The toss on the 1st day was not so important in the eyes of cricket analysts but in the end it proved that how important it was for Pakistan. On the 1st day, captain of Pakistan Cricket Team ; Misbah-ul-Haq won the toss & elected to field. It was very strange decision as the pitch was flat & it was good for batting.

 

Day 1:

According to the decision of Pakistani captain, Pakistani team came into the ground to bowl out the Kiwi’s batsmen. Tim McIntosh & Brendon McCullum were the opening batsmen from the New Zealand side.

The first wicket went down at the score of 9 in 2nd over when McIntosh got out. It was the 1st wicket for Tanvir Ahmed.

After that Brendon McCullum & Martin Guptill started playing beautiful shots. The Brendon McCullum wasn’t given out by the umpire Rod Tucker who was umpiring in his 9th match.

The dangerous man McCullum went out after scoring 56 runs. After that wickets started falling.

The key man for Pakistan was Abdur Rehman who was threatening Kiwis batsmen. The decision of the Pakistani captain was looking great as 7 wickets of New Zealand were down at the score of 177 in 64.5 overs.

Then the young batsman Williamson started building partnership with new batsman Tim Southee. It was shocking moment for Pakistan as the lower order was hammering them. Younis Khan got a difficult opportunity but failed to catch Kane Williamson after the ball deflected off Adnan Akmal’s gloves.

At the end of the day, the score of New Zealand was looking good then it was. Still 3 wickets were behind & Williamson & Southee were on 44 & 56 respectively. The score was 260/7 in 90.0 overs.

 

 

2nd Day:

On the 2nd Day, Pakistani bowlers were looking fit & the New Zealand batsmen were looking to score more runs. But in the play of just 7.5 overs, the complete New Zealand team got out with an addition of 15 runs. Williamson got 2nd Fifty of his career.

When Pakistani team came out for batting, they were thinking of setting big target. They received a shock when Mohammad Hafeez got out in the 1st over. Then Taufeeq Umar & Azhar Ali tried to build a partnership.

On the score of 72, Azhar Ali got out at the ball of Martin. In the addition of 35 runs, Pakistan lost its two more wickets. Now the Pakistani captain Misbah-ul-Haq was on the crease with unexperienced Asad Shafiq. Both tried to play a sensible innings.

The captain of New Zealand team, Daniel Vettori wasn’t looking good but he bowled his overs. The solid rocks (Misbah-ul-Haq & Asad Shafiq) were annoying Black Caps.

Before the end of play, Asad Shafiq completed his 2nd Fifty. Then Misbah-ul-Haq started playing aggressively against Kiwi’s bowlers. He played two beautiful sweep shots to complete his Fifty.

At the end of the day, Pakistan was on 235 with the loss of 4 wickets in 80 overs. Asad Shafiq was on 74 & Misbah-ul-Haq was on 50.

 

 

Day 3:

On 3rd day, both sides were looking confident. After the addition of 21 runs, well settled Asad Shafiq & Misbah-ul-Haq got out. The the new branch of Akmals, Adnan Akmal started building partnership with Abdur Rehman. All the frustration was for New Zealand. Both were hitting all around the ground.

At the score of 332, Pakistan again lost well settled Adnan Akmal & Abdur Rehman.Then Umar Gul & Tanvir Ahmed came in to keep the scoreboard ticking. Both played aggressively.

At the score of 367, all 10 wickets of Pakistan were down but all of them played well. New Zealand was not expecting this sort of performance from the lower order of Pakistan. New Zealand was trail by 92 runs.

The lead of 92 runs taken by Pakistan build pressure on the Kiwi’s batsmen. The opening wasn’t good enough for New Zealand as the 1st wicket went down at the score of 36 runs. The McCullum was given out by the umpire which wasn’t out.

After that wickets kept falling. The key bowlers for Pakistan were Wahab Riaz & Abdur Rehman. On one side New Zealand batsmen were facing spin & on the other hand they were facing high quality of fast bowling with great pace over 140km/h.

With this mixture of bowling & great traps, Kiwi batsmen failed to survive. Wahab Riaz for the first time bowled a spell of 11 overs with a great pace. Then Pakistani captain appointed Umar Gul to get rid of the tail & the plan again worked.

Chris Martin who was playing his 60th test succeeded in scoring century of his runs in test career.

