Nick Faldo | 13 years ago | Reply During the last session of IPL it was evident to a lay man even that most of the matches were fixed. If we see the re plays of the matches we can easily judge it, Even the biggest player of India Sachin Tendulker was involved.In one match He was batting comfortably and his team score was 62 for 2 .Suddenly He gets tired and goes back to pavilion and when He comes back his team s 8 players were out and He can do nothing and looses the match. Many many occasions can be narrated . IPL 2010 was a heaven for gamblers. And the result is evident,India s shameful eit from ICC T20.No indian player performed there.
