    tbh, have heard Warnie predict a tie in games a few times over the years. Considering his pub game, no surprise he'd operate on the theory that if you use the same line over and over, eventually it'll work.
    Interesting use of inverted commas around "tie" from Sohail too (and, yes, I'm aware of the irony in me having done the same, but in my case I'm quoting); it wasn't an alleged or supposed tie, it was an actual one.

    It's like McCarthyism on steriods just now; the slightest underperformance or mildly unusual result and it's denouncements all round.

    I'd personally like all Engalnd's ODI results from 1995 to now investigated. That a foundation cricket nation could be so crap without skullbuggery afoot is laughable.

    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.
    You know he isn't a player anymore right? And that he can bet legally on the game here?

    I hope he had ten grand on it.

    I'd assumed that this must be about an old game.

    Totally bemused as to how Warne can be match fixing a game he's legally allowed to bet on and hasn't taken part in. With Brumby on the parallels with McCarthyism. Seriously funny **** though.

    This trend of former Pakistani cricketers coming on air and giving their stupid opinions is really starting to piss me off. Ex players like Sohail, Basit Ali, Sarfraz Nawaz, Abdul Qadir etc all have nothing better to do and so they either start criticising our team or moan about something else. This time though they have gone too far by making a mountain out of a molehill.

    They need to learn from Imran, who generally encourages our team and steers clear of conspiracy theories.

    Not sure. You'd think if it was a combined tie/ no result market it would be 15-20. A tie alone, loads more you'd think.

    Really stupid article.
    Exactly, it is the same as using a throwaway comment about Liverpool v Man utd this weekend hoping both lose. Total non story and shows the paranoia in Pakistan cricket.

    Sarfaraz if IIRC has been throwing around match fixing allegations for fun for years now.

    He seems to either be paranoid about it mentally and not stable.

    I don't know why it is attentionworthy at all.

    Aren't they basically accusing all the England and India players of match-fixing as well? Would have though you would need pretty much everyone in on it to arrange a tie.
