Cricket and Gambling

...Cricket, Gambling and India Gambling has gambled heavily on India. It’s appetite to enter Indian market, over the years, has shown only signs of strengthening. Now it has on its side some of the biggest moguls of Indian industry like Subhash Chandra (Zee) and Vijay Mallya (Kingfisher). Subhash Chandra might be famous as a media biggie but as early as in 2007 he earned almost as much from his lottery brand Playwin as the rest of his media, packaging and real estate businesses added together i.e. a cool Rs. 2400 crore. According to Playwin website, the company has at least ten games to offer. The lotto & gaming brand of Pan India Network Ltd. claimed in June 2010 to have created 71 crorepatis and over 3,000 lakhpatis from all over India within a short span of 8 years since its establishment. Of course it doesn’t talk about the many people who would have gone bankrupt due to gambling. But this is the visible picture. According to a story published in the Businessworld in 2008, unlawful betting in the IPL cricket season averaged $100 million per match in 2008. Indians bought over 30 million lotteries a day and the lottery market alone was estimated to be upto Rs 50,000. The total gambling industry was upwards of Rs. 100,000 crore in 2008 itself. There is hardly any doubt that despite all the recessions, the gambling industry has only gone up. Howsoever we frown at the moral aspect of gambling, it remains the most popular vice. That it can’t be stopped is clear. That it...

Spot Fixing in Cricket Matches

...------------------------------------------------- Topic: Spot fixing in cricket matches. 1. Introduction Spot fixing in sports is the practice of fixing a specific segment within a match. It usually involves a player agreeing, prior to the game that he will perform in a particular way. In cricket this might involve a batsman agreeing to only get a certain number of runs, or a bowler bowling a consecutive number of wide balls in a particular over, etc. Spot fixing stands in contrast to match fixing which refers to the practice of fixing the result of an entire match rather than the performance of one or more individual players within it. By its very nature then, spot fixing is a more discreet manipulation of a game, making it much more difficult to detect than match fixing. Spot fixing in cricket has rapidly increased for the last few years. It’s becoming impossible to detect as well. “Spot-fixing, the manipulation of individual incidents within a match which may not affect the result, is a more insidious crime and one which can be impossible to detect.” (Mehaffey,2012). The players are becoming addicted to it as it is less risky and also it will help them to earn more money within a short period of time. Spot fixing is becoming a great threat. Betting houses and gamblers are aware of it and they are putting more money on cricket. It’s not the only concern for cricket but also the money that has been earned through betting are used to illegal activities such as......

..." Topic  * India Cricket A Test match lasts five days and, if it goes the distance, 2,700 legal deliveries are bowled through that period. In one-day internationals (ODIs), it is 600 balls, and in Twenty20 (T20) the number is 240. If someone could get a cricketer to fix just five or six balls in a match, they could collect huge gambling profits without anyone noticing. And the possibilities for fixes are almost endless. Before the match Bets are taken on predicting the playing squad, and fixers have allegedly prevailed upon players to pull out minutes before the start of a game. The toss comes next, and, in the past, a corrupt captain could fix even that, by quickly picking up the coin and congratulating the opposing captain on his "winning" the toss. Bets can also be placed on who will open the batting and from which ends, and on who is going to bowl the first over. Such decisions are somewhat random and therefore fixes are hard to detect. During the match Punters can wager on any event and on every ball. Examples: how many runs a batsman will score; if he will hit the next ball for a six, four, single or simply pat it back to the bowler; the mode of his dismissal; which bowler is going to get him out; or when a bowler will deliver a no-ball or wide. "The odds of a batsman getting out hit-wicket are as high as 80 to one," a Mumbai bookmaker said. "So imagine the money to be made if a punter or bookmaker could convince a batsman to get out in that mode." The......

...Sport (or sports) is all forms of usually competitive physical activity which,[1] through casual or organised participation, aim to use, maintain or improve physical ability and skills while providing entertainment to participants, and in some cases, spectators.[2] Hundreds of sports exist, from those requiring only two participants, through to those with hundreds of simultaneous participants, either in teams or competing as individuals. Sport is generally recognised as activities which are based in physical athleticism or physical dexterity, with the largest major competitions such as the Olympic Games admitting only sports meeting this definition,[3] and other organisations such as the Council of Europe using definitions precluding activities without a physical element from classification as sports.[2] However, a number of competitive, but non-physical, activities claim recognition as mind sports. The International Olympic Committee (through ARISF) recognises both chess and bridge as bona fide sports, and SportAccord, the international sports federation association, recognises five non-physical sports,[4][5] although limits the amount of mind games which can be admitted as sports.[1] Sports are usually governed by a set of rules or customs, which serve to ensure fair competition, and allow consistent adjudication of the winner. Winning can be determined by physical events such as scoring goals or crossing a line first, or by the determination of judges who are scoring......

