Cricket is a game a lot of people love and people say it’s the fairest game on the planet ,in fact people say if something’s not fare ,it’s just not cricket .So imagine what would happen if someone cheated at this game ,the world would go nuts. Betting is about guessing what you think will happen and if you win your bet you get money ,but if you lose ,you give money. People today in Pakistan people are betting on cricket ,which isn’t illegal ,unless you count that one of the betters are telling Pakistan’s players to do something and when ,so they can get money. But to do this ,the person needs to persuade the players with money so they can win. The players who were involved were captain Salman Butt ,Mohamad Asif and Mohamad Amir. Pakistan coach ,Waqar Younis said:”I am trying to get the team up again and make sure we deliver the best we can in the few next games and try and do the best we can that’s all I can do.” Everything has a different opinion ,some say we should give them a second chance ,some say we should ban these players for life ,which I agree with ,and some say the whole team should be banned for life. Well as the saying goes ,it’s just not cricket. People are saying that when they did do it on purpose it was obvious .in my opinion ,yes they did the wrong thing and maybe they should be for life but maybe they had their reasons ,what do you think.
