CCTV footage from Thames Valley Police of the robbery at Tilehurst Coral Bookmakers on Monday, March 28 2011.
Dave Richardson was a really good test wicketkeeper, and is now a senior administrator in the ICC. That’s why it is so astonishing to hear him admit to Hansie Cronje’s offer of a bribe, “That sounds quite interesting.” “Maybe this is a way of making easy money.” Richardson also blows the gaff when he discloses that the whole South African test team were interested. MK Gupta the bookmaker is shown to have bribed Indian Test Captain Mohammed Azharuddin. Any cricket lover will be amazed to be reminded of the fact that the captains of India, South Africa and Pakistan (Salim Malik) took money from bookmakers. As did Shane Warne, but that’s another story. Ian Botham is asked if there is more to come from Cronje. His answer is, “I’m sure there is.” But ITB was wrong because Cronje and Woolmer were destined to die before they could say more.
