If you are a cricket lover you must have watched many cricket matches, either at the stadium or on TV. You must have also read all the articles on recent events that have plagued the game such as spot fixing and match fixing, which are both bad for the game. In reading these articles you were practising reading comprehension.
Put on your thinking cap and remember your reading comprehension lessons. You know that a lot of information is factual and it is fairly easy to understand. However, a lot of other information is to be taken out from the text based on your understanding of what the writer is trying to say. In short you can draw inference from the text and you can also evaluate based on your understanding of the subject and what the writer is trying to say.
Most times, the writer does not go into minute detail about what he wants to say. He leaves a lot of things unsaid. By this method he keeps the interest of the reader in suspense so that the reader is made to read and search for answers. Often, the reader is able to put himself in the shoes of the writer and think like him. When he does that he will be able to understand what the writer wants to convey.
Some subjects are such that they cannot be articulated clearly. When some difficult situations arise, such as spot fixing or match fixing, it becomes difficult for the writer to be forthright. So, he leaves a lot of information out and allows the reader to make his own inference. One such passage is the text that follows, which is about spot fixing and match fixing in the game of cricket. Read the text then answer the questions in the quiz which will test whether or not you have understood what the text tried to say.
