Jailing of Pakistani Cricketers Brings Shame to Pakistan If Shaquille O'Neal went to jail for fixing a basketball game, it would make headlines in the US. In Pakistan, the conviction of three star players for cheating at cricket has created a sense of national shame. Although the details of cricket will have to remain unexplained, suffice it to say that when three Pakistani heroes were convicted of conspiracy to cheat and accept corrupt payments, former colleagues said they "deserved no mercy" for "shaming Pakistan cricket." Today, they and an agent were sentenced to terms ranging from 18 months to four years by a court in London. Pritha Sarkar is sports correspondent for Reuters .
