  2. kea, what do you think about ipl match/spot fixing, what about big fishes like dhoni, sachin, kohli, team owners, managers. I think if big fishes were not involved people like sreesanth and chandila wouldn’t have the courage to do so. but these bigger scams will never come out.(i am not sure about sachin though)

    • If the truth has to come out, BCCI should let CBI handle this and clean up the game.

      But unfortunately that’s never going to happen. BCCI will just ban these 3 and say game is clean. This is a temporary fix.

      You know I don’t support Indian cricket team nor CSK. BCCI are the bullies of world cricket and get their way in almost anything. CSK owner is the secretary/president of BCCI, and CSK get their way thru in everything.

      I do watch a bit of cricket, but tests interest me more.

      • BCCI are the bullies of world cricket and get their way in almost anything.

        Kea very true. I have the same feeling about BCCI secretary.Recently sivaramakrishnan was appointed despite some member countries agitation.it is very obvious the member countries of ICC are helpless.they are treated like puppets. poor guys.i feel sorry for them.

  11. its great that Bangalore is receiving good rainfall but I really wish the catchment areas of the krs in kodagu, hasan and Mysore receive good rain if not there’s goin to be big water shortage in bangalore

  12. I think the entire ipl is a scam. The matches are played and fixed according to commercial interests. cricket is loosing its charm and passion very sad. today sun risers wont win.ipl management like to see RCB in play offs not sun risers. Its been fixed i think. lets wait n c.

    • @Karthik.. The pressure would have been huge to name a player from Bombay n that too Ajinkya..Chavan too is from Bombay, but he is just an upcoming player.. Dont think he will be named..

      • The thing is, everybody in the higher positions know that IPL is fixed. I’m guessing what happened that prompted them to reveal all this suddenly. Some sort of misunderstanding or a diversionary tactic from something much more serious.

  13. Many places in Karnataka has been battered, seeing the preliminary rainfall figures. More than 75 stations have got above 10 mm rainfall. Will compile a list after getting rainfall from more stations.

    • @Kea..Honestly, chances for Roger are very slim knowing the slow clay of Rome..Madrid would have been a different story cos its the fastest clay court available. I want Roger to win, but one has to face the reality and that too on clay.

  14. Hi all good morning
    you know what? CSK vs KKR finals 2012 was fixed and the sources said that it happened….. can anyone believe this? 😦 ❓ ❗

  15. @Kea– 7.30pm cracker between Nadal Vs Fed..which Channel is telecasting ?Nadal has an edge as I guess it is clay

  16. IPL fixing- spot or match- has always been there from IPL 1..time for the condescending sports aficionados to move over to tennis,Football,Badminton and if you are a hardcore Cricket fan,time to focus on Test matches..(I am sure that the trio are only the front..every team has fixers in their midst)

      • @Kea– I am with you..the IPL watchers want a 3 1/2 hrs entertainment..a masala movie type fare..with bowlers doing a warcry after every wicket and most of them doing a gangnam and the cheerleaders + sidhuisms..yes,it is a great time-pass

  17. @gopal,jupi,kea this is a good article.

    Prize money for 3rd 4th 3.75 crore or something. The main source of income is shared between all the teams.The franchises are not that much bothered whether their pplayers are winning or not. Ya, main source of income is broadcase income and for that close matches are required,etc. So chances of fixed amtches seems high

  18. Yes pj… Slowly models wil be in same line wrt tis system..system is almost near very fav conditions ,TCHP luks gr8… So tis system shld be under close watch..Another interesting fact is tat the behaviour of arb sea, usually it wil be mysterious and unpredictable wen it comes to intensity….

  19. The distrubance in arabian sea is showing some good spin but there are lot of dry air is wrapping into the system which would prevent it from organizing.

      • As expected nothing comes out of This so called important BCCI meeting..They will not take any harsh decisions till the IPL gets over..If they do take some measures, it will have some impact on the ongoing tournament. Hence this is more like Japal Bhatti’s comedy satire –Meeting..Herewith im attaching the link of that comedy satire episode.FLOP SHOW..Enjoy it.
