Cricket Match Fixing Cheating is nothing new. As long as there are games to be played and money to be made, there will always be greedy people who want to rig the system in their favor to make more. This happens just as much in cricket as any other sport. Do me a favor and Google cricket bans or cricket match fixing. What do you see? Chances are you see a Wikipedia page with about 20 players who were given bans of various lengths for cheating, accepting bribes, and fixing matches. And that’s just one search result.
