Hmm - drip feeding the rest of the media eh?
Not that I'm suggesting the NOTW would do anything wrong but how many copies of tomorrows paper will they sell that wouldn't have been sold otherwise - 100,000? more?
Then there will be follow ups next week and for a few weeks thereafter and more sales and, presumably, advertising
Would be a real bargain to bung some random 35 year old Pakistani gentleman a few quid to make these allegations
.... but a journal with the integrity of NOTW would never do that, of course
BBC News now reporting the same,this could turn out to be something very dark for cricket,the names being mentioned are very disappointing if true.
I don't see how you could make such allegations with absolutely nothing behind them and get away with it frankly.
Surely the NOTW must have genuine stuff to back up what they're reporting or it's slander of the highest order, surely?
Well if he gets convicted what then?

Have to say I posted in the series thread about Aamer's no ball at the time, saying something like it was the biggest one I've seen.
NotW wouldn't be naming names unless they were on fairly solid grounds, would they?
Really don't know what to hope for the best.

"The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
- Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change
What a great day today has been for the Pakistan team
"I want to raise my hand and say one thing. Those who complain about my love for the game or commitment to the game are clueless. These are the only 2 areas where I give myself 100 out of 100."
