Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Sunday said that the latest 'spot-fixing" scam involving the Pakistan national team has brought “disrepute" to world cricket.
“It"s sad. Investigations are going on. Something like this, match-fixing or spot-fixing, brings disrepute to the game," Dhoni said about the fixing scam in which three Pakistan cricketers — Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Aamer — are undergoing investigation by the Scotland Yard police and the Pakistan Cricket Board(PCB) following a sting operation by British tabloid News of the World.
“It does not only restrict to the people who are doing it or the side they belong to.
“I think people start associating it with the whole fraternity which means all cricketers whichever team you are playing for also fall from grace," Dhoni told a news channel on Sunday.
When questioned about similar situations arising with Indian cricketers, the skipper said, “I don"t think so. I don"t think there is any motivation. The kind of effort we put in the field, I cannot even think about it.
