Pak 'match-fixing' scam: More skeletons out as player claims every match was fixed
#1

The British tabloid News of The World which came out with the sting operation on Pakistan cricketers last week has come out with more explosive revelations. It's running a video of the Pakistan batsman Yasir Hameed, who played in the Lord's Test, on its website where he claims there were cheats in his team.

In his interview, the opening batsman says that team-mates have been fixing 'almost every match' and that a player can be played as much as 20,000-25,000 pounds per no ball bowled. "It makes me angry that I'm trying my best and they are trying to lose," Hameed told the British tabloid whose earlier revelations have shocked the cricket world.

Also, the tabloid revealed that the ICC is investigating a fourth Pakistani player in the spot-fixing controversy. They have said they will not name the fourth player because of legal implications.

When contacted by NDTV, the ICC refused to comment on this latest expose by News of the World, and the ongoing investigations.

Pakistan cricket may be in for more trouble as The News Of The World says it will publish full details of the entire investigation, starting in January this year, including the transcripts of every meeting, conversation, email and text exchange.(Read: Clinching evidence against Pak players: Lorgat | No conspiracy against Pakistan: ICC)

The British tabloid also claims that the three players - Salman Butt, Mohammed Asif, Mohammed Amir - face a "staggering" 23 ICC charges between them and each charge runs to six pages. (Read: Pakistan's tainted trio released without charge)
