    Mob demands jail for
    Pakistan team

    By Peter Popham in Delhi

    FOUR days after a humiliating defeat in cricket's World Cup final, Pakistan's
    brilliant but erratic national cricket team
    slunk back home yesterday. They were greeted at Karachi airport by angry
    crowds shouting "cheats and *******s"
    and demanding that the whole team be
    arrested and put on trial.

    Wasim Akram's extraordinary team,
    which includes perhaps the fastest bowler
    (Shoaib Akhtar) and the slowest runner
    between the wickets (Inzamam-ul-Haq) in
    cricket history, went down in flames on
    Sunday when Australia bowled them out
    for 132. Australia then cruised to the
    easiest of eight-wicket victoriess.

    No nation would be happy with such an
    outcome. But in a country such as
    Pakistan, rich chiefly in troubles,
    cricketing success is the great national
    consolation. Failure, on the other hand, is
    the stuff of mass despair. And Pakistan's
    defeats are always made worse by the
    suspicion that they are rigged.

    A long-running inquiry in Pakistan into
    match-fixing published an interim report
    last September in which Wasim, and his
    team-mates Ijaz Ahmed and Salim Malik,
    were accused of taking money to play
    poorly. Salim, whose oddly diffident
    performances had drawn suspicion
    before, was dropped from the team for a
    second time. Wasim somehow brazened it out.

    But suspicion again descended during
    the World Cup when on 31 May Pakistan
    were trounced by Bangladesh, the
    tournament's tiddlers. During the game,
    Wasim seemed to be enjoying the
    humiliation.

    Afterwards he said: "I am glad that we
    have lost to our brothers. The better team
    on the day won the match." One Indian
    newspaper put it: "Wasim Akram hands it
    on a platter to 'our brothers'." Newspaper
    reports that thousands of Pakistanis
    smashed their televisions in fury were
    much exaggerated. But every tea-shop
    with a television resounded with bitter curses.

    On Tuesday, donkeys were paraded
    through Lahore carrying effigies of
    Wasim and his vice-captain, Moin Khan.
    Yesterday a rumour swept the country
    that a team of top intelligence officials
    had been assigned to investigate the
    team's performance.

    "They are as shrewd in making money as
    in playing," one fan said yesterday. "But
    this time they have gone too far."

        i just dont get why people take the game so seriously. if only they would take other things more seriously, and want to do something about it.
        patha hai, easier said than done.