The complete New Zealand team was bowled out at the score of 110 runs in a session (3rd session). Brendon McCullum was the man with the highest score of 35. Pakistan was just 19 runs behind the victory.

Taufeeq Umar & Mohammad Hafeez came in to score the winning runs for Pakistan. Both played nice & beautiful shots. At the 3rd ball of the 4th over, Taufeeq Umar got a thick inside edge at the ball of Southee which was comfortably taken by Young but umpire Daryl Harper refused to shook his finger up.

At the very next ball, Taufeeq Umar played a beautiful straight drive & scored the winning runs. It was a very wonderful moment for Pakistan.

The match was over on the 3rd Day. Everyone was saluting the Pakistan Cricket Team.

    New Zealand Innings:

    Ryder & Guptill were the openers from the New Zealand side. The conditions were overcast & there was big responsibility on there shoulders.

    Abdul Razzaq was the bowler from Pakistan. The very first ball he bowled was down the leg side; instead of leaving it, Ryder tried to pull it towards leg side but he got a sharp nick from the bat which was easily taken by Junior Akmal.

    It was a very big moment for Pakistan. The score of Kiwi’s was nil. At the end of the first over the score was 1/1.

    Next over was given to Shoaib Akhtar, he bowled some beautiful deliveries. In the 3rd over of the match which was given to Abdul Razzaq, Guptill smashed a massive SIX & a FOUR. The last ball of the over went to the boundary after hitting the pads of Guptill.

    In the next over, Guptill again struck a huge SIX to Shoaib Akhtar. At the end of the 4th over the score of New Zealand was 34/1.

    Guptill & Franklin were going very good but at the 2nd ball of 12th over, Saeed Ajmal took the wicket of the Mr. Hitler (Guptill). Guptill scored 44 runs off 28 balls with 3 FOURS & 3 SIXES.

    Next man in was the skipper Ross Taylor. But in the next over of B00M B00M, Franklin got out. He scored 40 runs off 43 balls with 2 FOURS & 1 SIX.

    Scott Styris took the guard & went into the ground to make a good partnership with the captain. In the 15th over of Umar Gul, he smashed 2 FOURS & 1 SIX. Next over was of Shoaib Akhtar but this over was like a hell for Pakistan. Styris scored two huge SIXES at the first two balls of the over, the third ball went to FOUR. This was very anxious moment for the Rawalpindi Express. Then he bowled a slower short ball to Styris & got his precious wicket after a huge loss.

    It was like the presents of Christmas falling from the sky for ‘Black Caps’.

    McGalshan came in to assist his captain. At that time the score of New Zealand was 133/4 in 15.4 overs. On the other hand, Taylor was taking singles & doubles.

    The 18th over of the match was given to Umar Gul. McGalshan was on strike, the first three balls of the over went for FOUR, then the 4th & 5th ball went for a beautiful six. It was the very bad time for Pakistan. This over of Umar Gul cost 25 runs to Pakistan. Umar Gul’s over was like “Hell in a Cell” for Pakistan.

    The 19th over was given to Wahab Riaz & at the 3rd ball of the over, Wahab bowled a beautiful delivery at the middle stump, in reply McGalshan tried to play a cross shot but failed & that’s how he was given lbw out. He played an innings of 26 runs on just 10 balls with the help of 3 FOURS & 2 SIXES.

    In the last over of the New Zealand innings, Taylor scored a beautiful SIX at the first ball. At the 3rd ball, Nathan McCullum got out & the last ball of the over, Mills also got out. This was a great over by Saeed Ajmal. Ajmal took 3 wickets for 35 runs in 4.0 overs.

    New Zealand sums up its innings after scoring 185 runs in 20.0 overs with a loss of 7 wickets. 10 runs were given extra by Pakistani bowlers.

    Umar Gul’s over was like “Hell in a Cell” for Pakistan.

    Pakistan Innings:

    M. Hafeez & Shahid Khan Afridi were the openers from the Pakistan’s side. Both players were hitting huge hits. Mr. B00M B00M smashed too huge sixes.

    At the last ball of the 4th over, Mills bowled a ball of extra bounce in result Afridi tried to play a pull short but it was short enough to carry an edge. Southee was the man who caught the catch. At this time the score was 37/1 in 4.0 overs. B00M B00M scored 20 runs off 12 balls with 1 four & 2 beautiful sixes.

