I know what you're trying to say but I think you are wrong.
You could see it in the eyes.
Pak lads would have loved a 3-0, they just would.
The next time England throw away a game that they should have won I hope you'll be as consistant and acuse the England players of being in the pay of the Bombay mafia.
Bet you don't though!

No I won't because I trust England and I don't trust Pakistan - who have form. I'm not saying it was a fix, but if I was going to fix a game it would be a dead rubber. Making a pig's ear of a small chase is also big money as you can just bat normally in the hope you get into a very good position then back the oppo (or lay yourself) at big odds. Then fk it up. Easier to mess up a chase than a defence imo. Dropping catches can look so obvious (that Aus game 3 years ago). As it happens I called this before the chase started and put up lays of Pak at 1.01 and 1.02. (ie. 49/1 and 99/1) thinking they would get into a good position and fk it up (either through fixing or just incompetence). Unfortunately I was too greedy, they only ever reached 1.03 (33/1). Oh well you live and learn. It will be a long, long time before I ever trust Pak, and I make no apologies for that stance as they've brought it on themselves. LIke I say it may've just been an almighty balls up yesterday but I honestly did call it (on betfair forum) before the chase, and at long odds too.

I understand what you are saying BB but don't agree with you on that. I think it was clean.
And anyway, I was just laughing at the Indians getting turned over, much as Big H was. And many others I suspect.
That's my joy.
BCCi bunch of ...............etc.

Dont get me wron, I like seeing India lose for sure, largely because of the BCCI, IPL and the 14 yo internet trolls that BH was on about.
