    After the amir,asif fiasco i dont think any of the pakistani players would have thought of fixing in such a big encounter where there was tremendous srcutiny.

    If anyone was doing it,maybe it would have to be from one of the indians,but i doubt it,again because of the shame that would happen to the players if they were caught in such a big match


    Why do we fall?

    Hahahaha, I was one of those who posted in length and had lot of discussion with so many people that match was fixed..I remember getting warning from Mods not to discuss the match fixing.

    Let me add one more thing, the match was fixed at higher level and the money was made to distribute to the top level people.

    This is why I have always maintained that fixing is not limited to Aamir, Asif or Butt level, it is still going on and not limited to only Pakistan cricket.

    Cricket has become WWWF.

    Of course, sounds more "normal" now. I was wondering why there was no blame-Afridi tone in that earlier post of yours.

    I would rather say it was a friendly fixed between two Prime Ministers. One can assume that if Pakistan won, they would have to play in Mumbai and probably stay in the same hotel where terrorists attacked. Further, it would have been very very difficult to manage the security of our players. The body language of our players is another example where they dropped so many easy catches and the shot played by Hafeez was in my opinion was subspecies too.

    p.s. it’s just my opinion and I am sure many will be disagree

    The match in Mohali was not fixed, its just used as an excuse for the poor performance. Have all the performances against Ind in WC`s been fixed or that we just looked scared in WC matches. In 92 we only needed to chase around 220 and are you telling me that Miandad and Imran we in on it, or 2003 when we got marmalised by Tend where all the bowlers in on it. We have a mental blockage against Ind and until we win one we will continue to lose.
    BTW it was the same for Ind in Sharjah, the more they lost the more they looked scared and the more we hammered them.

    With 4 players having been sentenced to prison recently in the UK, and others mentioned in court under oath, we have conclusive proof that the game is crooked at both international and domestic levels. The question of course is whether these 4 players are the iceberg or merely the tip of the iceberg.

    I would suggest that you would have to be extremely naive to have faith it is the former.

    Reason there is no evidence, because everybody is getting their share of money from the IPL, not only players have been awarded the huge contracts, cricket boards have been awarded the series to play with India and make more money.

    Astonished how some people are finding solace in the pakistan loss because its fixing. Not at all believing a bookie's statements who is trying to lure domestic english cricketer...

    If India can loose all allmost all ODI's and 8 test matches in a row with out fixing just after WC..pakistan can drop 5 catches and loose with out fixing

    Have some pride and respect your players before you go along with a noise...and before there is actuall evidence..

    and India is a huge market..ofcourse bookies will be majority from india..its the duty of the boards and ethics of the players to not take money....India has corruption in every walk of life..so there will be bookies in India...as much as I like to see no corruption..routing out curroption from India will take lot of time and effort..easier way is educated and shield cricketers..which some domestic circles and international teams are failing in....

    I personally do not think mohali was fixed..nor was India losses afterwards with out a loss....And if it is fixed I guess dishonest ethicless players did not deserve to win there anyway..

    I agree fans shouldn't be finding solace in these accusations - its a Saleem Malik / Asif Iqbal kind of toss - heads we lose, tails you win. My own longheld view has been cricket is corrupt from the very top down to the bottom. This corruption can take many forms from political pressure for match fixing, gambling gangs taking advantage of spot fixing to who does and doesn't get picked.

    Mohali was almost definately fixed in regards all three. The boards and therefore Governments would have been involved and countless little spot fixing scams taken place throughout the game. However the fact that we were beaten by the bookies not the opposition is nothing to cheer about - the only loser, in the short term of all this, is us cricket fans - of all nations!

    One example - the Pak vs Bengali game WC 1999 that we lost - every Bengali restaurant owner client (my father is an accountant) told my father the game is fixed well before the game started!!! THEY BLOODY KNEW IT!!!!!!

    That KAMI!!!! How many games?? how many dropped catches/ missed runouts/ missed stumpings??

    Sorry to insult Indian fans, your team may have been playing the WC semi 2011 with the best intentions, but Misbah and Younus Khan's dropped catches?; Gul losing the plot when bowling??? Pak batting falling away (nothing new) during the chase???
    What do you mean?

    Letís be fair here navroks123.

    Indians found solace in the notion the SF between IND and SL in 1996 was fixed. 4 years later, Captain of India and a host of other Indian players were banned.

