Fury over a cricket call
The week's news at a glance.
A referee in a cricket match sparked national outrage this week when he accused the Pakistan team of tampering with a ball during a game against England. The Pakistan team refused to return to the field after a tea break, saying that referee Darrell Hair had slandered them. Its the first time a national cricket team has stormed off mid-game, and the nation is mobilizing in support. President Pervez Musharraf called the allegation an insult to Pakistan. Cricket superstar Imran Khan wrote an article in the Islamabad Nation calling Hair a mini-Hitler. Schoolchildren have burned pictures of Hair, chanting, Shame, shame, we want justice.
