Ghosts past and present haunt Cricket.Hansie Cronje, a former South Africian cricketer would be familiar to most of the cricket buffs. Unfortunately, we would also remember him for his role in match fixing and him ban. His death anniversary was on 1st June 2002.
Ironically, on the same anniversary this year (1st June 2018). Mr. Arbaaz Khan, actor was summoned by police for questioning regarding his relations with a bookie Sonu Jalan/Malad. Today, he has confessed to betting on IPL matches.
Further more, yesterday (1st June 2018) again, it was reported that Cricket Australia quickly dismissed it's Head of Integrity after claims of match fixing involving two of its players named in a documentary by Al-Jazeera, aptly labelled as 'Cricket's Match fixers'.
It seems that even after 16 years, the noble gentleman's game of cricket is still haunted by the Ghosts both past and present.
India is considered the land of cricket, while we should be proud of this, we should also introspect on how much we are to be blamed also.
