    To make an analogy, if I plagarize or make up only one line in a scientific paper: A) I will never publish again, and B) that paper would be completely removed, and all most past papers would be scrutinized and under suspicion.

    I don't see why this Test should be allowed to stand.

    True.

    Still, all involved players must be banned for life. I agree with what you are saying, but this can't be given as an excuse.

    Well, it's not like anyone will disagree on bans for life, etc......

    Were any of the matches that Azharuddin and Cronje were found to have fixed wiped from the records?

    Gutted about the news that Amir is involved, however I'd be completely in favour of a life ban from the sport for all involved.

    I don't think so, but they should be.

    Cricinfo understands from a source close to the investigation that a sum of 25,000 was found in the room of one of the Pakistan players, with further sums of 3000-4000 found on two other players. The source also confirmed that Mazheer was known to the team, but in an informal capacity.

    I'm not convinced it's about equity or fairness. It's not really about Pakistan players being paid less than English or Australians. It's just that they're paid so much less than they could make from match-fixing.

    If you read some of the other articles on the NOTW website they've published tonight there are allegations that go much further than just the current test match and 'just' no-balls. The reporter asked the guy they pulled the sting on about previous match-fixing and betting and he brings up the Sydney test this winter where a certain player who has been named made a few 'mistakes'. Obviously can't be 100% proven as there is no direct video evidence as there is with the no-balls in this test, but still...

    The guy also alleges that Afridi was disliked by the players because he was 'too honest' and that his syndicates have decided to stop fixing matches because they like the current captain and don't want him to lose the job so soon.

    This is just repeating some of what has been published on the NOTW site, and I have tried to be suitably vague but if the mods feel this has to be deleted for libel protection reasons then I understand.

    Feel bad for Trott and Broad now. Even if the game isn't taken from the record, a massive taint on their day+ of hard work and graft, through no fault of their own.
    Or something.

    If you make a million dollars from salary, you're much less likely to accept $100k for match fixing and ruin your future.

    If you make $50k from salary...that $100k looks a lot more tempting.

    Interesting point, that.
