    From what I can gather so far.

    This Mazhar Majeed guys gave Pakistani players $150,000 to bowl 3 no balls.

    That's not his only work however.

    It seems that the Sydney Test match was fixed, an ODI in Asia cup had some spot fixing, and the upcoming ODI series had 2 ODIs fixed.

    They made 1.2m from Sydney Test match.

    The guy has known Pakistan team for 2 and a half years, so there are potentially more games that were fixed.

    This is obviously seems to be quite a big scandal considering the amount of people involved and the number of games that are under the scanner.

    Obviously this is disgraceful and the players involved should get the minimum bans they deserve. Certain players need to really be banned for life - Kamran Akmal, Salman Butt - in particular as the two seem to be leading the mafia.

    Btw, the mafia here consists of Butt, the Akmals, Umar Amin, Wahab Riaz, Malik, Asif, Amir and potentially more players. These guys conspired to remove YK from captaincy and also were looking to remove Afridi from ODI and T20 captaincy since neither would take their ****.

    Some interesting claims flying so far and they make sense.

    The two ODIs that were going to be thrown in the upcoming series so that Afridi could lose his captaincy and SB could replace him.

    There are questions as to whether the ODI and Test series in 2009 against Sri Lanka and the ODI series against New Zealand were thrown to remove YK from captaincy. Remember that Pakistan lost the two games in the test series from quite dominant positions and same in one of the ODIs against New Zealand.

    Clearly the mafia seems to be quite big. These fucktards really need to go for making a mockery of cricket.

    What a disgrace.

    Cricket in the dock as we expose match fixing scandal | England Pakistan Test | News Of The World

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

    NOTW rarely get it wrong with the filmed stings like this.

    It's all over Sky News, BBC, Cricinfo.

    IT'S A DEAL: Satisfied Majeed puts money back in case

    Majeed identified young Pakistan captain Salman Butt as the ringleader of the band of cheats. He also named wicket keeper Kamran Akmal and boasted he had a total of SEVEN corrupt cricketers in his pocket, all banking huge sums from bookies and betting syndicates.

    The scam, fuelled by greed, is a betrayal by the players not only of their sport but of their cricket-crazy homeland.

    As millions back home in Pakistan struggle against hunger and disease amid devastating floods, the cheats were defiling the reputation of Lord's and lining their own pockets.

    Majeed said he had even opened Swiss bank accounts for them to hide their ill-gotten gains. These guys won't deal with just anybody. The only reason they'll deal with me is because they know I'm professional, they've known me for years.

    "I've been doing it with them, the Pakistani team, for about 2½ years. And we've made masses and masses of money."

    Later that night Majeed boasted how it was the players who got HIM into match-fixing. He told us: "The players would never tell anybody else. They were the ones who actually approached me about this. This is the beauty of it.

    "I was friends with them for four, five years and then they said this happens. I said really?"

    I still cant believe what I am reading, Pakistan cricket has died a horrible death today.

    Dont these players have any shame? no self respect?

    All charity drama, when they give with their right they are earning far more from their 'left'. People dying in Pakistan due to a major catastrophe and these muppets are pulling stunts like this, that too in month of Ramadan.

    No wonder this lot wanted to get rid of Younis Khan, the man with the most dignity.

    I feel sad, Mohd Asif I know was very good bowler, in-fact he was named best after Wasim. Why he does all this instead of playing, last time he was involved in drugs. Other guys I know not much since off late I have stopped watching cricket and only see scores after match ends, that to limited to India. Pakistan produces talented fast bowlers but these guys are not really doing good service to nation.

    Pak cricketers just want money, women, food: Bookie




    LONDON: A lot of Pakistani cricketers are "just looking for money, women and food" and very few of them have any love for the game, claims the bookie arrested for alleged 'spot-fixing' in the England-Pakistan Test.

    Mazhar Majeed, the bookie who has made sensational claims of bribing Pakistani cricketers for bowling no balls in a sting operation by a British tabloid, claimed a lot of players were only bothered about money.

    "You'll find there's only a few players who are genuine and who are actually here for the love of the game, and there's not many believe me. A lot of them are just looking for money, women and food," Majeed has been quoted as saying in the video tapes of the sting released by 'The News of the World'.

    "How much they're getting paid is a joke. I came from a football background and I can see the difference in football and cricket. It's huge.

    Majeed claimed cheating was not confined to match-fixing alone and that ball tampering had also become regular in the Pakistan team.

    "I used to go out on the pitch to give the players their drinks. Whenever we couldn't get a wicket I'd have a lump of Vaseline on my hand. Shake their hand.

    "They'd put it on one side of the ball and the ball would suddenly start in-swinging," he said.

    Majeed revealed that he wanted Salman Butt to continue as captain for long as possible.

    "I give out the information the night before or morning. What's going to happen at the end of the fourth day. But now we are not going to do any results for the next two games because we want Salman Butt to be captain long term," Majeed stated.

    Without the involvement of Chairman board Ejaz butt all of this is not possible.I think he himself is "Organizing" all of this fixing.
    Even After the concerns raised by ex players and the demand of strong action against this,he didn't done anything & even he didn't let the tribunal to work.
    He didn't lift the ban on YK.
    On each&every tour he goes there to MANAGE the things.
    He Immedeatly accepted the retirement of Afridi.

    & the worst thing is that even after the strong demand of removing him from chairmanship of PCB,Ghaddari is still not doing anything against him.

    Afridi came out and claimed that he knew about the match fixing and spoke to PCB about it and PCB did nothing.

    From the looks of it, parts of the PCB or all of the PCB was involved in this as well. Ijaz Butt consistently denied having YK in the team so you're almost certain that Ijaz Butt is involved as well.

    Salman Butt & Kamran Akmal seem to be confirmed. It is unsure how Aamer and Asif were dragged into this..if they truly were.
