    Mate, I'm pretty sure I speak for everyone when I say the real victims of this are Pakistan cricket fans. Feel so sorry for you guys.

    This also casts a massive shadow over the coming ODIs and T20s - will they be played? Will the ECB be left monumentally out of pocket? What is going through these people's minds?

To do this at the best of times is criminal, but to do so when your country is being ravaged by floods and torn apart by political unrest is just utterly and completely grotesque.

    This test match shouldn't be cut short; it should continue. Let the Pakistani players play their final test in full gaze of the braying media and fans. Let the boos echo throughout Lords. Cheats and liars deserve no respect.

    Lifetime ban for everybody involved. That includes Aamir, unfortunately.
    Yeah, Pakistan are in for a huge hammering, and it will be interesting to see what kind of reception Amir gets when he bats.. I assume his name is already on the honours board as well.. As tragic as this is, tomorrow is going to be compelling..

    You can't possibly play those now, can you?

    Majeed then explained that the third no ball would come in the first over that teen wonder boy Amir got to deliver to an England right- hander, after one of the opening two left-handers had been dismissed.

    Just to convince us Amir was on side Majeed telephoned the young star at his hotel. "Are you sleeping f***er?" he asked crudely. Amir confirmed that's what he was trying to do.

    "Ok, sleep," said Majeed. "We've spoken about everything before anyway. Ok, don't mind. You sleep'."

    Call me a bleeding heart liberal but I'm not sure I share the general appetite for dishing out a life ban to an 18 year old.

    Having said which, the question of whether he is in fact 18 is itself open to some doubt.

    So you think Pakistan will entirely pull out of the tour?

    I would be in favor of banning Pakistan from cricket for the rest of the year at a minimum.

    There were a lot of murmurs at the time, don't think anyone can now say with a straight face that that match was legit.

    Also it now explains why there was so much in fighting with captains and why a guy like Younis Khan didn't last very long.

    Really feel for the Sri Lankan players who risked their lives to play these ****s.

    Can we afford not to play them with 100,000 spectators paying 50 a punt? We can't have a 5m black hole in the accounts... World XI time??

    I wouldn't want to put any money on it, if you'll excuse the expression, but I don't rate this match-fixing character as a witness of truth, that's all - and he had plenty of motive to make this up
