Shoaib Akhtar's Ball Tampering Scandal in 5th ODI against England

Shoaib Akhtar Ball Tampering Scandal: A British newspaper again alleges Pakistani speed star Shoaib Akhtar of ball tampering in the Fifth One Day International.

Pictures brought on screen by the Daily Mail Online, showed that Shoaib tried to tamper the seam with his left hand thumbnail in the 41st over of the match as he prepared to bowl to Collingwood. Then he polished the ball against his thigh, but instead of holding the ball between his thumb and forefinger, he dug his nails into the seam and then dropped it on the ground. Then he stood on the ball.

Shoaib bowled brilliantly and quite economically in the last ODI sending three English batsmen back to pavilion including captain Andrew Strauss.
Four years ago he was filmed by Sky cameras flicking at the ball with his thumb during a one-day international here against England.