    Ahmed Shehzad, the young talented batsman took the guard & entered into the ground. He played some beautiful shots including a terrific six but got out at the ball of the 6th over. Ahmed scored 14 runs off 7 balls with the help of 2 fours & 1 six.

    Next man was the experienced & victorious captain of T20I World Cup 2009 ‘Younis Khan’ but here he failed to execute his experience & got out at the ball of Southee. He scored 2 runs off 5 balls. At this time the score of Pakistan was 62/3 in 7.2 overs.

    At the very next ball, the well settled batsman M. Hafeez also got out. He scored 24 runs off 21 balls with 4 fours.

    Another young batsman Umar Akmal came in but what!!! Umpire gave him out….Hatrick for Tim Southee. Umar could not believe what happened with him. The replay also showed that there was a clear inside edge on the pads with a great voice. But the debut & biased umpire from New Zealand gave him lbw out.

    The sudden collapse threatened the position of Pakistan. Southee was very happy but Pakistani players & fans were really angry because of this decision. The score of Pakistan was 62/5 in 7.4 overs.

    The two new batsmen were on the pitch, Fawad Alam & Abdul Razzaq. They were showing some calmness. But in the next over of Southee, Abdul Razzaq caught behind the stumps. It was the 5th wicket for Southee. The score was 68/6 in 9.2 overs.

    Then Umar Gul came in to assist Fawad Alam. Both were trying hard to build up the Pakistan innings again but a bad choice of shot led Fawad Alam towards pavilion. Pakistan was going down, the score was 84/7 in 12.1 overs.

    Still 7 overs were behind. Then Wahab Raiz entered into the ground. Both players showed activeness & steadiness. Umar Gul hit some fabulous boundaries but in the 18th over, Gul got a blow on his pad & it was given out. The score was now above hundred, it was 110/8 in 17.1 overs.

    The next man was Saeed Ajmal. At the last ball of the same over, again umpire on debut gave him caught behind out at the ball of Mills which was totally wrong. It could be lbw out because it was hit on the pad & after seeing on screen, he gave him lbw out but also it wasn’t sure.

    Now the last man of the Pakistan’s side was Shoaib Akhtar & the talented young fast bowler from New Zealand was Milne; who was playing his debut. Akhtar survived several time in his over but when Akhtar got angry of short balls, he smashed one of the ball out of the ground & it was six.

    Wahab Riaz on the other hand was trying hard to keep the scoreboard ticking. In the last two overs, he was on fire. He scored 30 runs off 21 balls with 2 fours & 2 shining sixes. Shoaib Akhtar also got 8 runs from 4 balls with 1 huge six. Both remained not-out.

    In the end, Pakistan succeeded in scoring 143 runs of 20.0 overs with the loss of 9 wickets. The tail enders scored half of the score, as 4 runs were given extra by the Kiwis.

    New Zealand Innings:

    The well known Ryder & Guptill were the openers from the New Zealand. Abdul Razzaq was the bowler from Pakistan. At the 3rd ball of Abdul Razzaq, Guptill scored a four, at the 4th ball, he scored a six & at the 5th ball he again scored a four. It was the poor show of bowling by Pakistan.

    Both batsman were playing great. At the last ball of the 2nd over, Shoaib Akhtar got the wicket of Ryder. It was a brilliant catch by Younis Khan. The score was 27/1 in 1.6 overs.

    Brownlie was the next man from New Zealand; who was on his debut, can’t make more then 5 runs & got out at the ball of Shoaib Akhtar. The score of New Zealand was 45/2 in 3.3 overs.

    Scott Styris came in. He stroke a massive six. But then got clean bowled at the ball of Akhtar. He scored just 7 runs on 8 balls.

    Captain Taylor came in & started building a good partnership with Guptill. Both played some beautiful shots. Guptill got his fifty in no time.

    In the 10th over, M. Hafeez with Umar Akmal done some extra-ordinary work & succeeded in cleaning Guptill. He was run-out at the score of 91/4 in 9.4 overs. He scored 54 runs off just 29 runs with 4 fours & 4 stunning sixes.

