In the wake of recent spot-fixing controversy in the IPL, Sanjay Dixit in the Daily News and Analysis argues that the problem is systemic and goes much deeper than just the involvement of players.

Though the overt stake is much reviled, it is the covert system of riches on offer which is eating into the vitals of the system of Indian cricket. Apart from the hypocrisy of honorary jobs and non-profit character of different associations, the IPL has also brought a massive corrupting penumbra into the system which is not being acknowledged by most.
