What does is that they had roped in Osama bin Laden to get the job done!
Hear it here first!
Sitting in his Abbottabad abode, the bearded Arab had been poisoning the very fountain of Pakistan cricket by injecting corruption and encouraging chucking.
These New York Times and Daily Mirror reports expose how.
Apparently, whenever a ball was hit into their compound, Osama’s men never allowed the neighbourhood boys to retrieve the cherry.
Instead, they would give them 60 rupees to buy a new ball.
The boys soon turned greedy and would deliberately throw the ball inside the compound.
Osama thus killed two pigs with the same bird by:
1. Encouraging throwing -- that explains the alarming chuckers’ concentration that threatens to turn Pakistan into Chuckistan;
2. Sowing the seed of corruption in impressionable young minds, convincing them that there is easy money to be made without actually going through the pain of playing the game.
