    Why on earth is Ronnie Flanagan running the show? How bizarre. Perhaps his experience of allegations of corruption will come in handy.

    Pakistan blames ICC President Sharad Pawar for ICC action against tainted trio

    The Pakistan High Commissioner to UK, Wajid Shamsul Hasan, has sought to insinuate that ICC president Sharad Pawar has a hand in that decision.



    Read Full Story - Pakistan blames Pawar for ICC action against tainted trio

    Really pathetic, Pakistan = Allegations, Conspiracy Theories.

    Wajid Shamsul Hasan Removed Asif Zardari Swiss Case Evidence in Geneva

    High Commissioner for Pakistan to the UK, Mr. Wajid Shamsul Hasan is dubious character, has no Integrity. All part of President Asif Ali Zardari's corruption.

    Why draggin India or Indians into it ? this is getting beyond joke now!

    Is there anything going wrong in Pakistan that is not linked to RAW/Mossad/CIA ?

    This crap is pathetic. It would be an absolute joke if the players were allowed to continue playing whilst they're under investigation.

    I wonder how the police have managed to prove that the video was made before the no-balls were bowled?

    Well, the ICC have suspended the three cricketers, so they won't be playing any cricket for now....

    The police haven't proved anything yet.

    But if it comes to proving it, they'll start with the content of the video itself, from which it's blindingly obvious that it pre-dated the no balls.

    They'll then see what Majeed has had to say, and what the players have had to say. The suggestions are that they're not going to deny that the tape was made before the no-balls. The police will also have evidence from the guy who made the video. There may also be electronic evidence demonstrating when the tape was made, and evidence from others at the paper who saw it prior to the day in question. But frankly given the contents of the video, you hardly need that additional stuff.

    It is just too unthinkable that they got this guy Majid to say all this AFTER events happened and set himself up to be prosecuted... As the saying goes, when you hear the hoofs beat, think of horses, not some avatar animals..

    Surely all the police have to do is to prove the date of the video as to whether the players are guilty or not...

    Yea it's a fairly common expression, been used on Scrubs I think. The usual saying is think horses not zebras.

    News repots are saying here that part of the £150k paid by the News of the World was found INSIDE some of Butts belongings when the police searched it

    Not looking good for him at all, he could be facing actual jail time if that sort of evidence is indeed true.

Unless the players' agent was setting them up in a way that was going to get himself in a world of trouble, which seems pretty implausible to me.

    There's some real clutching at straws going on here. Predictable, of course, but that's what it is: clutching at straws.
    you are getting your panties in a twist, this is not clutching at straws, this is asking for due process - there is no reason for the PCB to automatically accept the video, ofcourse it looks bad and the majority of people have made their minds up, none the less the issue of due process and verification remains....

    You do that behind closed doors. You don't ramble on it about it endlessly when confronted by the media, it's just utterly amateurish.
