Default Match fixing is ruining Pakistani cricket - Geoff Lawson interview on Dateline

Match fixing is ruining Pakistani cricket - Geoff Lawson interview on Dateline

Former Australian player Geoff Lawson is about to take on Woolmer's job and he tells Dateline that he'll walk away from his coaching commitments if he discovers any evidence of corruption. Meanwhile, Dateline travels to Karachi in Pakistan, one of the biggest hubs on the subcontinent for the gambling mafia. He speaks to a former judge, who says match fixing in cricket is still going on...and a former player who claims that at least one of the recent World Cup games was fixed.

it might not extend to the level of bribing the international players but betting on matches is big business. it just happens to be a major industry that sponsor the development of cricket. unless betting could be taken out of sport bribery would remain a concern. although, it must be said that as the salaries for major team players rise to the level of other major sports, the players would be less tempted to chuck a match.
