Dark truth, spot fixing in IPL?

A sting operation has been unfolded showing footage involving domestic players who are involved in spot fixing in the IPL and domestic cricket. The fixing claims involve players, organisers and owners to propel a murky dealing situation. The sham has been brought into limelight by India Tv showing video footage of current IPL players.

The governing body of IPL has put a cap of Rs. 30 lacs on uncapped  domestic players' auction value and getting more money than their auction amounting in black money. According to the footage which show Mohnish Mishra of Pune revealing that Deccan Chargers had agreed to pay him 1.45 crores, a lot more than his value. He said he gets 1 crore as black money.  Shalabh Shrivastava of KXIP had demanded Rs.10 lacs for bowling a no-ball. Other players are also said to have links with the shambolic art of fixing that includes domestic cricket.

The ICC on this account didn't comment much saying this is a domestic issue.

The News channel also showed a video in which their reporter was shown talking to Srivatsava. The Kings XI Punjab player openly discussed changing IPL teams and wanted a payment of 70 Lakh to play for the Kolkata Knight Riders.
