Ashes 100-1 Countdown: 28 Days Until the Ashes…

The spot fixing controversy in the lead up to this year’s Ashes is likely to have had a significant impact on both the Australian and English camp. England had to play one of the most stressful and most peculiar series ever. Australia, on the other hand, faced Pakistan twice in the year and the expose of the scandal brought up fresh questions surrounding the Sydney test in which Michael Hussey and Peter Siddle’s heroics were somewhat overshadowed by the dismal dropped catches by one Kamran Akmal.

In a case like this it is very easy to simply attach blame to Pakistani cricket and disregard a more holistic approach. But nevertheless it is a fruitful exercise to examine its potential effects on the game of cricket as a whole. That is exactly what happened in this insightful Australian documentary on the ABC’s Four Corners program. In a Fix aired on October 25th is required viewing for every passionate cricket fan out there.

Thanks to the good guys at the ABC they’ve put the documentary online with no location restrictions so that every cricket fan can watch. With that in mind I’d really love to hear your feedback on the whole saga and the potential remedies for addressing such horrible events.
