Three no-balls and the aftermath; Spot-fixing tainted Pakistan cricket to an extent that it had never witnessed before. Here are the events that have taken place in the spot-fixing saga.
August 28, 2010: The fourth Test between Pakistan and England at Lord's comes under the police scanner for spot-fixing following a News of the World sting alleging that Mazhar Majeed, a player agent, offered money to Salman Butt, Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif to bowl no-balls on demand. In the video recording Majeed is clearly heard predicting that Amir would bowl the first over of the England innings, and that he would deliver a no-ball from the first ball of the third over - which as ESPNcricinfo's ball-by-ball commentary noted: "was an enormous no-ball, good half a metre over the line." He also appeared to correctly predict a no-ball from the sixth ball of the tenth over, bowled this time by Asif. Majeed is arrested on suspicion of a controversy to defraud bookmakers.
August 29, 2010: Police investigations centre around the currency notes handed by NOTW to Majeed, and whether they match with those found in the named players' hotel rooms. Majeed is revealed to be close to many players in the Pakistan team. The ICC reveals that Majeed and "several" Pakistan players had been on their anti-corruption watchlist for some time. Meanwhile, Pakistan insist that the limited-overs leg of the tour will go on.
