Bringing shame to home:  Would PCB take back seat on Assad Rauf?

assad

 

Pakistani umpire Asad Rauf has been banned for five years by the Board of Control for Cricket India (BCCI) on charges of ‘corruption and misconduct. Rauf, who was recognised as one of the top umpires in the world alongside compatriot Aleem Dar, will be barred from umpiring or being associated with any BCCI-related activities. It is unclear whether the ban would also be applicable in the international arena. The Pakistani umpire was accused of involvement in a match-fixing controversy engulfing the megabucks Indian Premier League (IPL) competition and the International Cricket Council pulled him from the 2013 Champions Trophy amid reports he was under police investigation. Media in India alleged Rauf had been in contact with Bollywood actor Vindu Dara Singh Randhawa, arrested on charges of acting as middleman between bookies, players and officials, but the umpire insisted he was innocent. But a BCCI disciplinary committee, formed to investigate the case, finally announced its judgment on Friday, finding Rauf guilty of corruption under articles 2.2.2, 2.3.2, 2.3.3 and 2.4.1 of the board’s Anti-corruption Code. Rauf, who was part of the ICC’s elite panel and officiated in Test matches, was accused of accepting expensive gifts from bookies besides spot-fixing on Indian Premier League matches in the 2013 edition. Mr. Rauf claims that the BCCI did not have the authority to place this ban on him and that he would fight to clear his name. However his actions remain equally punishable and the accused should be held accountable no matter the authority handing out the punishment. The affairs of IPL are very much a responsibility of the BCCI and if the umpire was indeed involved in spot-fixing, he should be penalised for it. The Pakistan Cricket Board is taking the backseat on this one and that is probably the wise thing to do considering the circumstances. The PCB needs to protect itself from further harm as Pakistani cricket has been in the news lately for all the wrong reasons. The 2013 Indian Premier League spot fixing and betting case saw the arrest of three cricketers, Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan, on the charges of spot-fixing. In a separate case, the Mumbai Police arrested Vindu Dara Singh and Gurunath Meiyappan for alleged betting and having links with bookies as well. It is optimistic to note that the BCCI is taking strict action against all the perpetrators. The ICC should be involved to extend the ban on international cricket if the charges are proved beyond doubt. There is no place for cheating and corruption in sport and we have to stop making excuses for those who break the law.
