Cricket serial offender Pakistan should be thrown out

An analysis in the Herald Sun has opined that Pakistan is a serial offender when it comes to playing the gentlemens game of cricket, and that it is time to crack the whip and throw all cheats of that country out.


Melbourne, Sep.3 : An analysis in the Herald Sun has opined that Pakistan is a serial offender when it comes to playing the gentlemen's game of cricket, and that it is time to crack the whip and throw all cheats of that country out.

The author of the analytical piece recalls that over 25 years ago, a Pakistan cricket captain had told a handful of Australian journalists, over a farewell drink in a Perth hotel room, that he was the first skipper of his country in years who had not instructed the home umpires to cheat.

He claimed how some of his predecessors would, when the situation required it, direct the umpires to give Pakistan favourable decisions on lbws and caught behinds - not outs when Pakistan was batting, out when the visitors were at the crease.

Today, the analysis says the issue has become even more insidious - allegations of players accepting bribes to deliver windfalls to shady characters and illegal bookmakers.

Pakistan, the report says, has been exposed as an ICC cricket member whose players can possibly be bought to deliver anything from a specified no ball to a fixed Test match. The Test against Australia in Sydney last year still has large question marks over it.

The Pakistan Cricket Board has already suspended captain Salman Butt and bowlers Mohammad Aamer and Mohammad Asif after they were accused of "spot fixing" by News Of The World during the current tour of England.

But that's not enough. As a full ICC member, Pakistan does not believe in respecting the spirit, or the laws of the game, says the author, and therefore, throwing the cheats out, is long overdue.
