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.

"The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
- Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

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.

Vimes tells it how it is:
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.
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.
In before "Strauss match-fixing scandal; 34 on 34th birthday horror shock money making scheme etc"
Tbh,around the 43rd over i predicted a tie to my mates who i was watching the match with.
One even offered to make a bet on it.
Do i get investigated for match fixing too?

All the arguing in the match thread was pre-arranged as well tbh