    At the very next ball of Mr. B00M B00M, Junior Akmal produced some dashing talent & stumped Franklin. Umar Akmal called for a appeal & it was handed over to the 3rd umpire. Clips were showing that the feet of the Franklin was on the line & the bails were off, even commentators & spectators were saying that ‘he is out’. But the 3rd umpire given him Not-Out which was unbelievable & wrong decision. Umar Akmal was looking frustrated.

    In the 15th over of the professor M. Hafeez, Franklin got a stretched ball on his pad & after loud appeal it was given lbw out. At this time the score was 115/5 in 14.4 overs.

    From there, Ryder & new batsman McGlashan started building a solid partnership. Captain of Kiwis Ross Taylor was on fire. In the 16th over, he screwed Rawalpindi Express Shoaib Akhtar & in the 17th over, he destroyed Professor M. Hafeez.

    Taylor scored 39 runs off 31 balls with 2 fours & 3 sixes. McGlashan scored 5 runs off 8 balls with 1 four. Both remained not-out.

    New Zealand succeeded in chasing the target & scored 146/5 in 17.1 overs. 11 runs were given extra by the Pakistani bowlers.

    Melbourne – Australia: The Boxing Day Test at the MCG is always special, and this promises to be one of the best.


     

    Overview:

    It may be known as the Melbourne Cricket Ground, but in truth the MCG is the premier multi-sport venue in Australia.

    The ‘G, as locals call it, hosted the Olympics in 1956 and the Commonwealth Games 50 years later, with countless international matches in both rugby codes, football and Aussie-rules in between.

    But the highlight of the Australian sporting calendar is for many the Boxing Day Test at the MCG, with this year’s bigger than most as the ‘G prepares to host its first truly meaningful Ashes contest for a generation.

    At one point the vast bowl had a capacity topping 125,000, but the conversion of virtually all areas of the ground to seating has seen the total drop below six figures.

    But with the giant three-tier Great Southern Stand circling almost half the ground and holding nearly 50,000 people, the MCG remains one of the most spectacular and imposing venues in any sport.

    The MCG hosted the first three Tests in history, and has gone on to host over 50 Tests against England alone.

    The Melbourne surface traditionally stays true with even bounce, allowing for a fair contest between bat and ball, although not always between Australia and opposition…

    The ground was evacuated in August 2006 when a fire broke out in a stand under construction, causing minor damage to the roof and an area of seating.

     

    England’s last visit:

    Another crushing victory for the home side. England won the toss and reached a relatively secure 101-2, with Andrew Strauss battling to a rare half-century on a difficult tour. Barely a session later, England were 159 all out with Shane Warne (5-39) once again their chief destroyer.

    They did then reduce Australia to 84 for five before centuries from Matthew Hayden and Andrew Symonds took the game out of England’s reach and took the total to 419 despite four wickets for Saj Mahmood. Yes, Saj Mahmood.

    England’s second innings was almost equally as shambolic as the first, the tourists limping pathetically to 161 all out to lose by an innings and 99 runs.

     

    Happy hunting ground:

    Ricky Ponting’s form is a major worry for Australia, and it’s mixed news for their broken-digited skipper from Melbourne. First the good news: he averages almost 62.50 at the MCG and made his highest Test score here – 257 against India. Now the bad news: against England at the ‘G, he averages under 20.

    This is also that rarest of grounds, the sight of a Shane Watson hundred. The king of the half-century scored 120 not out against Pakistan here last year having made a more familiar 93 in the first innings. Small sample admittedly, but an average of 213 is always a decent starting point.

    Generally, though, the Aussie batsmen are an inexperienced bunch here. Watson has just that one Test, Phil Hughes has never played here while Mike Hussey and Michael Clarke have one MCG century between them.

    The same is true of the bowlers, with little course form to go on past Mitchell Johnson’s 11 wickets at 26. Peter Siddle has six expensive wickets from two appearances, while neither Ben Hilfenhaus nor Ryan Harris has Test experience at the ‘G.

    Five of England’s top six have played here before, but all just the once and, as you’d expect, none have particularly fond memories. Unless the selectors spring a major shock and pick Monty, all the bowlers will be making their MCG bow.

     

    They said:

    “I would think on the WACA’s worst day they would still be faster and bouncier than anything we normally turn out. We’re quite slow on the first day normally.”

