That will have a negative effect. No one will open their mouth
unless they have clear cut proof to back. Water tight proof
is hard in Indian context.

They can't be sure. They haven't said so yet. But they still have
to bring it up if there is any truth in their claim that someone
calling himself as Kale offered bribe over the phone.
However, BCCI has handled the issue in a very clumsy manner.
If they didn't want to divulge the name of the guy until a certain
date, why the hell did they come up with "some m'rashtra cricketer
offered so much to 2 unnamed selectors". They must have waited until the right time and come up with
the whole truth. How
come press knew the names within 15-20 minutes(going
by Shridhar's posts). This whole thing seems stage managed.
Come up with a vague story, leak the names to the press and let
the media conduct a trial. After promptly leaking the news to the press, these fellows act very
responsibly and say they won't name
the persons involved etc. Kale might well be guitly of wrong doing.
I don't rule out anyone doing a stupid thing. But, what the
BCCI has done doesn't seem to be fair. And our press is
pathetic. If the guy says "guilty will be punished", they translate
it to "Kale will be punished if found guilty".
