Cricket will recover from match fixing, other controversies: Strauss

England captain Andrew Strauss has said that he is not concerned about the future of cricket, and believes the match fixing scam involving Pakistani players, will not cause irreversible damage to the sport.


London, Sept.10 : England captain Andrew Strauss has said that he is not concerned about the future of cricket, and believes the match fixing scam involving Pakistani players, will not cause irreversible damage to the sport.

"I don't worry for the future of the game of cricket. It has survived many controversies over the years and will continue to do so. I do recognize the importance of ironing out any of these allegations, because ultimately they are a cancer that can spread and devalue the game," Sky Sports quoted Strauss, as saying.

He added: "I think the ICC are doing a very good job in making sure these problems are minimised - and as players, we have a responsibility to help them out in that."

"Despite whatever allegations have been out there, I still maintain that cricket generally is a very clean sport and that two teams are playing to beat the other 100 per cent. If I can allay fears, I think there is no chance in my mind that these games coming up will not be played in that spirit," he said.
