Yes, and we still shamefully watch cricket
Cheer Up!Cricket is a game and best watching when played honestly but have never watched it with dedicational spirits after aamar Sohail's exposure about match fixing. Many better activities are abundantly available for personnel of all taste.

Yes, and we still shamefully watch cricket

Yasir Hameed says, "I have been trying to win the match and some players wanted to lose the game",
I think this will change our attitude towards these players.

One may be the best player of the world and if he is not playing for the team and nation, he can go to hell irrespective of his abilities.
Good Bye Akmal Brothers and Asif.

Though Yasir Hameed Denied it but I am sure this statement is true as long these crookes


Though Yasir Hameed Denied it but I am sure this statement is true as long these crookes, Aamir, Aasif, Salman, Akmal Brothers,Mohammad Yousaf, Imran Farhat and Shoab Malik are cocerned.

FIA and NAB should also start investigation about the assets of these players and should prosecuted them in high Treason against coutry, so that next coming player should think 1000 time to attain call from any Bookie.

Following last weekend's match-fixing world exclusive, the News of the World is to reveal sensational new revelations over 18 pages of tomorrow's newspaper.

This includes:

* The News of the World publishing full details of the ENTIRE investigation starting in January this year including printing the transcripts of every meeting, conversation, email and text exchange.
* An explosive claim by a member of the Pakistan touring team that some of his team-mates ARE cheats. Opening batsman Yasir Hameed tells us bent teammates were fixing "almost every match". He said: "They've been caught. Only the ones that get caught are branded crooks.
"They were doing it (fixing) in almost every match. God knows what they were up to. Scotland Yard was after them for ages.
"It makes me angry because I'm playing my best and they are trying to lose."
* How the ICC are now probing a FOURTH Pakistan touring player over match-rigging claims. The News of the World is not naming this player for legal reasons.
* The three suspended Pakistan players face a staggering TWENTY THREE ICC charges between them - each charge runs to six pages.
* Exposing the rantings of the Pakistan High Commissioner who outrageously claimed that the News of the World had "set up" Salman Butt, Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif. CCTV evidence proves the meeting with fixer Mazhar Majeed took place before any "no balls" had been bowled. Dated receipts and emails also prove the money handover happened BEFORE the "no balls".
* Pakistan Captain Salman Butt was warned FIVE TIMES about his responsibilities to report any irregular contact with outside agencies. And investigators have recovered between 10,000 and 15,000 of marked News of the World bills from the Pakistan captain's hotel room.

Yaser Hameed is the whistler blower... courtesy News of the World... latest revelation

A PAKISTAN cricketer who played in the rigged Lord's Test has sensationally confirmed that there WERE cheats in his team.

Respected opening batsman Yasir Hameed claims bent teammates were fixing "almost every match".

And he provided a devastating insight into the shady world of betting scams, telling how he:

  • REFUSED bribes of up to 150,000 from a corrupt bookmaker to throw matches.
  • LOST his own place in the squad and saw his career damaged as a result.
  • WATCHED as crooked colleagues splashed out on plush properties and expensive sports cars funded by their illicit activities.
  • LEARNED that shameless players pocketed an astonishing 1.8million for rigging a Test match against Australia earlier this year.
Hameed, once rated amongst the world's finest batsmen, said of his scandal-struck colleagues: "They've been caught. Only the ones that get caught are branded crooks.

"They were doing it (fixing) in almost every match. God knows what they were up to. Scotland Yard was after them for ages.

"It makes me angry because I'm playing my best and they are trying to lose."

And, predicting the likely fate of the players exposed by the News of the World, Hameed added darkly: "The guys that have got done have got themselves killed.

"They're gone - forget about them."

Hameed's remarks will heap pressure on the ICC investigation and the preposterous defence thrown up last week by shamed Pakistan skipper Salman Butt, bowlers Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir and their Pakistan Cricket Board bosses.

Sipping white wine in a Nottingham hotel just two days after our revelations sparked a worldwide sensation, Hameed, 32, described how he became a victim of betting cartels' vengeance for refusing to fix games.

