The same one subject to Pakistan fixing allegations, yes.
they'd have an investigation covering about 30% of matches from the early 90s onwards.
missing the point much?!
If England are paid to collapse they must be minted
It's been a torrid summer for them, and they fight and battle and guile and earn a hard fought victory over England.
And then your board chairman comes out and says the oppo threw the game
that the problem with pakistani cricket is not the cricketers but the administration. they're an unmitigated disaster.
the only good thing that can come out of this is butt getting fired.
Butt is the one I feel most sorry for, even if he is guilty. I'm basing this purely on his post-match interviews, because he's seemed like a nice bloke in those.
i meant ijaz, the chairman. the administration has completely failed first its captains and now its players, and butt's rambling accusations against england are just a last ditch attempt to distract people from this.
If Butt honestly believes this, he should have done the responsible thing and taken his evidence to the ECB and ICC rather than blab to the press.
just blustering hot air, made a complete fool of himself.
