Good things happen when the souls express them. Similarly, when cheating tendency is deep-rooted in a society -- all forms of evil express on a constant basis. (As feared by many) after the long history of association with Match-fixing, Doping, Murder probe (2007 World Cup), Injury feigning, Ball-biting, Ball altering, Betting, Pitch damaging, Religious exhibition during games, Organised crimes, Corruption and Cover-ups -- now a new 'Spot-fixing' cheating allegations are investigated by British police against visiting Pakistan Test Cricket team in England. Secretly filmed footage exposed one British-Pakistani bookmaker Majeed - who has 'managed' Pakistani cricket players over two years - accepting £150,000 (Bangladeshi Taka 16 crore) from a undercover journalist for guaranteeing 'no balls'. The allegations are related to 'no balls' delivered by Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif. ICC (International Cricket Council) and Scotland Yard are now investing the matter. No players or team officials have been arrested yet.
Cricket is a craze in Pakistan. Pak Test players are considered as role model heroes not only in Pakistan but also (for many youths) in Bangladesh and other countries. Pakistan cricket team cannot play international cricket at home due to the inability of its government to provide security. The country becomes a 'no-go-area' for international cricket. Other countries kindly allow Pakistani cricket team to play on their grounds.
Majeed revealed to police the cheating of Pakistan cricket players in the fourth and final Test against England at Lord's. Majeed admitted setting up Swiss Bank accounts for some players to hide their illegitimate money and "many players are desperate to take part in match fixing ... a lot of them are just looking for money, women and food". He claimed to 'manage' 10 players including Captain Salman Butt as the ring leader. Sad news!
