also remained at the helm of Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) for several years shared two specific instances “When the vultures attacked my integrity professionalism and commitment to the sport “In 2000 I was accused of ‘bringing the Board intodisrepute’ when shortly after former South African cricketcaptain Hanse Cronje’s confession I exposed match fixing in Indian cricket Subsequent events vindicated my courageous stand” he wrote “The second time was when my rivals in the BCCI managed— through political influence — to open an investigation against me for obtaining land for the Punjab CricketAssociation stadium in Mohali Fortunately for me the CBI vindicated my position and it was upheld all the way to the Supreme Court” he added Bindra pointed out that Mohali is currently considered to be one of the world’s finest cricket stadiums “Instead of weakening me these unsavoury attacks onlystrengthened me as an administrator and individual They were truly badges of honour in my career “Fast forward to 2013 when Indian cricket was yet againengulfed by the IPL match-fixing controversy At that point as I have written before BCCI president NarayanswamiSrinivasan (Srini) should have been persuaded to or forced to resign immediately This would have allowed a fairinvestigation into the affairs of his son-in-law GurunathMeiyappan and also restored public faith in the game ButSrini treated the Board as his own ‘jagir’ (fiefdom) and opened the doors to court intervention in a gentleman’s game” He also mentioned that that the story doesn’t end here and has of late taken on some very “sinister hues” “Last year Srini was elected president of the Tamil NaduCricket Association More recently just last month the manwho is single handedly responsible for the BCCI’s overflowingcup of woes called a meeting in Bengaluru to ‘provide leadership’ and to look at the ‘overall interests of the BCCI’ and it’s associations” Bindra further wrote “Outgoing president Anurag

Top News Flamboyant allrounder Shahid Afridi believes that until the PCB sets a proper example the menace of players being linked to spot-fixing and corruption cannot be stopped in Pakistan cricket Afridi told the Geo Super channel in Dubai during the Pakistan Super League that he was very sad and disappointed after the latest scandal in which Pakistani batsmen Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif were flown back under the PCB’s Anti-Corruption Code The PCB said that the ICC’s ACU and its own ACU were carrying out more investigations against the two players who were in the Islamabad United franchise “What can I say I have been saying in the past also that until the PCB sets or makes an example of such players it will be difficult to stop this menace” Afridi said “To me it is the same situation because you are allowing tainted players back into cricket” he said Afridi said he would want to see the PCB bar such tainted players from all cricket including domestic “What is the use if after five years the same players are coming back I don’t think this can be stopped until the right example is set” he added The PCB in 2015 pushed the ICC to allow tainted left-arm pacer Mohammad Aamir to resume playing cricket even before his five-year ban for spot-fixing ended in September 2015 Aamir along with former captain Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif were found guilty of spot-fixing during the fourth Test against England at Lord’s in late 2010 The ICC’s anti-corruption tribunal banned them for a minimum of five years in early 2011 and their bans expired in 2015 after which all three are now back playing cricket The PCB’s decision to allow back Aamir has also come under criticism from some former players who believe that players once punished for corruption and spot-fixing should be banned for life Pakistan’s former Test captain Ramiz Raja also told a news channel yesterday that Sharjeel and Khalid should not be allowed back Asked by the host whether he would like to see Sharjeel and Khalid back to playing cricket after serving their punishments Ramiz said: “Over my dead body” Former players say the PCB set the wrong example by allowing Aamir back into the national team on the basis that he was young when the spot-fixing scandal took place in 2010 “You can’t show leniency in such cases Once a player is found guilty of soiling the game and his country he should be told to leave cricket for ever But unfortunately in Pakistan cricket set up we still have some players who have been accused of fixing in the past” former Test opener Mohsin Khan said For
