October 11, 2012 2:29pm CST
In a decision that we all were eagerly waiting for since past week, ICC has finally announced suspension of all the six tainted umpires who were allegedly involved in the spot fixing cases. in my earlier discussion, where i had expressed my anger and resentment for the activity done by these umpires, this decision comes as a relief as i have always followed cricket and i hope it will serve as a strict warning for all the players and umpires alike who even think of getting involved in any such activity in the future. What are your thoughts regarding this? R u happy with ICC's decision? Please share your comments!

I am sad whenever I hear of this kind of news. I know it is evitable because not everyone can resist temptation. But the principle of games is equity and justness. No one can breaks it for his own benefit. The suspension of these tainted umpires is a comfort for us all. And I hope it will never happen again.

Hey thanks a ton for your response. Yes i completely agree to your point that this was a disgraceful news for the entire cricketing fraternity to hear about the spot fixing scandals involving the umpires. Of course money can be very much tempting and may be the lure of getting more money within few minutes might have been the reason for this. Whatever ICC has done is good for the cricket and would serve as a warning for everyone. What say?
