    Really struggling to get my head round this whole situation. Find it hard to believe that Amir would be willing to take a measly 20k to bowl a few no balls and jeopardise his entire career.
    As some of the links over the last few pages show, this is a much bigger issue than it appears on the surface and looks to be running a lot deeper than the Pakistan cricket team or even just the PCB.
    This could only be the beginning of the discoveries in terms of the circumstances that led to Amir's no balls and the corruption currently surrounding the Pakistan national side.

    Frankly it's ****ing nuts, and the fact the tour is continuing can only make the situation more difficult surely?

    Please tell me that someone on bail facing allegations such as this was not allowed to play while the matter is dealt with.

    Haddin was on the radio here this morning. He confirmed all that and also said he was in his room ona tour of England when a bloke knocked on his hotel room door at 11 pm, he was from the subcontinent. He asked Haddin out for dinner, said he wanted to talk cricket and just said he would buy him dinner.

    Haddin closed the door in his face and contacted team management, apparently.

    Bizarre, scary too.

    But he should have had a feed with Sachin, that's just rude.

    All these reasons being given for why a player from pakistan would take cash just make it more obviously they shouldn't be playing international cricket to me. If it's all so shady and so much crime involved the solution isn't to be lenient its to not put them in a position to corrupt the game and ban them until it's all sorted out. A new crop of players will just turn out the same and in another 5 years it'll be another match fixing scandal.

    Sky Sports News has been reshowing the fluffs Kamran Akmal made in the Sydney test earlier this year. I knew they were bad at the time, but had forgotten just how appallingly shocking the Hussey run-out miss was. With what has been revealed it is now really difficult for me to not believe that something very dodgy was going on in that match.

    Pakistan Cricket needs help from ICC not a ban.
    Of course if they were banned from international cricket, there would be no reason for the bookies/kidnappers to take an interest in them.

    Probably sounds cold, but realistically there's nothing the ICC or world cricket can do to fix the kind of issue Lawson describes. Letting them play doesn't sound like it is particularly helping the guys in the Pakistan team (other than the ones corruptly getting rich) and it's seriously damaging the sport.

    Cricinfo calling upcoming matches "fixtures" has suddenly taken on a whole new meaning.

    No. These sort of completely unfounded statements do nothing at all for the conversation and are completely inappropriate. Consider this a warning.

    You're more than welcome to express your feelings, but you're definitely not welcome to claim that everyone posting in this thread hates Pakistan and the Pakistani people, especially when it's clear that that is miles away from the truth. Saying that the Pakistani cricket team is a mess and drastic action needs to be taken in no way equates to saying that we hate Pakistan.
