Another two cricketers from the Indian team are now facing a new fixing scam. Rather than match fixing it has been alleged that these two stars have been fixing toasters, kettles and even DVD players on the side.

While on tour over here instead of training in the nets the two are said to have been working on a cousins repair stall in Tottenham offering to fix allsorts of items ranging from Cappuccino makers to vacuum cleaners. However, they were spotted by an eagle eyed official who witnessed an old lady complaining about their efforts to repair her teasmaid.

With their team mates banned for years they are now said to be shittin poppadoms at the thought of having to fix electrical items for the rest of their lives.

Although the average repair man in the UK can earn over £100,000 per annum scamming old folk out of their life savings while pretending to fit a new element to their kettle, their Indian equivalent isn't so lucky.

'Indians generally try and fix these things themselves rather than call out a local scammer,' said one poor Indian repair man. 'Besides, they haven't got two rupees to rub together in most cases.'

An official said: 'Its one thing to claim to be able to fix a match but a TV is another thing entirely. These guys have had no training, have no formal qualifications and largely no idea what they are doing.'

Just like their British counterparts then!

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
