    To me this is actually good news (if true). It suggests the people behind fixing are getting sufficiently desperate.

    Umpires can only effect a match by so much, and thats becoming even less with the appeal system now.

    Edit: On readthrough, this is all based on a TV sting, so forget my previous comments. In that case it just illustrates some non-international umpires being desperate for some cash. And from the sounds of things the sting itself is very fishy, pretty much entrapment.

    This is what I also read.'

    Also, how credible is India TV as a news source?
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Not very but I doubt they would have made these claims if there wasn't a little truth in it. That would make them look even more ridiculous.

    Not surprising, and not very difficult, especially if it's done at a level below the international level.
