LAHORE Former Pakistan skipper Wasim Akram believes it would be hasty to label the seven players as culprits. The Pakistan team management on Sunday confirmed that some national cricketers were under investigation for having taken bribes for spot-fixing in the final Test vs England at Lords. Akram was quoted by ESPN as saying that that these spot-fixing allegations might have brought turmoil in Pakistan cricket but one must not make conclusions. The team morale is down big time, there is a controversy in which six to seven players are involved. The media in Pakistan has already given their verdict on these allegations but one must wait for the allegations to be proven. I know that these controversial claims are bad for the game and the team but we should wait to hear the other side of the story too. The saying 'innocent unless proven guilty must be applied to the players, Akram said. The spot-fixing controversy was triggered off after a sting operation by a British tabloid disclosed the involvement of a 35-year-old property tycoon and alleged match-fixer Mazhar Majeed who was seen boasting about the spots being fixed in the final Test at Lords which Pakistan lost by a record an innings-and 225-run margin. The pace legend said that the row seems to have saddened Pakistan as a whole. Generally the controversy is looking bad. Its a bad time for Pakistan and Pakistan cricket. The whole nation is depressed, I hope everything becomes alright but lets see what happens, Akram added. Despite the spot-fixing allegations, Pakistan team management believes that their limited-overs series (5 ODIs and 2 T20s) against England will go ahead as planned next week but Akram believes Shahid Afridis men will be up against it. Pakistan team will be under scanner and under pressure for the ODIs in England. The Three Lions look a far better side with their confidence sky high at home and this fresh controversy will make matters worse for the returning ODI skipper Shahid Afridi, Akram concluded.
