Pakistani Cricketers and Corruption

I’ve been on vacation for a couple of weeks, and during that time much has happened in the world of sport.  Chris Dillow comments on the Pakistani cricketing scandal: It seems cricketers playing for Pakistan against England in a rather bizarre series (England hammered Pakistan for three of the four games and narrowly lost the other one when they should have lost by a mile) took bribes to bowl no-balls.

Chris basically makes the points I was planning on making in a much more eloquent way: Pakistani cricketers are paid pittance, are young, and hence they are good targets for bribes.
