The Cronje Affair was an India-South Africa Cricket match fixing scandal that went public in 2000.[57] It began in 1996 when the-then captain of the South African national cricket team, Hansie Cronje, was convinced by Mukesh "John" Gupta, an Indian bookmaker, to throw a match during a Test in Kanpur, India. The scheme was discovered when Delhi police recorded illegal dealings between Indian bookmaker Sanjay Chawla and Cronje. According to the Telegraph in 2010, Cronje was paid off a total of £65,000 from Gupta.[58]
Online sportsbook reviews serve an important role in the sports betting industry, most importantly for bettors themselves, and credible sports information websites are obliged to produce objective consumer reports on these betting sites. Why? Because there are rules and regulations that need to be followed in order to protect customers, and the unfortunate reality is there are a wide range of reputations out there from good to bad with mediocre somewhere in between.