Cricket

...Introduction: Cricket is one kind of outdoor game. It is played between two teams. It is played with a ball, a bat and wickets. The ball, the bat and the wickets are properly sized for this game. They are called cricket-ball, cricket-bat and cricket-wickets. Cricket is the national game of England. Its origin is traced back to 13th century. Cricket is very popular in England and its popularity has spread to other parts of the world. Now it is a game of international status and now match-games of cricket are being played in international tournaments. Description: Cricket is played between two teams. One is the bowling side and the other is the batting side. There are eleven players in each team. The players of the bowling side play in different positions such as: Bowler, Wicket keeper, first slip, second slip, point, gully, long-off, long-on, long off boundary, long-on boundary, third man boundary. The players of the batting side come to play as: two openers, first down, second down, third down, fourth down, fifth down, sixth down, seventh down, eighth down, ninth down. Beside, there are tow umpires, one stands just the back of the wicket of the bowling side and the other stands some yards away, left or right of the wicket of the batting side. Cricket is played in a round field. A cricket-wicket is made of three stumps and two bails. They are a approved size. Two wickets are correctly fixed in the middle of the cricket-field. There is a pitch between......

...non-event, for the move to open the bowling with left-arm spinner Ankeet Chavan almost yielded success when Tendulkar was trapped in front first ball. Paul Reiffel, the umpire, felt the ball pitched outside leg when it hadn't. Chavan should have had Tendulkar again in the sixth over, catching him on the pads during an attempted pull, but Reiffel, once more, felt otherwise. Shane Watson's early breakthroughs - he dismissed T Suman and Ambati Rayudu in successive overs - coupled with Chavan's discipline had deprived Mumbai of an attacking start they would have hoped for after choosing to bat, though Tendulkar's reprieves gave them the opportunity to rebuild. Rohit Sharma had won praise from Warne as one of the most exciting talents in Indian cricket, and he undoubtedly would have impressed his opposing captain with his performance today. He quickly took the lead in the stand with Tendulkar, smashing Watson over midwicket and charging out to Chavan to dispatch him over mid-on. His stand-out shot was an imposing drive against Warne through extra cover, matched by a delightful punch in the same region off Johan Botha who couldn't restrain Rohit despite chasing him as he made room. In the battle of the heavyweights, Warne managed to induce a leading edge from Tendulkar, who followed up with a slash past point and a controlled thump over mid-off (both for twos) despite being surprised by the turn and bounce. The contest was cut short when Tendulkar upper-cut Amit Singh......

...that a crickets chirping is directly related to temperature. And that one can know approximately what temperature it is by the amount of chirps they put out. There has also been an equation that I have read about that I would like to test. So based on this my hypothesis is: Hypothesis: The amount of cricket chirps heard in a fifteen second time frame plus 48 is the approximate temperature of the cricket's environment in degrees Fahrenheit. + 48 = Background Information: Male crickets have organs that produce sound on their front wings. Male crickets rub their wings together to produce that chirp you hear at night. But they are not just chirping to make the quiet night go by. Male crickets are trying to attract females. Scientists have noticed a very unusual relationship between crickets' chirpings and temperature. On very cold days, there are large intervals between cricket chirps. That means the space between each cricket chirp is long, and so the chirps are not very frequent. On warmer days, the interval between each cricket chirp is smaller and so the chirps are heard frequently. Hypothesis: The amount of cricket chirps heard in a fifteen second time frame plus 48 is the approximate temperature of the cricket's environment in degrees Fahrenheit.

Cricket

...Cricket is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of 11 players on an oval-shaped field, at the centre of which is a rectangular 22-yard long pitch. One team bats, trying to score as many runs as possible while the other team bowls and fields, trying to dismiss the batsmen and thus limit the runs scored by the batting team. A run is scored by the striking batsman hitting the ball with his bat, running to the opposite end of the pitch and touching the crease there without being dismissed. The teams switch between batting and fielding at the end of an innings. In professional cricket the length of a game ranges from 20 overs of six bowling deliveries per side to Test cricket played over five days. The Laws of Cricket are maintained by the International Cricket Council (ICC) and the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) with additional Standard Playing Conditions for Test matches and One Day Internationals.[1] Cricket was first played in southern England in the 16th century. By the end of the 18th century, it had developed into the national sport of England. The expansion of the British Empire led to cricket being played overseas and by the mid-19th century the first international matches were being held. The ICC, the game's governing body, has ten full members.[2] The game is played particularly in Australasia, the Indian subcontinent, the West Indies, Southern Africa and the British Isles. The rivalry between England and Australia gave birth to The Ashes in 1882 and this has......
