Cricket in strife

What does cycling and cricket have in common?

Both sports can barely be taken seriously anymore as a legitimate sport. Allegations that the Pakistan cricket team have rigged more games than one would bother to breath, casts a severe cloud over the legitmacy of our great traditonal game.

Corruption seems obvious in all areas of the game. More and more rumblings are coming out about the questionable nature of these “cashed up” Twenty20 competitions.

How can your average punter be assured that any given cricket match isn’t fixed? Lets just thank that the Ashes are coming our way this summer. As it seems the only pure form of cricket played around the world is between the two old rivals: Australia and England.
