    You keep bringing up Pakistan's history with ball tampering when there's never been anything outside of accusations.

    Reverse swing obtained even after 8 overs by Zaheer and IShant Sharma. Fred and Simon did it in 15 overs.

    Reputation doesn't have to based around fact. But I do believe Pakistan has cheated in the past to gain an advantage. So do many more.

    Again, not that I think the incidents I listed down were wrong, but how are they innocuous? He's made some ripples during his captaincy.

    I guess though, considering you're used to Ricky Ponting's captaincy, Vettori has actually been pretty quiet

    Yeah, that was my point of reference

    I reckon you could do a similar one for Ponting and get about 40-50 pretty easily.

    Umm, they asked the match referee if there was any evidence, and where happy when there wasn't any. I don't get it.....

    They already asked the match umpire once and told that nothing was wrong with the ball. Why go and ask again ?

    What next, Contact United Nations and ask Ban Ki Moon ?

    I was unaware that an umpire and a match referee were the same people with exactly the same job, exactly the same view of the game, the exact same opinion, and the exact same resources.

    How silly of me.

    No it's not that Pakistan is the only country to ever ball tamper, just that Pakistan has a bigger reputation of it. And because of that reputation a person is going to think there's a greater chance that tampering has taken place.

    And that 'Bigger Reputation' that you talk about is simply because of incidents like this. The fact is that it will Never Go Way and will be brought up every time someone writes a time line of ball-tampering despite the fact that it is completely unfounded.

    Did Gul have a Reputation of it ? Not really but after this incident he does. Another Pakistani accused of Ball tampering. Actually it tells the sorry state of Pakistan Cricket that no one is willing to stand up and and when they do speak up they make a mess like Oval Test.

    First of all finally got out of jail, was accused of RACIAL behaviour lol
    really funny cuz i guess i belong to same race as does the indians lol
    by the way, this ball tempering stuff, really annoying.
    What's the proof?
    Why kiwi's are shouting that Pakistan cheated when they've no evidence?
    It means i can shout today, if south african batsmen hit long sixers against Pakistani bowlers, i can say they've something in their bats, otherwise no other team has hit that many sixers against our bowling. Rite?
