    Jeez. Used to have a soft spot for Ashraful even though he was ridiculed so much. WAC.

    Always liked Ashraful, probably because his career reminded me of Frank Hayes' - it doesn't any more

    That he could still sell underperformances to betting syndicates speaks of a wonderful optimism in Bangladesh.

    Since when did Ashraful stay long enough at the crease to fix anything?

    At least he's not being a **** about it. Good on him, just gotta accept the punishment like a man.

    This explains everything, he's been selling under-performances for years, must be richer than Bill Gates.

    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

    Genuinely disappointed by this news. The other players and officials involved in fixing up until now have all been ****s who I wouldn't piss on if they were on fire. But I liked Ashraful. Very disappointed.

    Obvious troll is obvious, it's not bookmakers in England inducing players to throw matches.

    Unfortunately only when the other countries can make enough money so India aren't as critical. Even Australia's latest TV rights deal relies a lot on the Indian market buying their rights.

    These illegal bookies are such ****s. Just legalise and regulate ffs.
