Karachi: Jul 2, 2012

 

Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) decision to ban the five cricketers involved in Indian Premier League (IPL) spot-fixing controversy was applauded by former Pakistan opener and till recently the chief selector of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Mohsin Khan.

 

“I admire the Indian cricket board for their decision to ban one player for life and suspend the others for a limited period. Being a powerful body, BCCI have to lead by example and that is exactly what they have done in this case,” Mohsin was quoted as saying by MiD DAY.

 

While TP Sudhindra was banned for life, Shalabh Srivastava was banned for five years and the other three cricketers- Abhinav Bali, Monish Mishra and Amit Yadav- were handed one-year ban by the BCCI.

 

“It happened during Hansie Cronje’s time when few Indian players were shown the door. At that time, BCCI took a strong stance and that’s why their cricket has improved in leaps and bounds thereafter”

 

Mohsin also praised the way South Africa had handled the situation when the match-fixing controversy had rocked their country.

 

“I would also praise the role of Cricket South Africa for their strong measures then,” Mohsin said.

 

Mohsin believed that PCB should have also followed on the steps of BCCI to curb the menace.

 

“It should have been done some 15 years ago to save the country the blushes following the spot fixing scandal,” he said.

 

However, he is happy with PCB’s recent work in clearing this issue.

 

“I appreciate PCB’s way of operating in this issue. They have taken a serious note of the last incident (spot fixing scandal) and are taking all precaution to get rid of this rubbish once and for all,” Mohsin concluded.
