    "Spot-Fixing wouldn't exist had Wasim Akram, Inzamam-ul-Haq been 'hanged'" : Abdul Qadir

    Legendary Pakistan leg-spinner Abdul Qadir has stunned cricket fans by indicating that former players Wasim Akram, Inzamam-ul Haq and Mushtaq Ahmed among others were all involved in match-fixing and had they been 'hanged', the menace of spot-fixing would not have existed in the country.

    Pakistan cricket was once again rocked by the spot-fixing scandal after several players were provisionally suspended for their involvement in the malpractice during the Pakistan Super League. Qadir, who was speaking on a TV show, claimed that Akram, Inzamam and Mushtaq were the 'bigger' culprits.

    "Had you hanged Wasim Akram, Inzamam, Mushtaq Ahmed - there's an entire list - instead of giving them a slap on the wrist, what's happening now would've never happened," a report in The Express Tribune quoted him as saying.

    Qadir, citing the two Pakistan players who were implicated in 2000 for match-fixing, said that Ataur Rehman and Salim Malik were mere scapegoats and questioned why Justice Malik Muhammad Qayyum's report on match-fixing wasn't enforced.

    "Ataur Rehman and Salim Malik were made the scapegoats, and even they would've escaped if they carried cricketing value or were in their prime. The way of our country is to nab the smaller culprit and let the bigger one go," Qadir added.

    "All of Wasim, Waqar, Inzamam and Mushtaq either currently work or have previously worked within the PCB. Why weren't the recommendations of Justice Qayyum's report enforced?"

    Pakistan batsman Shahzaib Hasan on Friday became the fourth player to be provisionally suspended and charge sheeted relating to the spot-fixing scandal in the Pakistan Super League.

    The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said that Shahzaib Hasan was given a 'Notice of Charge' and provisionally suspended him with immediate effect from participating in all forms of cricket. Sharjeel Khan, Khalid Latif and Mohammad Irfan are the other players that were suspended on similar charges.

    Interestingly, among the charges levelled against Shahzaib one is relating to trying to influence other players into spot-fixing.

    The PCB has already formed a three-member tribunal headed by a former judge Asghar Haider to probe into the charges against Sharjeel and Khalid.

    Shahzaib, who played for Pakistan in the 2009 World T20 in England, has made a name for himself thanks to his big hitting.

    Why is it nonsense? He is responding to Miandad's hypocritical comments.

    These guy were also mentioned in the Qayum report. Wasim was let off because of his status as a cricketer.

    Wasim was very very lucky because a certain powerful guy loved his bowling skills and got him away.

    So you mean Wasim also went to jail and was banned for 5 years as well?

    This is just blind hatred. Amir served the punishment for his mistake and then was brought back while Wasim was spared because he was too big a player at that time and Pak cricket would have declined much more rapidly without him. There is no comparison between the two.

    Wasim should have been banned for life as well. Letting him go because of his stature was an extremely wrong precedence. Amir of course should have been banned for life as well. However, it is important not to repeat those mistakes in the future.

    If I remember correctly Waqar Younis and Mushtaq Ahmed were involved in this as well.

    "Players should not let this scandal dampen their mood" : Abdul Qadir

    KARACHI: Former leg-spinner Abdul Qadir on Saturday suggested that Pakistan should focus on playing the series against West Indies rather than feel low because of the recent spot-fixing scandal during the second edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

    Pakistan take on West Indies in a four-T20I series starting Sunday at Bridgetown. For the record, the Men in Green have beaten their Caribbean counterparts on five occasions out of the seven times both teams faced each other in the shortest format.

    “Players should not let this scandal dampen their mood since they aren’t the ones who did anything wrong; the ones who did are being interrogated,” said Qadir. “They are going to represent the Pakistani flag [in West Indies]; they should do so with complete focus.”

    Strategy against Windies

    Pakistan last played T20Is in West Indies in 2013 at Kingstown where they bagged the two-match series 2-0 with a two-wicket and an 11-run victory.

    During the matches, spin-bowlers bagged 18 out of the total 31 wickets that fell and Qadir believes bowlers will have an important role to play this time around as well.

    “West Indies and Pakistan have nearly the same type of cricket mentality,” said Qadir. “Both teams are mercurial and can beat any opposition of their day. However, if we consider them on equal terms, both teams’ bowling performance will play a key role in deciding the winner.”

    Qadir also said that West Indies could have an advantage because of their fielding. “If we compare our fielding with theirs, they have a better unit. Their players are fit and strong and can take acrobatic catches, however, we do lack a bit in our catching and fielding department.”

    Sarfraz Ahmed, after being appointed captain in T20Is back in April last year, is going to lead the side in his first four-match T20I series and Qadir thinks he should receive strong support from everyone.

    “Sarfraz is one of the best finds of Pakistan cricket and needs to be groomed,” he said. “We should value him as a precious diamond. Most importantly, we need to make sure he does not face politics within the team. All the players, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and the think tank should support him in whatever he wants to achieve with the team. That is the only way of making him strong.”

    He further added: “He is the kind of person whom you can bet everything on and he will surely win for you.”

    While the PCB probes the PSL spot-fixing case against Islamabad United duo, Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif, the 61-year-old believes a few things could have been done differently to ensure nothing like this happened again.

    “The board never tries to control such things,” said Qadir. “Examples should be made out of the players who are found guilty fixing; they should be punished.”

    He explained that sending the players back from UAE was a mistake. “It was PCB’s mistake to send the players back to Pakistan. If they had enough evidence, as they claimed, they should have convicted them right then and there.”

    Qadir also seconded former Pakistan captain Javed Miandad’s claim of strict punishment for the players who are found guilty. “I back Miandad in saying that the players should receive strict punishments if they are proven guilty. The PCB should deliver the verdict on the players after investigation, but the Federal Investigation Agency should also sentence them.”

    Fix a match and lose your source of earning forever or get hanged.
    Kill a person and walk free after 20 years.

    Yup, sounds fair enough

    I do not think that it would have erased fixing for once and all but they do need to get punished. Some 'legends' are really lucky indeed.

    IF you really want to erase fixing in the country then professionalize your domestic structure with humane contracts instead of a 500 rupee per week agreement. You can ban anyone but it won't stop a poor fellow to earn some quick money for his family knowing he won't be a regular in the PSL or Pak team.

    The argument that Amir served his time and should be allowed back is HILARIOUS ( with capital letters).

    Doctors, Lawyer, Accountants, who ever commit crime, has to serve their time but then are never allowed to practice again. ( they only represent their respective boards, not their country).

    By same stretch, if an Army commander, becomes a traitor, charged and serves his time, would you allow him back to same position?

    Really when young generation selectively support national traitors, Sharif and Bhuttos will keep coming.

    Selective ethics in Pakistani society is amazing!!

    Agreed with Abdul Qadir.

    Things would have been different had we banned Waqar, Inzi, Wasim, Mushtaq and co.
