Indian Reaction to the Betting Scandal


Chandu Borde, Indian Chairman of Selectors:

"Frankly this came as a shock to me." [Audio]

Arshad Ayub, India and Hyderabad:

"Everybody thought that this guy is so committed, so professional. I don't know what was in his mind when he took that money but I feel that we all should give him another chance." [Audio]

"Probably you can say that for a year he should not play international cricket. Let him work his way back." [Audio]

"Frankly I don't know. I feel that whether you're paid enough or not these things are not called for." [Audio]

It is damaging in the sense that people now start trusting the results little less. [Audio]

An expert committee has to sit on this and talk about it. I'm sure the people who are responsible will come out with some kind of formula. [Audio]



Venkatapathy Raju, India and Hyderabad:

He was appointed captain at the age of 24, and the way he was leading the team and winning matches, it was very surprising that his name came up. [Audio]

Before '96 there was not much money for cricketers. After that the Board has increased money for players with individual contracts and everything. Probably they've seen so much money, they might be thinking its pocket money. [Audio]

Venkatapathy Raju
(The) public should realise that the big businesmen or bookies are the ones who're trying to lure players. The public should go against them, not the players. [Audio]

Like what the Delhi police has done, I think it'll be easier for respective countries to deal with it. Nowadays the police take so much pride in their jobs. [Audio]

You might be talking to your family, it might be personal also. If you're listening to all those things, naturally next time nobody will want to talk on the phone. [Audio]