    MCG curator Cameron Hodgkins dismisses talk of a fast, bouncy pitch for the Test.


    “You’d expect everyone to do it. That is the beauty of home conditions, isn’t it? You can prepare a pitch to hopefully suit the home side. That is what we try and do in England in certain cases. There is no reason I would expect Australia not to do it.”

    But England’s Alastair Cook is expecting another quick, green one.

     

    “We won’t see similar conditions in Melbourne, because it doesn’t bounce as much there. When we were there for the three-day game they were preparing two pitches. One looked barer than the other, and they were debating then which they wanted to use. They weren’t that happy with the look of the slightly barer one, so more than likely they’ll go with the one with more grass cover.”

    And coach Andy Flower isn’t bothered anyway.

     

    “I’m glad we made the decision (to uses the alternative pitch) early. I’d hate to think if we released it after Perth whether anyone would think we were up to something. I’m not surprised with the conspiracy theory, given the success in Perth.”

    It’s all entirely innocent, insists Melbourne Cricket Club chief executive Stephen Gough.

     

    Weather forecast:

    In a word: pleasant. Almost no chance of any rain spoiling what promises to be a magnificent occasion, with sunshine and fluffy white cloud the order of the day and temperatures ranging from the high teens to mid-20s Celsius.


    Conclusion:

    All the records and history here, of course, come with a caveat due to the whispers, conspiracy theories and flat-out panic about the pitch that’s being prepared for this one. But it is, in truth, something of a red herring.

    While the groundsman will perhaps leave a bit more live grass on the pitch than normal, you can’t turn Melbourne into Perth in a week however hard you try.

    Swing is also generally less of a factor here, which will be a relief to England’s middle order. Given the pitch is generally slow on day one and tends to flatten out, team selection will be interesting. Australia will obviously be keen to retain a winning side, but going in without a spinner is a far greater risk here than it was in Perth. It could also encourage England to bowl first again should they win the toss and try to exploit any early life in the pitch.

    Generally the toss isn’t hugely significant on a pretty consistent pitch. The last eight have all batted first, but their mixed results suggest a) it doesn’t really matter and b) Australia usually win anyway.

    Predicting the winner of an Ashes Test is becoming near impossible given the staggering shifts in momentum with seen in the last two series, both marked by the quirk of being extremely close despite featuring largely one-sided matches. But while it would be a surprise to see either batting line-up blown away here as they were in Perth (Australia’s batting, minus Hussey, was barely less pathetic than England’s), a positive result should still be expected: there have been no draws in the last 12 Tests here, and only two in the last 22.

    Abu Dhabi: South Africa won the series after beating Pakistan with six wickets in the 2nd T20I. Again Pakistani Batsmen proved dried leaves.


    Toss: Pakistan won the toss & elected to bat.

     

    Pakistan Innings:

    Pakistan Cricket Team was unchanged & the same batsmen were sent to open the innings {Imran Farhat & Shahzaib Hassan}. Again Shahzaib failed to convince the crowd & went back to pavilion at the last ball of the 2nd over.

    Mohammad Hafeez came in & tried to set the things, he was looking good but the luck was not in his favor. A sharp inside edge wrecked the bails. Pakistani management sent Misbah-ul-Haq at no. 4, which was indeed a good decision.

    Misbah-ul-Haq was playing as a test & it was the need of the time. But on the other hand no one was supporting him. After Imran Farhat, no one tried to stand at that end. Everyone was trying to smash the ball.

    Today, captain of Pakistan Cricket Team Shahid Afridi disappointed his fans & went back to pavilion after scoring just 3 runs of 3 balls.

    Abdul Razzaq tried its best & scored 25 runs of 29 balls with 2 massive sixes. He was unlucky too & caught by the fielder.

    Zulqarnain Haider who is a young talented wicket keeper succeeded in adding 17 precious runs of 17 balls with 1 four.

    Misbah-ul-Haq was struggling & tried his best to boost up the score by adding 33 runs of 38 balls with the help of  2 fours & 1 six.

    Last over was the best over for South Africa & for their bowler Rusty Theron. He took 3 wickets in that over for just 4 runs.

    At last Pakistan managed to score 120/9 in 20.0 overs. This was a good recovery because 5 wickets were gone when Pakistan was on 39.

