Cricket is Corrupt – part 1

Harbhajan Singh - Ind Vs Eng,Mumbai, March 29,...

Racism? Don't worry about it mate, that's fine.

I know as soon as I say corruption you immediately think to the various betting scandals that have taken place over the last few years. But no, I’m talking about how the subcontinent countries (India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka) have held the game at ransom and controlled the world of cricket to their liking. Just typing this fills me with rage. It’s actually ridiculous how much they get away with. Let me take you back to the 2008 India vs Australia Test series. It had been proven that Harbhajan Singh had racially abused Andrew Symonds (not for the first time either) and the ICC match referee was ready to slap him with a solid fine and long suspension. BUT NO, GOD FORBID WE HAVE JUSTICE WHEN INDIA ARE PLAYING. The Indian cricket board or whatever the hell those pricks call themselves decided they would threaten to fly the Indian team home unless Harbhajan’s sentence was delayed. The tool ended up only missing a few one dayers instead of a whole test series which is what he should have got.

My blood is boiling just thinking of it. If that was Australia, South Africa or even England there would have been a huge blow-up about it. But with India the problem seemed to just fade away very quickly. Funny how that works isn’t it? I’ll explain how this ‘system’ works and how other countries have corrupted the game in part 2 which you can read on my blog  Cricket and all its Wonders. If you’ll excuse me I have to go punch a wall to release this rage.

cheers for listening.
