Sydney Test 'was rigged'

THE News of the World report quotes alleged match-fixer Mazhar Majeed as confirming suspicions that Australia's extraordinary victory in the second Test in Sydney earlier this year was also rigged.

Thousands of cricket fans watched Australia dramatically come from behind to win the January match at the SCG.

But the News of the World investigation claims the Pakistan team made about $1.4 million from rigging the result.

Doubts were raised on the final day when when Pakistan wicketkeeper Kamran Akmal dropped four easy catches and missed a simple run out.

Commentators were also staggered at the sudden poor play from Pakistan, who started the fifth and final day dominating the match and clear favourites to win.

The News of the World says it has Mazhar Majeed on camera declaring match-rigging was rife in international cricket.

"Let me tell you the last Test we did ... it was the Second Test against Australia in Sydney,' Majeed said.

"Australia had two more wickets left. They had a lead of 10 runs, yeah. And Pakistan had all their wickets remaining.

"The odds for Pakistan to lose that match, for Australia to win that match, were I think 40-1.

"We let them get up to 150 then everyone lost their wickets. That one we made 1.3. But that's what I mean, you can get up to a million.

"Tests is where the biggest money is because those situations arise."

The 35-year-old property tycoon who has managed Pakistan players for more than two years said he had also been involved in ball-tampering.

"I used to go out on the pitch to give the players their drinks," he said.

"Whenever we couldn't get a wicket I'd have a lump of Vaseline on my hand. Shake their hand. They'd put it on one side of the ball and the ball would suddenly start in-swinging."

Under "Sharia Law" these guys should have just signed their own death warrant.
