“Cheats.”

published 01/09/2010

Caught

Cover up

Well what a weekend, cricket such a dramatic game partly because of those gaps in-between the day's play, the Lords test a perfect example of that, the game smashed apart by the match-fixing allegations. Four years ago on the last Pakistan tour of England; of course, the visitors would infamously...

“A Strong Pakistan Team”

published 20/11/2000

Strong Spinning team, good batsmen

Missing Shoaib Akhtar

When England last played in a test series in Pakistan the series was most famously remembered for the disgraceful confrontation between England captain Mike Gatting and local Test umpire Shakoor Rana. Whilst that incident had the positive development in the use of independent umpires it partly...

Javed Miandad's tenure as Pakistan cricket team's coach has been extended until the 2003 World Cup. Miandad, 43, took over as coach after Pakistan lost two Tests in the home series against Sri Lanka last March. Pakistan won the last Test against Sri Lanka in Karachi with Miandad as coach and then...

All the players.

Fielding not as a good as the rest.

I believe the Pakistan team is all set for the 2003 world cup. In players 1 to 11 and the subs you can see there is quality all round. 1 Saeed Anwar:- A world class player who has every shot in the book and who can play all through the innings. A very dangerous man. 2 Shahid Afridi:- A young and...

can demolish any team

too risky

Having witnessed the latest case of a team being 'Afridi-ed', on this occasion English county side Lancashire, I did not know whether to laugh or cry. Despite having over 100 one day internationals and 11 test matches already under his belt, Shahid Afridi still lives for the high speed, all-or...

good side

inconsistent

I have been watching the one day internationals currently being played between Pakistan, England, and Australia, and it’s been good viewing I’ve come to quick conclusion. In one day matches Pakistan are better than England but Australia are better than both of them. The Pakistan teams...

Loads of talent, Match winning Palyers

Too much Internal heat, lack commitment currently

The Pakistani team has always had the reputation of being one of the best fighters, possessing a never submissive attitude and individual talent that’s seen in very few teams. They’ve produced many legends that have revolutionized this game and contributed to cricket in a breathtaking manner...

“Pakistan wicket keeper”

published 01/07/2001

morale boosting

age factor, he is 33

Pakistan bounced back from their humiliation at home against England by taking the second test and then qualifying for the final of the Natwest Trophy. In the final, Pakistan, after a long time, has difficulty deciding about the final eleven, because of the quality players availability. Still...

Some great players, very talented

Dodgy dealings

Pakistan: a good team that has the players that can beat anyone if they are focused, but unfortunately they seem to have a darker side. With all the recent match fixing allegations, Cronje aside, it seems to me that Pakistani players are the most corrupt, with question marks hanging over their...

“Pakistan vs India 2004”

published 11/02/2004

At home

Unpredictable

Many millions are waiting for this series to get under way. Pakistan vs India is much bigger than the Ashes. India are on high after the series in Australia. While Pakistan have had good results in the Test arena, their one-day game is not 100% yet. For the test series Pakistan have to bring back...

“fix it”

published 11/07/2000

has good potential

tried to cheat

I am a pakistani cricket supporter and even though it hurts me to say I don't believe that a one match ban (Waqar Younis) is sufficient and the punishment should have been more, so this case could have been an deterrent for future cases. It is not the first time a pakistani player has been found...

match fixing ?

Currently pakistan are under the kosh, as it were, against the new zealand a side. Nevertheless, with the quality still present in the team, i expect them to win the series. In Wasim and Waqar they posess two fast bowlers with extreme pace and great track records behind them. The former will no...

“Pakistan- cheats, full stop”

published 19/07/2000

I'll think of one........errr.....maybe not

calling them immoral cheats is doing them credit

For anyone who doesn’t know much about Test cricket, Pakistan are the undeniable cheats of the sport. Put simply, their levels of dishonesty, unsportsman like conduct and shear disregard for the spirit of the game are insurmountable. It is hard to isolate examples of this, not because they are...
