    New Zealand bowlers in match-fixing scandal.



    From Yahoo.

    Disgraceful IMHO.
    - As featured in The Independent.

    "Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."
    - The Guardian's Andrew Anthony

    "They bring in their hot shot lawyers. What do we do? Hire a QC? It's just bull****," Lawson told the news agency on Friday.
    Hahahaha, his plan to "just deny everything" strikes me as an absolutely sound idea as well, what a wonderful sounding chap.

    Gary Lawson is a bit of a ****, all told. Was in and out of the NZ teams due to having a crack at the administrators. He's also been waging a war against NZ Thoroughbred Racing after his wife, jockey Judy Lawson was left in hospital for months with head injuries after a fall at a racecourse, so he's had other things on his mind for the last few years. But he would have come out with his abrasive comments regardless of his wife's accident - he's just that kind of person.

    And why would a NZ team throw a match when in all likelihood we probably just choked as usual anyway.

    I didn't know there was money to be made in throwing bowls matches.
