Interview - Rajdeep Sardesai On Spot-Fixing

Ahead of the launch of the first ever South Asian News Channel in the UK, News18 India, Rajdeep Sardesai, Editor-in-Chief, IBN Network, spoke to us to offer his thoughts on the spot-fixing controversy that continues to dog Indian cricket.

He brings us right up to date with the latest developments, talks about the impact the case has had and will have on the Indian Premier League and whether legalising betting in India would help prevent such controversies in the future.

After the Indian board (BCCI) has pledged to 'clean up cricket', he is asked to highlight which areas the board should look at concentrating on first, suggesting that perhaps the time is right for the IPL to move away from being run by the BCCI and even taking a break for a year.
