    What's your say...

    Pakistan cricket is embroiled in a new controversy after the national team were accused of deliberately losing two games at the Champions Trophy by a government official.

    The chairman of the National Assembly's standing committee on sports claimed in a television interview that Pakistan lost to Australia to knock traditional rivals India out of the limited-overs tournament in South Africa.

    hmmm....I think it's a little bit rich a pakistani gov official calling anyone corrupt or even accuse them of match fixing.

    obviously the gov official had put a tidy sum of money on India winning.

    sounds more like sour grapes to me.

    i'm a fan of the Bangladeshi Cricket Team.
