    Three were caught last year, another three named in court. Probably a few more names to come out in the future aswell.

    In England, many news reporters wrongly report this is a match-fixing scandal, which it isn't (though the Pakistan team has been involved in numerous match fixing episodes in the past). In the match in question, one of the players implicated was tearing the England team to shreds.

    Seeing as this is primarily an American forum, it was akin to a pitcher dominating a batting side, numerous strikeouts, very few hits etc. However, the scandal would come in if he agreed to throw a wild pitch on a particular count in a particular at-bat. He could do so, and STILL continue to dominate the opposition.
