    Inclined to agree. Frankly insulting to all the honest sportsmen who take on better paid opponents too.

    Take the football world cup, if memory serves one of the NZ players was a semi-pro who supplemented his income by working in a bank. Yet they still managed to hold the (then) world champions, each one of whom I'd guess earns more in a week than he pulls in PA.

    Would also suggest throwing money at the dishonest is a pretty ****ty way of ensuring their honesty too.

    Sadly, yeah. Where one had assumed incompetence at the time, it now looks like something rather darker.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "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

    Indeed. Peter Ingram still has his job as a teacher at my old school, and will probably only leave it if he gets a national contract.

    But we're a lot further away from these syndicates I suppose, so there is a bit less pressure.

    Though someone tried it on Fleming a few years back. Shook him up a bit and he went straight to team management.

    Would things improve if Imran Khan took control of the PCB again?

    No, what makes you think Imran is the answer as an administrator? His career in politics hasn't been that great has it?

    I wouldn't think the Pakistan set up needs the cult of personality thing on top of everything else.

    Particularly when Imran spends so much time promoting that cult himself.

    The News of the world is a disgusting newspaper, wouldn't be surprised if it was completely made up. Cricketing wise though this is quite sad if true.

    He was practically a dictator in Pak cricket during his playing days and had the best interests of the team in heart. Just posted what came to my mind at the time.

    So they made up the Gary Glitter stuff,the Sven meeting with an Arab etc....

    These stings they do are generally very reliable.It is other parts of the newspaer reporting team that make stuff up.

    Apparently, Afridi has come out in the open saying that he quit test cricket because of rampant matchfixing.

    Bit rich of him to say that now.

    Come on, CDM. I know you like to take the contrary view occasionally just to spice things up, but which part of the video footage do you think is made up?

    Afridi - one disgrace to the game slags off another.

    Probably the cricketer who, more than any other, epitomises the game plunging the depths of instant gratification in lieu of any meaningful substance.
