  • this is not a lot of money when shared among 14 team members. no wonder they resort to match fixing.

  • This Pakistani team is far more better than team playing semis expect Aus and India. Only big 3 politics made Pakistan out because they know they can defeat anyone but Pakistan… Shame on the politics involved in cricket…
