But because of match fixing scandal, he ruined his career.
Till the time a person is not successful and does not earn any income, one gives a lot of importance to ethics and principles of life. Once one achieves prosperity and stability, one changes his ideology of life. At the end, one gets trapped by negative pleasure. In career, many times the youngster compromises with their character to reach the top. In many cases, especially during student life one tries to use shortcuts path by adopting cheating, malpractice and fraud. At the end, one end up behind bars.
