I don’t understand what’s happening in cricketing circles. An enquiry by Justice Qayyum was on and before its findings are out, they have announced three players as guilty. What if that enquiry finds them innocent? Wouldn’t everybody be in a bigger jam? It’s just too unsettling. We’re acting just like a banana republic. We are a banana republic. I don’t think this whole suspension of players etc has been politically motivated but those in authority are certainly trying to cash in on public opinion. The public is convinced that the players are guilty. I guess it needs a lot of guts to stand up to public opinion. Actually, Justice Qayyum should have given his findings three to four months before the World Cup. What it got delayed for I don’t know.
