The ICC is not playing by the rules while making new rules
Gulu Ezekiel in Level the playing field (July 4) rightly argues for the International Cricket Council (ICC) to formulate new rules that favour bowlers. The ICC should be careful while making rules, as its recent decision to implement the Decision Review System (DRS) undermines the role of the umpires. Team India has also been unfair to the umpires by challenging their decisions in the ongoing tournament in the West Indies. The ICC must review its decisions and give umpires their due.

Shake up the UPA one more time
The report No consensus on lokpal, talks with Anna flayed (July 4) suggests that the prospects of a strong Lokpal Bill being tabled in Parliament are getting bleaker by the day. This is the right time for Anna Hazare to begin his agitation again and mount pressure on the government to take the issue of the lokpal seriously.

No certain justice in India
Arvind Kejriwal and Kiran Bedi in The corrupt are afraid (July 4) state their agenda clearly. Politicians are opposing the institution of a lokpal to save themselves from getting on the wrong side of the law. Mega scams like the 2G scam, the Commonwealth Games scam and the Adarsh housing society scam wouldn’t have taken place if the UPA had been careful and honest in its working. At a time when the corrupt are walking free, we urgently need an independent body like the lokpal, which can bring them to justice.
