It is when Pakistani media managers say that the “allegations are baseless” that you know you have to sit up and take notice. No, this one is not about terrorists and gangsters living in the country under the ISI’s protection (although that is not entirely ruled out). This one is about the death in Kingston, Jamaica—under suspicious circumstances—of Bob Woolmer, Pakistan’s cricket coach. Responding to allegations (made by a former Pakistani cricket official) that the player-bookie nexus had something to do with the Woolmer’s death, Javed Mir, the team’s media manager said, well, “Allegations are always baseless. Prove it”.
