New Delhi: "Pure greed", says Dean Jones. "This was to happen and will happen again," said 1983 World Cup-winning star Kirti Azad. The Indian Premier League spot-fixing allegations against three Rajasthan Royals players, including former Indian speedster Sreesanth, has put India to shame and betrayed fans, according to the cricket fraternity.

"How much (more) money does the cricketers want? Where does this money go, surely not in their banks," wondered Jones, who feels, spot-fixing may not influence the result of a match in a big way, but "changes the scorecard."

Meanwhile Shashi Tharoor said: "Sreesanth is a good player and prestige of Kerala. Whether guilty or not will emerge after the investigations."
