that is a 60 crore question. Lee was fine & dandy and indian batsmen
were at sea and yet......

symonds dismissal did not look right. It looked unnatural.
even hayden gifted away his wicket.

either that or, for Murugan's sake, 3-0 would have a killer for the
interest in the series.

Not English bookies. Everyone knows match fixing happens only from indian
bookies. or it could be money from BCCI to keep series alive.

You are crazy. India won with their performance in the death overs
especially Harbhajan and Karthik

How do you know for sure England bookies are not involved in match fixing

Because if you're a proper bookie you don't need to fix the result,
you set the odds right and make money no matter who wins.

To be fair though, it's not unusual to have people go for plenty in
their final over, and Bracken has, on the whole, been as likely or
more to bowl economically at the death.

The extra deliveries really killed it of course. Without half or an
astonishingly high number, Australia would have won.

I see performance variability as much more likely than match fixing. I
can't see Symonds wanting to throw away a century or Bracken wanting
to look like he cost Australia the game.

A far more persuasive reason is that the volume of betting on cricket
odos not involving England is so small that the bribes they would have
to pay to achieve the fix would cost far more than they would make
from it. I'd guess that if they had to dip into the slush fund for
more than $50 they'd be down on the deal.

And trying to fix an odo involving England is quite patently an
idiotic thing to do. There is only really a market in bets on their
opponents, but bribing them to underperform only slightly improves
England's chances and the favourites will still win 60% of the time
instead of 80%. (India and SL seem to have been doing their best
recently to convince the world that England have an authentic odo
side, but I'm not at all convinced yet, and I doubt the serious
punters off whom bookies would expect to make money are either.)

Cheers,

Mike

Here is my *** theory:

Would be interesting to analyze how one day series go after the first
3 games. My take is whoever is ahead at the end of 3 games, wins the
series. It is not improbable that teams decide the winners mutually at
the end of 3 games and the rest are played out evenly with the game
getting decided in the last match of the series. This is how things
turned out in the recent India - England series.

Opinions, anyone!!

What about improper bookies in England.

Well think about it. Totally outclassed in the first 3-4, miraculous
reversal in the next 2 (esp the one where Mascarenhas hit 5 sixes) and
outclassed in the final one. Fits the above pattern.

Brad Hodge messed up Australias chase when Symonds was going strrong at the
other end.

Out of form Hodge's miserable 17 of 29 balls clinched the match for India I
think.

Even in Kochi match I hoped SreeSanth would drop Pontings catch since it was
Pontings first match after the injury and he was NOT comfortable at all in
the middle playing and missing many deliveries.

NO

the umpires were following the ICCs directive to umpire games in the
interest of the the ICCs commercial benefit. If they didn't they would be
sacked like D Hair

Australian cricket fan MattO admitted yesterday Australians got PLENTY of
FAVORABLE decisions from the Umpires last Ashes series.

I guess they were FOLLOWING ICC directive to PROTECT Aussie crickets
commercial interests.
