1 hour
First broadcast:
Wednesday 02 November 2011

Salman Butt, Mohammed Asif and Mohammad Amir are likely to get jail sentences for their part in a spot-fixing scam.

Nicky Campbell asks: how damaged is cricket?

Guests include former England wicket keeper Paul Nixon, who believes experienced former players can help to help spot these scams. Shaheed Sadullah, former editor of Cricket Life, tells Nicky that people from an under-privileged background are vulnerable to corruption. And Lawrence Booth, editor of Wisden, says it'll be a long time before we can watch a no-ball without it raising eyebrows in the press box.
