@Spitfire and @amitoj both points are valid. The public is being taken for a ride.
And I think most know it. See the earlier WWF or WWE choreographies. People know everything is fixed and fake but still they turn out in large numbers and who knows, must be doing wonders for the TRPs as well. So the new mantra is everything is fair as long as public are enjoying and moolah rakers are raking enough.
Pah! Regarding Hansie Cronje's ordeal, I had vowed not to watch another match, but that did not happen. So like me there are people who know some insiders but still see and skip a heartbeat for that fixed boundry or trophy :(

with so much cricket going on, all this will be forgotten and people will look forward to the next series.

Just like how this thread will also die and there will be a new thread that reads " Our performance in WI " . Public memory is too short.

We had people burning effigies of a former Indian cricket captain. But see now , he is now a member of the parliament.