    South Africa Innings:

    Greame Smith & Loots Bosman were the openers from South Africa. Shoaib Akhtar was on the bowling track. Spectators were expecting the good performance of Shoaib Akhtar as he performed in the 1st T20I. But he failed to do so.

    South Africa’s first wicket went down on the score of 39.AB de Villeres also helped Smith. But Smith was facing problems in playing against Afridi. Today, the Afridi’s bowling was very tight. South Africa’s batsmen were thinking about solving this problem.

    A single over was not given to Pakistan’s All Rounder Abdul Razzaq by his captain because of his poor form. In the 16th-17th over, the game was completely in the hand of Pakistan. Pakistani spinners performed really good.

    But Umar Gul & then Shoaib Akthar failed to maintain their line & length, Ingram smashed each & every single ball with Duminy.

    Spectators in the Shiekh Zaid Cricket Stadium were in deep pain because Ex-World T20I Champion Pakistan was once again defeated by South Africa.

    Dusty Atmosphere:

    The PCB announced a team of 16 members for the ODI & T20 series. After the accusations of match fixing/spot fixing the ECB & ICC are forcing PCB to suspend 3 players (Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif, Mohammad Aamer) from the series.

    The chairman of the PCB Ejaz Butt said that they will not suspend any player before the investigation report of Scotland Yard comes up with strong evidences.

    The President of ICC Sharad Pawar said that the report of ACSU is about to come in two days & it will prove everything.

    The High Commission of Pakistan said that their is no allegation against Mohammad Aamer, Mohammad Asif & Salman Butt. The wicket keeper Kamran Akmal was cleared.

    After the release of Majeed on bail without any charge make the atmosphere more dusty then it was. As he was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud bookmakers.

    Squad of Pakistan Cricket Team announced for ‘NatWest ODI & T20 Series’


    Lords, London – England: British police on Sunday bailed without charge a man arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud bookmakers.

    Several people are saying that these allegations are quite right & the players must be punished. The simple answer is these are accusations because they are not proved yet & will not because of the weak strength of the evidences.

    Hidden facts behind these fake evidences (People saying these are real, here is the answer that these are fake):

    1) Picture of Salman Butt with so called ‘fixer’ Majeed & so called ‘reporter’ of ‘News of the World’ :

    Take a close look of this picture ==>

    • Salman Butt is in front, he should be stand in between of them.
    • You can see how much is the difference between the quality of Salman Butt pic, the so called ‘fixer’ pic & the reporter pic.
    • The width of the shadow of Salman’s neck is too big then it comes in real.
    • Have a look at the right side bottom of the picture, bottom of the so called ‘fixer’ Majeed, there is some thing with white border & with black inner surface, what is it, may be a chair or table or some thing. One thing proves here that the photographer is not professional. Then how he gets high quality picture of Salman Butt.
    • The left arm of the jacket/coat which Salman Butt is wearing is so straight, in real its not look like this. Check the yellow line on the left arm of the Salman Butt.

    • If you are still not believing, let’s believe it is true for a while, this picture can be take on some kind of party, the press ‘reporter’ is there, the so called ‘fixer’ is the agent of several ‘Pakistani players’. Still it is not proving that any kind of fixing here.

    2) 1st Video in which the so called ‘Reporter’ is giving money to so called ‘Fixer’:

    Watch the video carefully:

    • No time is mentioned, it might be recorded after the overs or after the day.
    • When ever any kind of bookie takes such a big amount, he never counts it & he always receive cash in the form of briefcase.
    • What kind of hidden camera is this, which is just fixed in front of the so called ‘fixer’ & table? A CCTV, no because such a hidden camera can’t provide high quality result (colour view) with high quality voice.

    3) 2nd Video in which the so called ‘Reporter’ is giving cash to the so called ‘Fixer’ in the car & after this ‘Fixer’ is giving his jacket to Wahab Riaz:

    Watch this video carefully:

    • Again no date & time is mentioned.
    • So called ‘Fixer’ is seeing in the camera & talking.
    • Amazingly, so called ‘Reporter’ is giving cash to the so called ‘Fixer’ in the car where there is light & people are walking on the road near the car.
    • 3 cameras are in the car according to the video & so called ‘Fixer’ even can’t point out a single camera & he is looking into it.
    • In the car the so called ‘Fixer’ is wearing ‘Light Blue’ shirt & when he is giving his jacket to Wahab Riaz, he is wearing ‘Black’ shirt.
    • Showing or Giving jacket is not proving anything, because the weather in England is cold & may be Wahab Riaz is feeling cold so Wahab just borrowed the jacket from him.

