Politicizing ban of Sreesanth further darkens future of Indian cricket
Regional voices are emerging on the matter of Sreesanth which may immensely impact the future of Indian cricket. They are all getting against Sreesanth and other two cricketers who have been declared as innocent by the lower court in Delhi. Fans have a soft corner for their players, as it is because of them audience gets a chance to see some of the most wonderful matches.
Since our nation is a mixture of different religions, it is natural to see that Bengalis may support their Sourav Ganguly while people in Mumbai will extend support to Sachin Tendulkar. One of the perfect examples of such instances was when Sourav Ganguly was removed from captaincy and it resulted into a huge protest by the Bengalis. There have been various instances of this sort, when people in the state have felt that players of a specific state have been ignored by the politics of Board.
N Srinivasan, when was the president of Board there were allegations on him that he supported the players from South and gave them greater chances of representation. But now when Anurag Thakur is the president, people may feel that players from North are getting more chances to move ahead in their Indian cricket career. Fans usually feel that politician causes harm to cricket, however there is no justified reason to it always.
Ravi Sawani, who examined the case for BCCI India (and is not connected with the panel at the moment) stated, “In the BCCI India code, there is a specific offence of match-fixing and in the Indian law, there is no such specific provision. I can tell you that there was sufficient evidence that was considered by the disciplinary committee and based on that they came to a conclusion.”
In case of Sreesanth, it has been very well established that the man had links with bookies and a conversation between them has also been recorded wherein he has been heard finalizing a deal with a bookie in exchange of some money. To such offences, sufficient punishment has been established by the Indian cricket council and also the Indian Board’s code of conduct. The only problem which occurred in this case is, politicians are trying to exploit the case by pointing towards the religion instead of giving merit to the case or considering how such acts can harm the future of Indian cricket.
