London, Sept. 6 : England cricket fans used Sunday’s Twenty20 clash between England and Pakistan to taunt Pakistani cricketers in Cardiff about spot-fixing allegations.
After the coin toss, the Sun quoted a punter as saying laughingly: "Pakistan have won the toss and decided to bet."
The spotlight was on the tourists'' bowlers - though they sent down no no-balls - in their first international appearance since the controversy that rocked the sport over a week ago.
As Pakistan started bowling, spectators chanted: "William Hill, William Hill, William Hill" in reference to the betting scandal.
There were more ironic cheers when Shoaib Akhtar spilled a dolly catch. (ANI)
