    Pakistanis abuse returning cricketers

    Members of the Pakistan cricket team have arrived home to a hostile reception from fans disappointed about their defeat in the final of the World Cup in England on Sunday.

    They left Karachi airport under police guard as a crowd of several hundred shouted abuse and accusations of malpractice.

    At a news conference, the team manager, Zafar Altaf, compared their treatment with that given to the South Africans - who, he pointed out, had been welcomed home as heroes after being knocked out in the semi-finals.

    Asked about unsubstantiated charges of match-fixing against his players, Mr Altaf angrily declined to comment. Following England's early exit from the World Cup, the selectors have appointed British of Indian origin Nasser Hussein, who was born in India, as captain of the side to replace Alex Stewart.

    Apart from losing the world cup, Pakistan also lost to arch rivals India and Bangladesh.

    The reason why South Africa had a had a better welcome than Pakistan is that South Africa put up a fight in the semis and deserved to win. Unlike Pakistan who didn't seem to try at all. Also the Pakistani fans only know one thing which is winning and they didn't even look at the fact that Pakistan got to the finals which is also a great achievement.