    4) Why the ‘News of the World’ team didn’t went to Police on August 27, 2010:

    • Because the evidence were not ready.
    • Because they were waiting for some kind of poor performance so they can provide more strength to there fake evidences.
    • Some people are saying that because of their weekly edition they leaked the videos on August 28, 2010, well this is not the reason because if they would’ve visited the Scotland Yard on August 27, 2010 with their evidences then there was a chance that Scotland Yard would’ve kept the videos secret until August 28, 2010.

    5) So Called ‘Fixer’ Mazhar Majeed released on bail:

    Scotland Yard on Sunday bailed without charge a man arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud bookmakers.

    “A 35 year-old man has been bailed until a date in the future”, a Scotland Yard spokesman said.

    6) Salman Butt refuses to resign after false allegations:

    The captain of Pakistan Test Cricket Team insisted he would not be resigning after being implicated in an alleged betting scam.

    The matter is almost over, the criticisers must now stop criticising. The English media completely failed in their ridiculous mission.

    7) Pakistani players can leave England:

    The Pakistani players at the center of the scandal are free to leave the country, London’s Metropolitan Police said Monday.

    Next Report ==> ((NatWest T20 & ODI series & Dusty Atmosphere)) <== Next Report

    Wahab Riaz was the next player, but he also left the crease after blocking 10 balls. At this stage the score of Pakistan was 73/8.

      Lord’s, London-England: According to the ICC the 4th test at Lord’s will continue in between Pakistan & England. One person is arrested from the hotel of Pakistan Cricket Team.

      The match-fixing unit of ICC is still waiting for the report of Scotland Yard. It is difficult to prove the allegation on the cricketers.

      Allegation without solid proofs ==>

      The proofs of the ‘News of the World’ are good to make fool but not quite enough to prove the Pakistani Cricketers are criminals of the world of cricket. There is no proof that video is made before or after that over & the images are edited in Adobe Photoshop.

      Match Fixing or Spot Fixing ==>

      The allegation imposed on Pakistani Cricketers is ‘Match Fixing’ while what they are showing is ‘Spot Fixing’. ‘Spot Fixing’ is a type of fix in which the bowler/batsman/fielder/keeper do something strange at specific time.

      Fix or Incident ==>

      In the video (made by NOFTW), Majeed said that he also fixed the matches of India & South Africa, so a question rise here about the performance of Indian team in the triangular series. Also the Sri Lanka spinner ‘Suraj Randeev’ bowled no-ball to restrict ‘Sehwag’ from scoring century. These were fixed or just were incident?

      It is always easy to point out some one but it is always difficult to prove some one. The interest of media is now not in the match, they just want to know that who will ride on the bus towards the Lord’s stadium & who will not. Instead of just trusting the report, the media & fans must show its responsible behaviour.


      Lord’s, London – England: The news about the match fixing of the 4th test between Pakistan & England is still not confirmed & ‘News Of The World’ is the website who revealed this news.

