Rizwan T Khan | 10 years ago | Reply Before suspending any player, Pakistani nation should suspend Ejaz Butt for good since Zardari is too busy.
Ashutosh | 10 years ago | Reply These players are not kids or mentally challenged, guys. They have to own the responsibilities even if they did under someones influence. There are glaring evidence against them and they surely are not defend-able. It is better that Pakistan leaves them to defend themselves, otherwise, Pakistan will be standing on the wrong side of the line.
