Mahesh Krishnaswamy

It is important that the right message is sent to promising youngsters who are dreaming of a career in cricket. There should be zero tolerance for cheating of any kind, whether it is falsifying ones age or fixing a match. This is even more important in India, which has the potential to be a force for good in international cricket. Although only one player cheated, it is appropriate for the team to be punished by stripping it of the under-19 trophy. Kalra will only have himself to blame for the disdain of his peers.
