time to ban them from international cricket until they can behave properly within the rest of civilised society.

The whole team must have been in on this scam.

Problem is that the whole team has been tainted for years with throwing games. Shame but for once i agree that the best thing might be to throw them out of test cricket for some time until the whole team gets there act together

Perhaps their poor performances have been due to the fact only some players are in on the fixing but the others have gotten wind of it and are unhappy?

Someone was on Radio Five earlier pointing out that Pakistan are not the only team who have had such scandals.

Same as it ever was.......W.G.Grace was a cheat way back in the 19th Century.....

....The best way to stop this sort of thing is for the bookies to stop offering prices on such ludicrous events as predicting specific NBs, Wides etc.

...No market....no cheating....QED.

didn't take long for thinly-veiled racism to raise it's head even on this topic did it :roll: :lol:

As the old cricketing adage states :

when the ball begins to reverse swing in Pakistan it must be cheating....When in England it's 'the weather'...... 8)

These bets were incredibly specific, for a particular ball to be a no ball, something that normal regulated bookies don't offer odds for. The 'bookies' involved are illegal street bookies that operate in Asia, a far cry from what we have here. You couldn't make these kind of bets in the UK (unless you know some dodgy illegal bookie of course).

As for the Pakistani players involved, while I don't condone them, I can sort of understand why they would do it. They're earning a tiny tiny fraction of the amount that their opponents do, and they're being offered huge sums of money to do something that probably doesn't have any impact on the result of the game (similar to Matt Le Tissier kicking the ball out of play from kickoff I guess). It's not really surprising that they're willing to take the risk.
