Indian bookies in  Pakistan team hotel?

Karachi: It looks like another match fixing scandal could rock Pakistan again after the reports that Pak cricketers were approached by Indian bookmakers in Colombo during the Test series in Sri Lanka.

Pakistan team management in Sri Lanka had lodged an official complaint with hotel management in Colombo over the presence of suspected Indian makers.

Express, a mainstream Urdu daily, claimed in a report that some unidentified Indian bookies approached several Pakistani players during the second and third Tests against Sri Lanka in Colombo earlier this week.
