November 4 2011 12:20 am Related News At the heart of the pain that the spot fixing revelationand now judgmenthas spawned is the assumption that we make about the moral fibre of sportspeople As a purely financial matterthis would not even be classified as a misdemeanourmaybe a father casting a stern look at a son No more Every cricketing country would have thrown up crimes of greater financial magnitude than this in the last 12 monthsand we in India are particularly culpable If a politician had done thisit would not even have made it to the news But sport tugs at the heart in a way no other public activity can And it does because sportin its most pristineblemishless formis unscripted People win and losethey laugh and they crybut they strive at all times It is what makes sport noble As the front pages around the world grow increasingly moroseas even religion spews hatred and divisionsport is meant to tell us what life should be like It makes us park our faith at its altar That is why what Salman ButtMohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif have done evokes sadness and disillusionment in far greater measure than the financial implications of their act But sportsmen come from the same cross-section of society as everyone else does Among sportsmen are the noblethe diligent and the caring as there are the callousthe cheats and the criminals As an actor is good at delivering linesa painter at embellishing an empty canvasso too are sportsmen at kicking a ball or finely timing it through cover We must expect no more Indeed I go through bouts of disillusionment myself In football players seem to cheat every minutein cricket they try to hoodwink an umpire into giving a batsman outin athletics they stuff themselves with performance enhancers In fairness thoughsportsmen attain fame far earlier than in almost any other profession Raw youth is thrust onto a public stage and expected to be mature and discerning Oftenthereforethey get shaped by the air they breathe in their vicinity It is an underestimated factor One of the reasons you go to great institutions or aspire to work in great corporations is that you acquire the values they stand for And so Pakistan cricket must ask itself what kind of air the youngsters in the team were breathing Mohammad Amir could not have been born corruptnor for that matter Salman Butt There must have been something in the environment that told them it was okay to do what they did People often talk about the invincibility that power lulls you into believing in; on the subcontinent young cricketers start believing that the adulation bestowed upon them will allow them to get away with anything This is therefore as much the fault of ButtAmir and Asif as of those that created the environment in which it was deemed acceptable to do so Hopefully this will be a deterrent but the onus on creating that environment lies with those that administer cricket You cannot have oddballs running cricket Lung cancer is a deterrent but it does not seem to stop peopleotherwise perfectly discerningfrom smoking The Madoffs do get caught and jailed for a lifetime but every day there is another Ponzi scheme being plotted and another sucker drawn in Administrations will have to be particularly diligentand funnily a solid man at the head of the PCB can actually use this to turn Pakistan cricket around I do not know enough about the structure there to know whether this is a possibility or just a silly statement but I do know that the world can do with Pakistan cricket being strong and honest And sowhile deterrence is a likely outcome of the sentencingthere is also the possibility of greater cynicismof believing that an unusual moment in the game was not the result of ingenuity but merely an act in a script That is why we need strong administration In the past AustraliaEngland and the West Indies have shown little inclination to investigate within and there is a feeling in the game that Sri Lanka could have done more India took some action but not through a judicial process and it would be fair to say that in our part of the world these revelations would have been suffocated by bureaucratic and legal red tape To that extentcricket owes the English legal system a big thank you The easy way out therefore is to attack the International Cricket Council It is not much good doing that because the ICC does not have the power to send people to jail or to launch a sting of the kind the News of the World did And yet they cannot take action until they have irrefutable evidence Like us they see games where something seems amiss but that is not much to go by However tame it might seemeducation and stringent punishment in the face of evidence are about as far as they can go And I think it is important too to remember that there are people who have said no to dubious money It is a star that those with character can wear proudly Hopefully that list will always be bigger than that put
