That's not a fixed match though. A fixed match, to me at least, implies that you're fixing it for sinister reasons (ie. money), whereas if Pakistan have deliberately turned in a below-par performance here, it's more just making a strategic decision, albeit unsportingly, based on the set-up of the tournament. There's definitely a difference.
