The Age old Practice of the Pakistanis come in again– Match fixing. This year has been a disastrous year for the Men in Green. All sorts of problem comes in at a time and most of all, in these problems they don’t have anyone to lead them.
The Man behind this 150,000 Pounds bet is Mazhar Majeed. In one of the biggest Scams in the World, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Aamer were instructed to bowl THREE No balls in the game against England. Millions of fans watched the duo Pakis bowling three no balls. During live coverages, the viewers and even the commentators didn’t know that it was a “Faked” No Ball ordered by Mazhar Majeed who looted away 150,000 Euros. Thanks to the News report by News of the World, that the world came to know this.
MAJEED: “There’s no risk, there’s no signal. . . these three are definitely happening. They’ve all been organised, okay? So, the first ball of the third over of the innings, yeah. “Asif and Amir are going to be bowling. Amir is to bowl the first over (meaning he will also bowl the third), yeah?
“Okay? Then the tenth, the last ball. . . sixth ball of the tenth over.”
REPORTER: “The tenth over. Who’s bowling it?”
MAJEED: “Asif will be bowling it.”
Without Salman Butt’s involvement, this was not possible as he is the Captain of the Pakistani team. So, he too had a play in this Scam. Seven Players have been named for this scam. Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif, Mohammad Aamer and Kamaran Akmal have been named till now.
Majeed’s revelations are that he has been involved in Betting of Tests, One Dayers and even T20s.
I’ve been doing it with them for bout two-and-a-half years and we’ve made masses of money.
I manage 10 of the players, I do all their affairs like contracts, sponsorship, marketing, everything really. The players would never tell anybody else. They were the ones who actually approached me about this.
This is the beauty of it. I was friends with them for four, five years and then they said this happens. These poor boys need to. They’re paid peanuts.
A lot of the boys want to f*** up Afridi because he’s trying to f*** up things for them.
Let’s say for example Twenty20, I’ll tell you the bowlers, how many minimum runs they’re going to concede. And the batsmen. I’m going to tell you how many, like say it was on the two opening batsmen, Salman and Kamal, for example, you’ve only got twenty overs, they’re going to waste two overs, three overs.
he Twenty20s are easiest. Then the bowlers as well, yeah, they will certainly give a certain amount of runs and they’re going to be batting as well and give their wickets. We’ll finalise a price for each one and we’ll just take it off the balance. We’ll take it off the 150 (grand) balance until we’re square.
Cricket is Sport and not a religion and People like this should be put behind bars immediately. Looks like if its true, its end for Aamer, Asif and Butt.!!
We saw a lot of Wrong Decisions in the Match between India and Sri Lanka recently due to which India lost the game. So, we blame the Umpires for wrong decisions. But, it was available the Tri Series and because India did not want it, it was not used. So somehow India paid the price for not accepting the URDS system. Read the rest of this entry
Cricket – The Game Of The Lords
To know the taste of nectar on earth,
We had the gentlemen’s game Cricket’s birth,
Which is filled with enjoyment and mirth.
I start off with the diverse team,
Which make the respective supporters beam.
First comes Team no. one,
India jo hai ek solid tuphaan.
Then comes team Pakistan,
T20 cricket mein hai woh sabse mahaan.
When the Sri Lankans step on,
With the wind the opposition is gone.
Then comes Champion Team Australia,
World cup mein inhone saare teams ko haraa diya.
After them, come the royal English,
Opposite them, the teams always perish.
Then come the Proteas to the pitch,
They send the minnows mercilessly into the ditch.
Team New Zealand plays to fire,
And fulfill their nation’s desire.
You’ll never cease to make shor….
Kyunki yeh dil hamesha maange more….
Sachin Tendulkar’s life can be summed up quite rightly in one sentence. From Tendulkar to Ton-dulkar to End-ulkar to Ton-dulkar again.

For the past two decades, Sachin Tendulkar has quite successfully handled the magnanimous task of living upto the expectations of a billion people. Read the rest of this entry
