Former Pakistan captain Ramiz Raja has called for a complete overhaul of his country's "corrupt" cricket system.
Allegations of 'spot-fixing' in the fourth Test between Pakistan and England at Lord's have led to a Scotland Yard police investigation, and federal investigators from Pakistan have travelled to London to carry out their own probe.
Mazhar Majeed, 35, an agent to a number of the tourists' players, was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud bookmakers - and later bailed without charge - after a News of the World undercover investigation led to allegations that two Pakistan bowlers deliberately delivered no-balls at specific moments in the match, which England won by an innings and 225 runs.
Raja, who had a brief spell as chief executive of his country's cricket board from 2003 to 2004, suggests Pakistan must take action immediately to guarantee integrity throughout the sport.
Lack of leadership
"These things keep happening to Pakistan because of the lack of leadership and the lack of a good system," he said.
"Overall, I think there is a corrupt system and a lack of role models not creating that healthy environment.
"Also, the role of chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board is elected and every one of them has a different viewpoint which creates a massive lack of consistency, meaning it is hard to eradicate the problem.
"There hasn't been the will to do it and I think that is why we have not had sane decision-making on match-fixing.
"They need to clean up their act and if someone is found guilty, you have got to get rid of him."
Match-fixing allegations first came to the surface with Pakistan in the late 1990s, prompting an inquiry headed by former High Court judge Malik Mohammad Qayyum.
As a result of his report, Salim Malik and medium-pacer Ata-ur-Rehman became the first players to receive life bans for match-fixing although their penalties were eventually overturned.
Qayyum has subsequently stated his belief that the current situation would have been avoided if his report, which took two years to compile, had been followed.
But Raja does not concur with that view.
"Even though I was part of the team in the '90s, I did not get to know how it happened," Raja said.
"I remember it was after the tour when I was even told that some of the players were involved in match-fixing.
"Action was taken after that, but it was not enough - they were let off the hook. Some of the great names of the game got away with murder.
"Qayyum's recommendations were not clear enough; it was a hotchpotch kind of a report to be honest.
"He wanted to slap the players with reprimands and fines rather than actually banning them from the game."
If the newspaper allegations against Pakistan are proven, many current and former players have called for life bans to be imposed.
Mohammad Aamer, 18, became the youngest player to reach 50 Test scalps during a breathtaking performance at Lord's, drawing countless plaudits in the process.
However, after being named by the News of the World as one of the bowlers involved in the alleged deception, the Lord's display could prove his final act in the international game.
Raja said: "Even if he gets out of this scam, the spotlight will always be on him and his performance.
"That is a terribly sad thing because he is a great talent - possibly was a great talent, because I don't know if the authorities will allow him to continue playing if the allegations are proven.
"To get dragged in at such a young age is so disappointing, because he had the world at his feet.
"He could have demanded anything from anyone, counties and the Indian Premier League."
