Pakistan has more problems than just match fixingCricket is a matter of special pride in Pakistan and cricketers from the country have done their level best to portray a positive image of the country besides providing a source of hope for those whose everyday life is both tedious and joyless.

This is best evident from the fact that Pakistanis literally dance on the street when the Pakistan cricket team wins and burn effigies when the team loses a game.

It is, however, a breather for the Pakistanis that former World Cup winning captain Younis Khan and Shahid Afridi, both fearless Pathans schooled in the honor code have not been named in the match fixing scandals.
