LAHORE Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Ijaz Butt has denied the involvement of any player in match-fixing. On Friday, PCB chairman in a statement sounded adamant that there was no foul play by any Pakistani player. The Australian tour chapter is now closed and we have finished our (internal) inquiry. We have found no evidence of any match-fixing during the tour, he said. But Condon was unequivocal about the suspicions. It is a match and series that worried us, we spent a lot of time talking to the players and the PCB, Condon told journalists. What you have there is a lot of strife within the team and Pakistan politics with rivals camps making allegations, he said. The dysfunctionality in the dressing room led to players not performing well, to maybe players potentially underperforming deliberately, he said. What we still need to establish is whether that was because rival camps wanted to do down captains or potential captains, or whether it was more serious, he added. Whatever the circumstances or motivations, the case for underperformance is strong. There are the dropped catches and missed run out of keeper Kamran Akmal, and the bizarrely defensive fields used by the captain Mohammad Yousuf when Mike Hussey and Peter Siddle clawed Australia to a narrow lead. Also up for analysis are the series of suicidal shots played on the matchs final afternoon as the last nine Pakistani wickets went down for 89 runs. Condon said the spectre of individual players falling prey to the lure of a bookies dividends for 'spot-fixes to encourage betting on particular incidents, is ever-present. One or two mix with the wrong people and are tempted to do these spot-fixes, so the challenge for the game is to stop that small minority getting seduced by them, he said. My prediction is you will never totally eradicate it from cricket. There will always be that temptation. But we had a cadre of modern players who know the risks and are playing for the right reasons.
