#21
If the suspicians are proved Pakistan should be banned from world cricket for a minimum of 10 years. Enough is enough

Yes I agree but I think they must be bonkers if they have.

Dave Richardson of the ICC says that all is well:

I would be reassured by this were it not for the fact that I have just read the article entitled Hell in a handcart by Ed Hawkins in the 2015 Wisden.  In it, he suggests that the main weapons used by the ICC in dealing with corruption in cricket are a bucket of whitewash and a large brush.

Still think a Pakistan series in England would be a hard sell..... Many may query whether they were watching a game that was fact or fiction. The damage has perhaps been done....

There is a large number of Pakistan origins in this country so it will sell very well. Its not like New Zealand where there was very little away support. Of Course having Moeen and and Rashid in the England setup might change the allegaince a bit, i don't know.

A Pakistan series in England might be a success.  But I wouldn't bet on it.

Strangely, my experiences of attending Test Cricket matches against Pakistan is how poorly they are attended by Pakistan supporters (not sure about 50 over or IT20 games). Perhaps the Moeen factor might get the community out supporting England.... or perhaps they just dont like Test Cricket?

Great post by the way Terry :-)

Ok maybe I'm wrong. Lets wait and see how the crowds match up to the New Zealand series last year.

£36 in the EH stand and £11 for under 16s isn't bad for the Sri Lanka ODI. £41 for the Test is okish..... But not against Pakistan. £61 for the T20 finals day is starting to get pricey IMHO..... But then it is a premium event along with the Ashes or World Cup. Cricket does drift to being expensive at times once you've added travel, food, holidays etc.... But there still seems to be a demand. Let's hope there is for the Test Match next summer.....
