Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Bet they dont get kicked out by the ICC!
    Fcuking cheats should be banned from ALL cricket.
     
  2. Where's the evidence then?

    I'm sure the ICC would be keen to hear from you.
     
  3. England beat Pakistan by 354 runs
    England won the toss and decided to bat
    England 1st Innings
    354 all out (104.1 overs)
    England 2nd Innings
    262 for 9 (75.3 overs)
    Pakistan 1st Innings
    182 all out (54.0 overs)
    Pakistan 2nd Innings
    80 all out (29.0 overs)


    Yup, those 3 no balls made ALL the difference to the result
     
  4. So the New of the World got it wrong then did they?
    The Met Police had a tip off about illegal betting on the match to.
    Palistan have had players before banned for illegal betting so it's not new to the PCB!!!!
     
  5. They could find themselves in deep water! :)

    Yes, they'll find themselves in over their heads, I 'm sure....
     
  7. Sky News have reported that the Met have let the man in question go without charge
     
  8. Who really cares?

    Cricket is like,rain on a tent,makes you want to sleep.

    Best place to watch is,from a deckchair with your eyes closed.
     
  9. Pakistan should take up water polo
     
  10. ''Fixing'' is a way of life in Pakistan-and always will be.It was forever thus.
     
  11. It wasn't the end result that would be bet on, it would be a spot bet on the no balls themselves, big money to be made. Certainly as a non cricketing type myself, the film of the first no ball was as good a piece of 'Look, look I'm doing a no ball' as any bit of football diving.
    Incidently the NOW does seem to have cornered the market in filmed stings.
     
  12. I do agree with you entirely Chef, it was the title of the thread that encouraged my pedantic response, problem is, how do you prove it was a deliberate no ball, it certainly looks odd to be sure and the NOTW has form in this sort of investigation, but according to the BBC yesterday the spot betting market for this type of thing is such that someone is betting on a no ball for pretty much every ball bowled among every other type of bet imaginable, not so much in the UK but on the sub-continent and in the far east.
     
  13. No, the news of the world got it right.

    You got it wrong though....

    It was the fourth test, and not the first test. Also, they didn't fix the result of the test, they merely allegedly conspired to bowl no balls at certain points.

    At least the words "Pakistan" and cricket" were correct in your original email, but I'm not quite sure who Palistan are though?

    Are you always this excitable, or have you forgotten your meds again?
