Look Back at the 2007 Cricket Scandal with Pakistan
connections; Punters can draw own conclusions
death of Pakistan coach Bob Woolmer has cast the blowtorch
on corruption in professional cricket, with rumours
circuiting of a strong link to the world of illegal
to apartheid-era South Africa, perennial ball-tampering
rows, the fallout from The Poms boycott of Zimbabwe
and the Bodyline series of the early 1930s all generated
tons of news media.

the ongoing scandal of match fixing.

Conspiracy theories that he was silenced as he about
to lift the lid on the world of match rigging have
spread far and wide.
go to 2000. Before then, Pakistan batsman Salim Malik's
reputation was as an elegant stroke-player with such
spirit that on one occasion he played with a broken
2000, Malik was a cricketing stain, banned for life
for his part in (alleged) match fixing.
the centre of cricketing's worst problem is the status
of gambling in the region. Without the option of legitimate
betting, gamblers in cricket-mad South Asia call on
the services of bookmakers. Those bookmakers are sometimes
in the back pockets of ... um, the Underworld!
the sums of money involved are frigging huge.
Condon, former head of the Metropolitan Police and
now the head of the International Cricket Council's
corruption unit, says up to $1bn can be gambled globally
on a single one-day international such as a key World
Cup game. Yep, you read correctly punter.
of that cash will pass through the t bookmakers in
places like Mumbai and Karachi, and the temptation
to steer the odds in their favour is huge.

succumb to such a thing.
Malik's eventful downfall came because Aussie stars
Shane Warne, Tim May and Mark Waugh accused him of
offering them money to play badly during a tour of
Pakistan in 1994.
Warne and Mr Waugh eventually had their own run-ins
with the cricket bosses after it emerged they had
accepted money from an Indian bookmaker in exchange
for info during the tour to Sri Lanka in the same
it was the investigation, led by Justice Malik Muhammad
Qayyum, into the numerous allegations against Malik
that was to provide a real blow to the balls of cricket.
Justice Qayyum's report Malik and fast bowler Ata-ur
Rehman were banned for life. He recommended six other
players should be fined, including Inzamam-ul-Haq,
Waqar Younis and Wasim Akram.
Dec 2000, the Board of Control for Cricket in India
completed its investigation of allegations of match
fixing by handing life bans to former team captain
and flamboyant batsman Mohammad Azharuddin and fellow
test star Ajay Sharma.
Manoj Prabhakar and batsman Ajay Jadeja were suspended
for five years.
perhaps the greatest black mark in the history of
the sport came on 7 April 2000 when Delhi police released
transcripts of phone conversations between South African
captain Hansie Cronje and businessman Sanjay Chawla.

succumb to such a thing. It beggars belief,"
within four days, Cronje had made a 3am call to Ali
Bacher, the head of South African cricket, to admit
to receiving money from a bookmaker for forecasting.
He was sacked as captain.
The Guardian, explained up the mood of the time when
it used the headline "We can no longer say it's
not cricket". The Times simply said "Cronje
and cricket stare into abyss".
June, Judge Erwin King started South Africa's investigation
into Cronje's corruption and the all-rounder soon
admitted taking money to ask team-mates to play badly.
He denied ever fixing or throwing a match.

of involvement with bookies.

from international cricket, while Cronje received
a lifetime ban. In June 2002 he died in an air crash.

Alec Stewart of accepting cash for info, something
he vehemently denied. He was later cleared by the

same year also saw the appointment of Condon as chief
corruption investigator and he has become one of the
key figures in the fight against match-fixing.
May 2001, his first report included allegations of
murder, kidnap and drug use and condemned a climate
of "silence, apathy, ignorance and fear"
in the once great game of cricket. He traced match
fixing back to the 1970s.
to the House of Lords recently he said the rise of
more varied methods of gambling, such as spread betting
had made the opportunities for corruption more diverse
was no need now for a risky proposition, like attempting
to corrupt a whole team. Instead, the Byzantine array
of options in spread betting means bookmakers only
need to "GET" at one player.
betting analogy that I often draw is that the corrupt
sportsman creates the equivalent of knowing in advance
when the roulette wheel is going to land on red or
black," said Condon.
the betting potential if you knew that. Even better,
by fixing a part of a sporting event - say, fixing
to bowl two wides in a particular over of a cricket
match - he creates the equivalent in betting terms
of knowing in advance when the roulette wheel is going
to land on an individual number, thus enabling a massive
betting coup because of the long odds that you can
obtain on such an event."

that they have stamped out corruption, the cricket

in sports corruption than drug dealing or robbery,"
Indies all-rounder Marlon Samuels is currently under
investigation over allegations he supplied team information
to Indian bookmaker Mukesh Kochchar. Police in India
believe Kochchar may have links to India's most notorious
gangster Dawood Ibrahim.

the 1993 Mumbai sectarian bombings that claimed the
lives of 257 people, is believed to be a major figure
in the world of illegal gambling.

bookmakers reportedly use networks of safe houses
and constantly changing untraceable mobile phones
to deal with customers.
the underworld pulling the strings are not above murder
to ensure their profits. A number of bookmakers are
believed to have met violent ends, including South
Africa-based Muhammad Hanif "Cadbury" Kodvavi,
killed and chopped up in May 1999.
investigations have even affected cricket's international
minnows, with former Kenyan captain Maurice Odumbe
banned for five years in August 2004 for accepting
a string of blandishments from bookmakers.

in their attitude towards the very people they name
November, Ata-ur-Rehman had his ban lifted by the
ICC, while Azharuddin was feted as a hero of Indian
cricket by officials. He has sat in the VIP section
of matches and also played in a veterans game. Azharuddin
and Malik both hope to have their bans lifted.
whatever is proved in the Woolmer case, the spectre
of corruption will continue to dog the game for some
time to come. Gentlemen? Mnn, let's just call them
cricketers - they could be called a lot worse. Good
luck on the pitch (and with your info) Punter.
