Match fixing allegations swirl as Pakistan get creamed (Pallekelle)

Pakistan is under deep suspicion of match fixing after a series of dropped catches, no balls, wides and knee high full tosses handed New Zealand a stunning win. The evidence is what everyone saw take place on the pitch.

The International Cricket Council's anti-corruption and security unit will treat this match no differently to any other but it will definitely warrant an investigation.

It is the price that the team pays for the bans given to three of their players earlier this year. Even as Shahid Afridi was clapping Ross Taylor off the pitch in recognition of his 131 not out, ugly rumours began to swirl around the internet.
