    If no other details come out except for the no ball fix, my opinion would not change.

    Pretty devastating. I was really starting to think the world of Amir as a cricketer.

    I'm not in favour of him having a life ban, but at the same time, I don't think I can ever be as much of a fan of his as I was before this.

    Fairly obvious as to why he'd be a target for the guy.

    Almost certainly introduced by a senior player, who seems to be Butt.

    Regardless man. He is old enough to know what is wrong or right...

    Should be banned for life. Hands down.

    I am almost certain that i will not be following Pak games which have any of these players in them....

    Reports are coming in Pak media that Haider was not injured to a point where he couldn't play. He was taken to a private clinic and the doc declared him unfit to play cricket on instructions of Pakistan manager Yawar Saeed, and that is why he was sent back home. Kamran Akmal is also a fixer and the man person in this who squad wanted him in the team....

    We all wonder why players like Asim Kamal, YK, Alam don't get selected in the test team...

    I think the only proper solution to this is to kick Pakistan out of the ICC. The US gets kicked because of "internal conflict" but the PCB has a huge hand in the disgrace which was the 2006 test at the Oval and ball-tampering, is part of the problem of why international cricket is not being played in Karachi, and now this absolutely horrific offense against global sportsmanship in general and not just the sport of cricket in and of itself, then they should get the boot for a half a decade to re-think everything on top of banning the guilty players for life from game. Maybe if they have to face the prospect of trying to get back to a test status from Division 7 after a 5 year hiatus, they'll re-think and re-organize their board enough, but as of right now the PCB is a f***** joke.

    As many of you have said the shocking thing is the age of Aamir. He is just 18 and he is already involved in such stuff. Asif I don't understand at all. Think of the balls he has to get involved in this stuff after his past. He definitely deserves a life ban and should never pick up a cricket ball again.

    Good to see SS using this situation as a means of pushing his own ideas.

    Geez I wish this kind of stuff would surprise me these days. Asif especially seems to have brought nothing but complete disrepute to both Pakistani and world cricket.

    Has to be life time bans. I don't give a **** if Amir is (supposedly) 18.

    As far as this test goes and the record that was broken,I think it should stand because it is spot-betting not match-fixing from what we have been told. It would be hugely wrong to take anything away from England and it's players.
    I really do feel for fans the of Pakistan cricket because I couldn't imagine how I would feel if it was my team and especially now when the country is already going through hell.
    I wonder what happens tomorrow at Lords? Very strange feeling it must be for the England players and to be honest I bet they are furious.

    Can't be a much better time to be the bowling team, tbh.

    As Z said earlier, the circumstantial evidence is pretty damning. I'd have no problem with serious bans for anyone proven to be involved provided they weren't coerced, which I suspect may be possible with Amir. Life? I dunno, depends on the circumstance.
