The world of cricket has been rocked by allegations of match-fixing in the England vs Pakistan test series. The English Sunday tabloid newspaper, The News of the World, claims to have uncovered “the most sensational sporting scandal ever” involving a spate of deliberate no balls by Pakistani bowlers Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir. The video footage appears to be extremely damning.
From the News of the World website:
“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.
In the most sensational sporting scandal ever, bowlers Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif delivered THREE blatant no-balls to order.
Their London-based fixer Mazhar Majeed, who let us in on the betting scam for £150,000, crowed “this is no coincidence” before the bent duo made duff deliveries at PRECISELY the moments promised to our reporter.
Armed with our damning dossier of video evidence, Scotland Yard launched their own probe into the scandal.”
