    All i'm saying is that carry out a routine investigation,announce that there was no malpractice and lay the issue to rest.

    The ICC has already gone through the match fixing shake recently,so why leave the lid on this open?Close it a.s.a.p and move on,or someone will bring it up in the future when something remotley similar happens.
    It's not even an issue that the ICC should even consider. A pointless investigation will prove nothing and is a complete waste of resources.

    Where do you draw the line? Warne predicts a tie. It happens. Another commentator predicts Malinga to take 5. It occurs. Someone predicts Australia to beat New Zealand with ease. Result.

    Not worth any ICC involvement.

    It was equally ridiculous to read the claims of Watson/Haddin spot fixing the first 10 overs of the Zimbabwe match. A guy can't spend the first few overs of his innings getting his eye in without getting accused of spot fixing now? Very sad that cricket has been reduced to this.

    Even though Warne no longer plays cricket, he still controls the results of every match via twitter. What power this man has.

    Maybe they need to investigate the 2006-7 Ashes series. After all, Glenn McGrath predicted it would be 5-0. and Englands batting collapsed suspiciously easily on more than one occasion.......

    The problem is that they cost money. Lots of it. Even a fairly routine inquiries will cost thousands. Why bother on rumour/gossip? It's not even technically an accusation. If there was other info that Warnie was throwing $ around betting on anything, that's a different story of course.

    It's just so cowardly, Aamer and Sarfraz aren't even willing to make a complaint or actually accuse him, they're just pissing in the ears of journos. Has the faint whiff of nationalism about it too with Sohail's dig against India. If they honestly thought there was something to it instead of moaning that the poor Pakistanis seem to be getting picked on all the time, put the complaint in writing and your name/reputation on the line and follow-through. At the very least, some info to prompt an investigation beyond "What happened was unusual." Put up or shut up, basically.

    Yes, the match was fixed and Warne did not get his share. So he made it public before the start of the match

    I'd argue that Warnie suggested a tie because he didn't want either England or India getting the two points from the game. Kind of like asking for a scoreless draw in afl.

    Really stupid article.

    How long before this is used against Warne in the Warne vs Murali thread?
