agree re:Javed he can be many things but match fixing is not something I would associate him with.
Javed is the guy who told Imran on the eve of WC1992 final that around 3-4 of his batsmen he suspects have fixed the game and are going to throw there wicket away. Based on this info Imran acted to promote himself ahead of all others with Miandad to setup that match winning partnership.
People say a lot of things about Miandad being this or that, but as far as my understanding is as a devout Pak cricket follower Miandad has never been even implicated in match fixing scandals let alone being down right part of it.
Be VERY AFRIDI!!

Friends, I've started a group for all the WCL fans on facebook. So, who ever is interested pls join... Search "Non-Test Cricket Playing Nations!" in facebook. Thanks...
Cricket Is The Best Sport On Earth, It Deserves More Respect, More Partispating Nations & More Fans. Lets Do Our Best To Spread The Game, Friends.
It is a bit like Bangladesh beating that joke of a West Indies side recently. On paper, it was a test series win against an established side; but in reality, it was a test series win against a team full of newbies.
It is high time to have a Extended Asia cup with 8 teams. The 8 teams can be
or atleast have a 6 Nation South Asia Cup.
Make it round robin. It will be hugely popular everywhere
But at the same time it is also true that the event itself in terms of cricketing competitiveness was lacking because the 1st choice teams did not participate. Nevertheless, the domestic players who are at the verge of national selection for the national sides or the players who have already played international cricket participating in the tournament i.e. Khalid Latif from Pak should have made the difference.
I think Pak still had enough strength to beat any side in this tournament and were hard to be beaten by Afghanistan. Therefore, it is not a mean achievement on Afghanistan's part to actually thump Pak...
I see cricinfo are running a poll at the moment:
Should India have taken part in the Asian Games cricket event?
* Yes, even if they'd sent a team of juniors
* No, the calendar is overcrowded anyway
* The Asian Games is better as a training ground for non-Test countries
It will be interesting to see the results...
