When Aimal Kansi was arrested by America’s CIA agents from somewhere in Dera Ghazi Khan district of Punjab in mid 90s, a very influential Pakistani politician’s son filed claim for reward money through his henchmen with American Government because the U.S.A had then announced 20 million dollars money for assisting in the arrest of Kansi- who was then thought a big threat to American security. A local advocate in America challenged the payment of 20 million dollars reward money to some Pakistani in a local court and when it came to hearing the said Advocate remarked in the open court that why should American pay 20 million dollars to the people of a country where real mother is sold in only two thousand rupees. The remarks were reported in Pakistani media but were ignored after some immediate uproar out of national ghairat (esteem).

From early 90s not only the world of cricket was taken over by bookies but an element of money become decisive factor in crucial cricket events. These were the Pakistani cricketers who were first blamed for fixing the matches in world events. From the last many years it has been for no body’s doubt that cricket board is run by money minting mafia and they have been evidently involved in manipulating the selection of cricket team for the ease of bookies to choose the team of their choice when come to a cricket match being played by the Pakistani team.
