Champions Trophy 2017: Former captain accuses Pakistan of match-fixing

Champions Trophy 2017: Former captain accuses Pakistan of match-fixing

"Green shirts must bat first and put up a good total on board and then tackle India with their strong bowling because it has emerged as our strength in this tournament", said Khan.

Former star batsman Aamer Sohail has alleged that Pakistan resorted to match fixing during their run to the final of the ongoing Champions Trophy cricket tournament. "Unfortunately, we got off to a bad start and got punished".

"The idea will be to stick to the plans which the coach draws up before the matches against both (Canada and Pakistan) teams. They can come up with a good game and hence it is important for us to stick to the roles assigned by our coach and execute them as planned", Manpreet said.

"They are ranked higher than us - so everyone is talking about India, India". Most recently, the ex-Indian batsman was trolled on micro-blogging site Twitter for his obnoxious tweets regarding Pakistan. We also know that given the eyeballs an India-Pakistan final will generate, this Champions Trophy match-up is a dream come true for the broadcasters. This is the first time the top leader of ruling BJP has clearly spelt their stand on sporting ties with the neighbouring country.

President Donald Trump has told his Twitter followers they are witnessing the "single greatest witch hunt in American history". Trump responded to the Post story Thursday morning with a tweet once again denouncing the investigation as a witch-hunt.

Sohail, who has from time to time, like many other former Pakistani players, been making allegations against his team of being on the pay roles of bookies, told a TV channel: "We will congratulate you when you play well, but we'll also criticise you when you don't".

"We play with no pressure", Ramandeep added. "We just want to perform to our potential and enjoy ourselves while giving our best", he said. India will take on Canada in their second Pool B match on Saturday before facing Pakistan on Sunday.

It means Canada have opened their account with a win, while Pakistan failed to bounce back from an opening 4-0 loss to The Netherlands yesterday.