    Let's again be brutally honest here. With so much heat in the SC with respect to fixing (post Pak trio case), bookies will find other routes, thus English domestic cricket.

    Seriously, you need to park your dislike for Afridi for a moment and educate yourself on the science behind fixing.

    While a captain might be crucial in a fix, a captain is not always essential. Think Mervyn Westfield.

    Let's again be brutally honest here. With so much heat in the SC with respect to fixing (post Pak trio case), bookies will find other routes, thus English domestic cricket.
    And WC happened after the case... the point is bookie may be saying only to lure domestic cricketers saying it also happens in intl scene.

    And No,we do not find solace in India 1996 match if it was fixed...even when kambli accused many people were against him...and loosing after sachin was our trademark back then..be it 1996 SF or 1999 chennai..

    Its high time few people should stop the childish act. Its always called as t20 WC and is logical as well.
    Champions trophy is considered as equivalent to mini wc, cuz 50-50 over's WC already exists.

    Do you have an explanation for not taking power play as a captain when he came to bat?

    We did not loose the game because of drop catches, the score was quite easy to chase, it was batting and poor captaincy that cost us the game.

    If Pakistan won T20 cup does not make it into world cup, just go and read in Wikipedia about the world cup and you will find out the difference.

    According to ICC, there is only one world cup of cricket and that is 50 over cup, not 20 over cup.

    You keep telling that to yourself.

    Tendulkar has nothing to do with this. No one is pointing a finger at SRT in case you are worried.

    Fixing 101 lesson : it takes a few players to cost a match, not all 11.

    Of all the Indian Cricket fans I have spoken to, they believe the SF in 96 was fixed.

    Mohammad Azharuddinís decision to field first sealed it.

    Of course at the time Indians would not entertain the notion of fixing, again, 4 years on. Indian players were banned for fixing.

    Please do not pretend Indian cricket and players alike are squeaky clean.

    Pakistan vs India is not just a cricket, it's politics!

    You might as well ask why Afridi didn't hit a 6 when he came into bat!

    There are countless incidences of where a team does not take a PP but leaves it till the last moment. It's called Hindsight.

    I am not, 1996 WC can be very well be fixed..not even surprised if it is. And I am not worried abt srt..was just saying loosing after srt goes from winning position was our trademark back then..and this is also one of the matches which followed the popular script. I am not saying Indians are clean..even in the recent Cairns investigation..Dinesh mongia seems to have played a crucial role..

    Pakistan has never been a great fielding side, that was not the first time we dropped catches.

    You were expecting Indian side to score 120 runs?

    Care to explain to me what was the reason for not taking power play by the captain at crucial moment?

    Your basis on calling it a crucial moment is HINDSIGHT!

    Care to explain to me why you believe Afridi was in on 'it' even though SRT was dropped TWICE off Afridi's bowling? Considering catches at any stage are always deemed crucial - HINDSIGHT not necessary!

    As for Pakistan never being a great fielding side, Pakistan are known to be one of the greatest bowling sides, and had SRT been caught, the match was in the bag.

    You are making an assumption if Sachin would have caught by Pakistani fielders, match would have been in the bag based on HINDSIGHT

    Yes India only had one batsman Sachin and rest of the players would have scored the same amount of runs which they scored in the scorecard of the match ( based in cricinfo scorecard) , genius assumption ( no HINDSIGHT involved what so ever)

    No point speculating but their were certain points of the match that casted doubts at the time and still do.

    The trio getting jailed will ensure no player fixes in England but the same cannot be said about matches in Asia.

    Masala news, India won pretty much fair and square. The ICC and corruption Unit should stop speculating about past games, if they were fixed we just need to get over it and stop speculating. Its time to make sure that future games can't be targeted. Looking at past games gets us nowhere.

    Once again, cut out the rather immature naming of individual players and turning it into Player A versus Player B thread.

    The most important thing is that the ICC investigate this thoroughly and either launch proceedings against those players or make their investigations and if they cannot find anything then state that the players are clear.

    Yea Pakistanis are involved per this statement in the article, as we know they are the main stay at the IPL...


    Another bookmaker claimed that he had worked with players from most of the main cricketing nations to fix games, but that he had turned down the chance to work with New Zealand players because it was not worthwhile with more lucrative match-fixing opportunities on offer in the IPL. "I was invited to strike a deal with some New Zealanders but I didn't go," he said. "The IPL starts on April 4; then everyone will be doing it."
