Everything is fair
in love, war and now cricket.
But then also Mike Procter went ahead with the whole case and handed out a penalty solely on the basis of the accusers allegations. But why did a seasoned professional like Mike Procter do something like this? If you dig a little deeper you'll find that Mike Procter was on a receiving end of the out lash when he failed to take any action against Yuvraj and was even made to apologize in front of everyone for his inaction. This led to a Catch-22 situation whereby he was constantly being rushed into taking stern actions against Indians.
But the question remains why is Mike Procter being manipulated and forced into things which he is not convinced about. Or is that Malcom Speed has got an agenda up his sleeves.
There is more than what meets the eye. The next president of ICC is slated to be from India . And may be Malcom Speed can not imagine that Sharad Pawar dethrones him to claim this post.
Let's not forget that cricket is a big Money Game, a Cash Cow which survives on betting, sponsors and audience. India went as a favorite in the match but by the second day of the Test there situation was not so comforting for Australia as there rates in the market were low. But even then millions came riding on Australia ¢s back on the second day, from all around the world.
As far as India is
concerned, things like this are not new, as India as well as other Asian
countries has borne the brunt of a ruthless Aussie spirit. Its high time
BCCI takes the onus of vindicating the Asian countries from the muck and
take it to a pedestal which they deserve. Pakistan , Sri Lanka and Bangladesh
should step out and stand together in this mammoth effort to redeem itself.
There won't be a moment in cricket history as favorable as this for the
BCCI to take the reigns of the world cricket. The moment is waiting and
would be gone soon. The moment is yours to claim.
I would like to know what
