Pakistan cricket team accused of match-fixing by Aamer Sohail?
Aamer Sohail, the former Pakistan skipper, has indirectly accused the Pakistan cricket team of match-fixing after the team entered the final of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 following their win over England in Cardiff.
The match-fixing scandal has apparently come back to haunt the Pakistan cricket team. Former skipper Aameer Sohail has indirectly accused the entire team of fixing matches as they qualified for the final of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 after beating England in the semi-final in Cardiff on Wednesday.
Speaking on a Pakistan TV news channel, Sohail said that ‘external factors’ were behind Pakistan’s progress to the final where they will play India at The Oval on June 18. In a panel that also included former captain and coach Javed Miandad, Sohail said, “Sarfraz needs to be told that you have not done anything great. Someone has helped you win the game. There is no reason for you (Sarfraz) to be so happy. We all know what happens behind the scenes. Don’t wish to get into the details on who won them the games. If asked, I will say that the prayers of the fans and God has won them the games.”
