The so called ‘Gentlemen’s Game’ is under yet another attack. The dark side of cricket, which inspires some to make truckloads of money at the blink of an eye, has resurfaced to show its repulsive face yet again. The incident at the Mecca of cricket has added to the cricketing jargon. Now we have to deal with the term ‘spot fixing’. As if we’d already grown comfortable with the term called ‘match fixing’.

After terror attacks and security concerns that snatched many international matches – and the much needed money – away from Pakistan, this must be the new low for our flood stricken neighbors.