      The top class Pakistani Cricketers are attacked by the European media. Captain of Pakistan Cricket Team ‘Salman Butt’, fast bowlers ‘Mohammad Aamer’ & ‘Mohammad Asif’ & wicket keeper ‘Kamran Akmal’
      Allegation made against these Stars ==>
      The ‘News of the World’ claims it gave £150,000 to a middleman who promised to arrange for Pakistan to bowl three “no balls” during the match. The middleman is the suspect  ‘Majeed’ caught by Police.
      The News of the World accused Pakistani players that they were secretly paid to deliberately bowl “no-balls” during the Test.
      As Mohammad Aamer & Mohammad Asif bowled three no-balls in the test against England.
      Why they didn’t went to Police on August 27, 2010?
      Why Salman Butt ==>
      After the comment of Salman Butt on coming Ashes Series, the coach of England Cricket Team warned the captain of Salman Butt by the source of media that this is not his business, he must keep himself away.
      Why Mohammad Aamer & Mohammad Asif ==>
      They named Pakistan young talented bowler ‘Mohammad Aamer’, whose performance is so good & every tv anchor/cricket fan loves to talk about him, who recently got 6 wickets on the 2nd day of Lord’s test.
      Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Asif also named in the list of this propagation because of his good performance against England, supporting Mohammad Aamer & as he is moving up in the ‘ICC Test ranking’.
      Why Kamran Akmal ==>
      The Wicket Keeper of Pakistan Cricket Team Kamran Akmal is also a part of this propagation because of his good come back & because of the latest news of Zulqarnain Haider; that he was quite fit & forced to travel back to Pakistan for Kamran Akmal. This news proved that he is the powerful person in Pakistan Cricket Team after Salman Butt.
      Who is behind this==>
      As the young team of the Pakistan surprised England in the 3rd test & won the match by 4 wickets. The captain & other players of Pakistan Cricket Team told the media that they will win the 4th test & will level the series.
      This was the situation when ECB & the ‘News of the World‘ made a trap for Pakistan Cricket Team & after the poor performance of Pakistan on the 3rd day of Lord’s test, they broke the news & pushed big stars of Pakistan into the tragedy.

      How strong is the allegation ==>
      The ‘News Of The World’ team made a complete scene for trapping the Pakistan Cricket Team. The plan was made with so much constancy that they even have a picture of the captain of ‘Pakistan Cricket Team’ “Salman Butt’ with the 35 year old ‘Majeed’ (The suspect).
      Reporter of ‘New of the World’
      Note: Look at this phote clearly!! you can see how cleanly they cut and paste sulman butt picture… You can see his right & left hands…. Why Salman Butt is in front? Why the so called ‘fixer’ & so called ‘our man’ is not in front?
      Video made by ‘News of the World’ ==>
      In this video they are handling £150,000 to the suspect Majeed.
      New Lead against ‘News of the World’ allegation==>
      In this video the suspect {Majeed} is showing money to Wahab Riaz & Umar Amin
      I’ve a couple of things to add, watch this carefully:
      1. Mazhar’s T-Shirt! In the car he is wearing a blue one, but when he gives the jacket to Wahab he is wearing a black one! Climax in the story! And if he can change his T-Shirt in the meanwhile, then who says that the money can’t removed.
      2. The camera angles! There are 3 different camera angles when Majeed {Suspect} is in the car – who is that possible if it was a hidden camera? Or did the use 3 cameras at different position to cover the scene & Majed {Suspect} didn’t even see on of them. [Important Lead by Abdul Rehman from Denmark]

      ==>
      According to the latest news Scotland Yard police arrested him & is investigating the whole situation.
      PCB in London ==>
      Pakistan’s manager said team members spoke to police at their hotel.
      Earlier, Yawar Saeed told the Associated Press: “I can confirm that we are aware of the allegations and Scotland Yard police are with us now at the hotel and we are helping them with their enquiries.”
      ECB ==>
      A spokesman for both the England team and England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) said he had not heard from Scotland Yard and would not comment on the claims.
      Reasons behind the allegation ==>
      • To destroy the career of professionals of Pakistan Cricket Team.
      • To ensure that there is no chance of playing cricket in Pakistan.
      • To remove the Pakistan Cricket Team from ICC test teams.
      • To demoralize Pakistan Cricket Team & Cricket.

      Question ==>

      Why they didn’t went to Police on August 27, 2010? Because the video was not prepared or the time was not good enough to leak the news. Because they were waiting for this poor performance from Pakistan & the big one is they were making video & after completing them, they went to Police on August 28, 2010.

      This is enough to prove that the allegation is wrong.

      What a nice way to demoralize Pakistan Cricket Team & Pakistan.

      The Pakistani Stars are pushed in this situation because of their good performance & there is a probably chance that the party behind this scene also blackmailed the Pakistani players to show bad performance other wise the allegation will be imposed on them.

      Effect ==>

      This will fulfil all their tasks & this will put a big question mark in front of the Pakistan Cricket & its team. The Pakistan is suffering the worst disaster in its history & now this news will further hurt the nation.
      Some people will satisfy & some will not, if you want to know what is true & what is wrong, don’t go on any report, even not at this one. Start research, the truth will come in front of you.
      Note: I’m not representing anyone, this is just my view, anyone feel free to deny.
