got captainship, he married Ishita, I loved her she was editor of
magazine n used to interview us, Raman snatched everything from me I
could not see him become more popular by winning world cup so I fixed
match, Raman caught me red handed, He was going to complain but
threatened to kill Ishita n he knew I could do it so he kept quiet n
got out on zero he accepted charges of fixing but I feared he would
