    Yeah, has to be life time bans for all involved once substantiated. Sad for cricket fans in one sense, but given the guys involved appear to be scum cheats anyway, not as big a loss as might be thought. And in any case, in some fights there will be casualties and these blokes put themselves on the chopping block.

    I think there have been enough incidents in recent times involving the Pakistan team that they should be suspended from international cricket for a while - I'd suggest at least until after the coming WC. There has clearly been a failure at more levels than just a couple of players being got at. I think the ICC needs to have some say into the make-up and conduct of the PCB as well before they are allowed back in.

    I feel massively sorry for the Pakistani fans but this crap has got to stop.

    Following the Sydney test I told myself I wasn't going to watch or take any interest in any further matches involving Pakistan because I was sick of finding out afterwards that I hadn't been watching what I thought I was. I ignored the Aus-Pak series in England, but had started following the Eng-Pak series because of the 'quality' of the cricket and because given I was now a mod, I thought I should at least follow the series and the thread. Ugh, no more. I'm boycotting them for the foreseeable future.

    Mate, I know you're upset, and everyone here feels for you immediately, but don't attack others for their views. We'll keep an eye on and warn anyone stepping out of line. Argue the point to defend players who you feel haven't done anything wrong, but don't attack other posters, ok?

    Amir had so much ahead of him. He could have made loads of money at the IPL later on. There was no need for him to get into this stuff, risking his future for a one-off financial gain.

    There's a saying that sometimes you dig you own graves in this world. I think this applies to the PCB and Pakistan cricket in general right now. Like it or not it's the truth.

    I honestly don't understand why anyone is surprised here, these actions are simply a product of their environment, in Pakistan, it is nearly impossible to get into schools, work places, professional teams without bribes, fraud and deception. It is just common place all throughout Pakistani society. Why do you expect cricketers to be different?

    Obviously this has nothing to do with Pakistani people as they are no different from people of any other nation but they are simply a victim to decades of exploitation and serious manipulation from the power centers above.

    This culture is evident all across spectrum, kids are exposed to it at a very early age. No surprises here.

    The match-fixing could not have been done under Afridi as multiple articles suggest. I'm not trying to defend Aamer's actions here but I hope this was a case of Butt asking a young 18 year old to bowl a no-ball or get out of the team and not a case of Aamer being directly involved, does not make his actions defensible but still. I hope Waqar Younis is not involved in the match-fixing.

    Apart from that, for those who were fully involved, Do the cricketing world a favour and go die in a fire, ****s.

    Before I defend Faisal for a second I just want to say

    Pakistan are a ****ing disgrace and deserve everything they get in this situation

    But if you think for one minute that they are the only sub continent involved in this crap (Sri Lanka vs India 3rd test anyone?) or even western players cairns etc then you are kidding yourselves

    So is the tip of the iceberg. This is a huge problem
