read on here that it was in all likelihood that big money was at stake, it seems Bob was going to write a book about certain things
I am almost certain heavy gambling played a big part in it.
Pictured here Greg Chappell and Bob Woolmer.These bookies on the sub continent have been around for a long time, indeed threats have been made to certain players, and some of our older retired players have been heavily fined for this sort of behaviour; suspensions have also been meted out. Let’s face it India lost the game and have only a slim chance of moving into the next round, very slim indeed. I always fancied India would win to be honest; my 4 picks were to have been Australia, South Africa, New Zealand and India even though I know as most of the cricketing world knows that Sri Lanka could cart off the trophy they have before they beat us. Now I may have to revise my picks but I would never think of sacking a coach as it has been slyly mooted by various ex Indian cricketers. Sunil Gavascar a former Indian Cricketer mentioned it so I read on the BBC news and their reporting is usually of a very high standard. There have been riots and all sorts believe me this is not just because India appears to be on its way home Not at all it’s because a lot stand to lose a considerable amount of money
