Cricket is one of the sport were its players are more passionate towards the game and always look upon to play it with the right spirit (like Football, Tennis, Basketball). But there certain grey areas wherein an individual puts forth his best ahead of his team's and violate the rules of the game.

Match-fixing and spot-fixing are among such grey areas where the game is played against its spirit. Match-fixing is an action where a game's result is completely or partly pre-determined before its start, whereas spot-fixing is a practice in which a specific part of the game is pre-determined.

Some players willfully get into such activities and some players unknowingly fall into the trap set by the bookies, who encourage them to act against the spirit of the game. The latest inclusion to the list of international players with such corruption charges is the former Pakistani opener Nasir Jamshed.
