Subject : Shoaib Akhtar Trolled Over Speaking Up on India’s Pitch-Tampering


In recent news, India is facing some trouble for its pitch-fixing controversy. Pune’s cricket ground curator and former cricketer, Pandurang Salgaoncar was found guilty of taking money from bookies and fixing the pitch condition according to their want.

Sportsmen being emotionally attached to the game, Shoaib took it to Twitter to express his feelings. In a tweet, he expressed how shocked and speechless he was and that this scandal needs to deal with an ‘iron fist’ action.

However, things took a turn when Indian cricket fans started to reply to him by saying that he should be worrying about the condition of Pakistan’s cricket team and their related issues instead.

Many told him to keep calm and mind his own country’s business instead of having to worry about the scandal and Indian affairs.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) banned Salgaoncar soon after he was seen promising a favourable track to reporters who posed as bookies.
Salgaoncar also showed the men around the Pune surface the day before the ODI, breaching the ICC rules governing access to the pitch.

The 68-year-old was a fast bowler from Maharashtra state in the 1970s before taking up the role of curator with the state association. He played a total of 63 first-class games.

Earlier this year as well, Salgaoncar was in the dock when ICC match referee rated Pune’s pitch as poor after the end of the first Test between India and Australia.

The match had ended on the third day with the visiting team defeating India by a margin of 333 runs.
