Former Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar may have invited censure for skirting the match-fixing fact that plunged Indian cricket in 2000 in his autobiography but top level  lawyers supported the icon saying it was the entitlement of a celebrity like him to express himself in a manner he considers fit.

Though he made brief references to the fixing scams, Sachin Tendulkar did not focus on one of the darkest periods in Indian cricket, in the process attracting.

Illustrious lawyer Majeed Memon though thinks when a personality of the stature of Schin Tendulkar sits to write down his experience and the fickleness in his whole career, we should not anticipate him to pen down about things we want to know. He also said it is his entitlement and advantage to comminicate himself in the manner he deems fit.

Another one of the famous lawyer Mr. Ramakant Reddy said absence of evidence was the main obstacle in Sachin Tendulkar not stating anything about match-fixing in his bookPlaying It My Way.

The main reason for Sachin not writing about fixing is that there is no evidence. Even the India Government at that time inspected the CBI report and found that there is no evidence about that. The India government also secured opinions from senior advocates in Delhi who suggested that there was no evidence to begin against people with allegations. CBI exonerate the accused and this was an obstacle. The scam had finally led to a life ban for former India skipper Mohammad Azharuddin and bans of short time span for Ajay Jadeja, Ajay Sharma, and Manoj Prabhakar, all of whom were Tendulkar’s team mates in the end of 1990s.

Sachin wrote about 2001 match fixing issue in his book, Cricket hurtled to a low in the wake of the match-fixing scam. The integrity of the game had been compromised and he found the disclosures about matches being thrown for money unpleasant and disgusting.

Sachin was asked why he not wrote in detail about match fixing. He replied he thought whatever things he knew 100 percent he have revealed because he back up those things. But that things he is not aware of fully, it would be injudicious to comment on those.
