national squad just to play the IPL? All these can be possible in IPL but not in a international test series where the country's name is at stake.

    How match Fixing controversies came to limelight.Clear fixing.... Where Devilliers playing polo with his finger injury why he is not coming to play in cricket ground as South African news channels are talking about this.

    While the author gave the details of purported to be match fixing, but what I feel that South Africa need not stoop to the level of match fixing and get humiliated by home crowd.

    The matter seems to be joking and believing also and there are chances of fixing too. But unless and until we have authenticated proof we cannot give credence to such happenings.

    Maybe in your point of view if BCCI did these fixing means, here the BCCI is not directly playing on the ground, it deals with the players with different contracts of money. All players cannot be bought for money, some of them playing with passion. They can't sell it for the piece of papers.

    At the Third Test Match after the toss had happened Virat Said South Africans are powerful in their own backyard and we have seen in the Last two test matches. Now, If Indians are so strong on their own Backyard why they buy 9 South African Players in IPL.

    The Second question is why Virat is patroling Boundary line in all One day matches why X-Capitan is marshaling the troops.If Dhoni is the best captain than Virat and he will be available for the Next World cup why can't Dhoni is the Captain of Indian Team.

    The equation is very simple. When India loses, then it is a real match. When India wins, that is due to match-fixing. Perhaps this is also true for the ongoing ODI series. Perhaps, the people of South Africa are all fools-so they are tolerating the match-fixing by their players in their own country.

    On Begining of Every Match if You observe important South African players are ruled out of the Series and now AB Devillers has been ruled out for T-20 series. Match Fixing at a higher level this is a true Give and Take series... BCCI and ICC match-fixing cricket at high level

    Bhushan, I must say that all your threads about Indian cricket team are based on some wrong perception. That is what, at least, I feel, after taking a stock of your threads on the topic. I remember a thread of yours where you asked why India does not win a match/ series abroad; now having clinched the series and doing exceptionally well all around, you say that the match was fixed. What are the criteria you adopt that leads you to such conclusions? What if Kohli fields in the boundary? How does it make a difference? It is okay to entertain complaints or suggestions but it should be rational and not on the basis of some misconceived perceptions, I suppose.

    Why is the discussion on this thread still continuing? It is more than 15 days old.

    Author's observations are worth noting. I also feel something wrong somewhere.

    Partha, the response at #626853 was not inadvertent. I had posted the response as an editor to make certain points, which I felt necessary, clear to the author. I wanted to lock the same after that but could not do so due to a power failure by the time I came back to the thread. The delay is regretted and your alertness is appreciated.