PLAYER: Yasir in 4th Test

"It's because of all these wrong things that I was outed, because I wouldn't get involved," he told our undercover reporter.

"If you sat here and said, 'I'm a bookie and I want you to fix the match tomorrow' - I've met lots of people like that in the past and I refused. They offered me handsome money.

"I could have come to see you in a Ferrari. They give you so much money that you can live out your dreams, buy a flash car.

"I've been offered huge amounts of money, up to 150,000."

"I wouldn't get involved. That's why I was out of the team for two years - two years! Now God has punished them. I played in the (Lord's) match. Even though I flopped, these guys have been caught out.

"Just look at my average. It's 38, 39 (runs scored per innings). Which player in the world has that average and is dropped?

"If I was playing for any other country, what would I be now? I'd be the team captain."

Hameed's record supports his case. He had a sensational start to his international career in 2003, scoring 170 runs in his first innings and another 105 in the second, against Bangladesh.

In his first 30 One Day Inter- nationals, he scored more runs than any other batsman. Yet despite that he has bounced in and out of the national team.

"The truth is I've never sold a match for Pakistan. I've always got by on legitimate money. I come from a middle-class hard-working family," he said. Hameed detailed how the lure of riches had led some of his comparatively poorly paid teammates to fall for the lure of match-fixers.

By contrast with the limited fees of around 2,000 a match, Hameed said the potential rewards for rigging games were huge.

Detailing the crooked price list of the match-fixers, he said: "The 150,000 (paid to Majeed) was just (a deposit) to show what would happen on this ball, what would happen on the other ball.

"In the future, imagine how much money they would have made. Imagine how many pounds they would have made!

RESPECTED: 'I've been offered 150k but I wouldn't get involved. Now God has punished them,' says Yasir Hameed

"He (Majeed) pays the players whatever the rate is. I think they get 20,000 or 25,000 for no balls. God knows what was the deal, I didn't ask."

Hameed asked why Asif - one of three players at the centre of the scandal who was last week suspended by the ICC - had been able to amass a big property portfolio.

"I'm having a house built and it's stopped halfway," said Hameed. "I'm building it from legitimate money and work has stopped.

"Asif - how many matches has he played and how many have I played? I've played 80 matches and he's played around 50. He has four mansions. Where did they come from?

"He has just built a house in Italian style in Lahore. You go there and you will think you are in Italy - that's how good his house is."

Hameed also dramatically claimed that another game had been thrown. Talking about fixed matches, he said: "The ICC Champion Trophy, Rose Bowl, we lost a match against West Indies, do you remember?" That was a semi-final game in 2004 at The Rose Bowl in Southampton.

The West Indies won the match by seven wickets despite posting just 132 runs. Pakistan capitulated to 131 all out.

The ICC's anti-corruption team may well now add the match to another they are investigating - January's farcical Test Match between Pakistan and Australia in Sydney.

Last week, we revealed how gloating Majeed bragged to our undercover team how they fixed the result.

"We let them (Australia) get up to 150 in the morning, and then everyone lost their wickets. That one we made 1.3 (million)."

Amazingly, Hameed claims Majeed underestimated the cash netted in the scam. He told us: "In the Sydney Test Match they made 1.8million - they gave away the match. I don't know how the money was divided up."

Of some agents who swarm around players, Hameed angrily told us: "There are agents but they are ******* bookies basically."

Turning to Mr Fix-it Mazhar Majeed - the lynchpin of the Lords scandal - Hameed spoke of his relief that he had given the crooked agent a wide berth.

"He had seven players. He didn't make me an offer and I didn't want to take a chance. I know what was going on."

But Hameed remains curiously loyal to shamed skipper Butt.

"He's a nice guy basically," he said. "I don't know why he's gone like this because of money."

Why is bloody government getting involved in all this and trying to defend those crooks?

The only reason I see is that the PCB officials are also involved in all this mess and if they don't try to stop this, all of them will be exposed.

Poora ka poora muashra hi corrupt hai. upar se le kar neechey tak.. I'm just devastated, aur allah sahi saza de raha hai humein!
