Professional Cricket ??? What a joke; this latest match-fixing fiasco by the Pakistani team has totally put me off this so called "game of gentlemen".Never again will I subscribe to the overpriced late night matches at ungodly hours (due to time difference) on cable that enrich these bastard bookies. Your list is in perfect order.
