    I am now going to bet every time a batsman changes gloves or taps the pitch with his bat.
    This was a serious post:

    Sorry - whoosh.

    In other news, I should point out that "facetious" is an outstanding word, given its noble combination and ordering of vowels.

    uninteresting tidbit-
    Was reading up on the history of cricket not too long ago and it's interesting to note that one particular academic attributed the rise of professionalism in cricket to the interest that the bookies had in the game.

    Again a shameful act by Pakistani Cricketer, even the youngsters who just started their carrier.

    Derek Birley in The Willow Wand? A great book that should offer any despairing cricket fans a bit of valuable perspective in the current circumstances.

    I suppose if somebody came up to you and offered $150k to bowl a no-ball, which to the average person, would just look like a regulation no-ball that just happens in a game, and something nobody would think twice of, I can see why they might be tempted.

    I highly recommend The Willow Wand - best cricket book I've read.

    In the 70's whenever we played India the TMS commentators used to speculate every morning about what colour patka Bedi would wear - we can now see what a missed opportunity for dear old Bish that was - 'appen its why he's always so grumpy

    Depends what other evidence is there except for this sting. Butt seems the man who is going to take the most slap.But lets not just depend on a sting by the NOTW.For all we know BUTT might have refused the bookie and he could be trying to frame them or just boast to the NOTW reporter who went their as a fixer.
    Nah, this would have to be one of the easier cases to prove, frankly. Provided the clip can be proven to pre-date the game.

    It beggars belief it's a coincidence, and as for the idea any of the players is trying to frame the bookie, please. Why the no-balls then? Why wouldn't the captain go to the authorities before play?

    Nah mate, this stinks to high heaven.

    In fact, it's so bad I reckon the PCB will suspend the players for at least 6 weeks.
