The visible, and the audible. The malady afflicting Indian cricket today is a hearsay. Not little spadefuls of coal you chuck in the boiler pit but big mouthfuls of Little Lucy, the biggest earch-mover ever build. It zaps you from all directions-journalists, board officials, players, ex-players, commentators, bookies, punters, police, bell-boys.
The trick is to filer the hearsay. Use it like batteries to focus on the visible. For instance, a senior Mumbai police officer's assertion that cricketers fix matches: "The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) can plead ignorance. Pleading ignorance is a kind of connivance."
