    What a disgrace for Cricket....Shame on them

    THE News of the World has smashed a multi-million pound cricket match-fixing ring which RIGGED the current Lord's Test between England and Pakistan.

    Lol @ NOTW sensationalising headlines and licking their own balls:

    "In the most sensational sporting scandal ever, bowlers Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif delivered THREE blatant no-balls to order. "

    Is getting two bowlers to step over a line three times really the 'most sensational sporting scandal ever'? I think not.

    Speechless.. oO

    Talk about blowing things out of proportion lol.

    As above, it's not RIGGED, the only accusation is 3 no balls. Hardly a match changing element, it's not as if the whole team had to get out for under 100, it's bad don't get me wrong, but nothing has been proven.

    It is still bad news however you look at it, so called sport is fast becoming farcical.

    Sport has always been like this, just because its just become a News Headliner doesn't mean it's new.

    It has always been like this, even back in days most sports were fixed from boxing to football!! The fact you never heard about it doesn't mean it never happened

    This is a real shame if true. Even more so when you consider Mohammad Amir may be one of the guilty parties. What I've seen him do with the ball at such a young age makes him arguably the best prospect in cricket at the moment.

    Can you believe Amir came out smiling,

    There are no degrees of cheating-a cheat is a cheat end of story. Just because this is only 3 no balls is irrelevant.

    IF(and I stress if) this is true-then at least 4 players out of 11 must be involved-the 2 bowlers,the captain(in order to gurantee who bowls a certain over) and the wicket keeper(if signals were sent by him asking for a change of gloves).

    Also,again,if true,its perfectly possible that another syndicate bought the match result,or batting collapse.

    Notw sensationalise everything yes,but this is SERIOUS-how can you ever believe the validity of anything that happens if this is going on?

    To say it isnt "rigged" isnt my view-anyone prepared to take money to perform in a certain under par way is a cheat.

    Of course it has been going on for years and many people havent been caught-frankly,Im surprised that anyone meets reporters in hotel rooms and takes bags of cash anymore-hardly very clever is it? You would think these idiots would be looking for bugs and cameras by now.

    I wondered how England was doing so well during this series

    In all seriousness, any kind of cheating is bad for sport and anyone found guilty of doing so should be banned from playing for a while.
