BCCI have chosen to dismiss the former Pakistan wicket keeper’s claims, calling them not worthy of responding to.
N. Srinivasan spoke on behalf of the BCCI and was quick to dismiss the idea that some of the matches were fixed as suggested by Rashid Latif.
Latif claimed that he had information from within stating that ICL ( Indian Cricket League ) was rampant into match fixing and that the IPL was not immune from the malice either.
Latif also claimed that too much money was corrupting the game whereby players would no longer care about the results because there was money to be made anyway. He even alleged that franchisees could be colluding with bookies who promise a huge payment and thereby, instruct their players to lose. He stated it was the reason why perhaps that some of these leagues were “resisting” the anti corruption unit.
Latif stated, “Ultimately, in this kind of environment, where controls are loose, regulation is weak, there is enough money floating about to make people weaker and prone to looking the other way, it is not so difficult to see the dangers that are present. It would be foolish not to see them.”
