Because cricket and baseball can be as ignoble as otherwise, this article by Rob Steen on whether cricket can learn a thing or two from baseball in stamping out match-fixing is worth a read. Steen skates over baseball’s less than stellar record when it comes to dealing with illegal drug-taking, but, hey, sometimes there’s only so much corruption one article can cope with. By the way, for those who aren’t up on crooked cricketers, the asterisked name at the end of the piece belongs to Hansie Cronje, unfortunately a byword—like a flanneled Dorian Gray—for a gentleman of fine comportment and ostensible probity who went to the bad and met a tragic end.
