What is it with Pakistani cricketers, it seems to be one after the other getting into corruption charges every month or so.

Started with Danish Kaneria many years ago and seems to have been going on regularly ever since. Do they ever learn the lessons!!

Part of the problem is they don't get to play in the IPL so miss the riches and then feel the need to get financial rewards via other means.

I think there were a few before Kaneria too. Salim Malik?

Unfortunately two of the best things about Pakistan cricket, Younis Khan and Misbah-ul-Haq, have just hung up their boots.

Yes, let's hope there's no return to their bad old days. Younus and Misbah gave them back the pride from Imran Khan's day.

To think corruption in cricket is a Pakistani problem is to be blind to the facts.

Thanks very much for that list, EYT. There were quite a few names there I'd not heard of.

Thanks EYT. A lot more on the list than I initially thought.
