Punter says 'Pakistan have won the toss and decided to bet'.

London, Sept.6 (ANI): England cricket fans used Sunday's Twenty20 clash between England and Pakistan to taunt Pakistani cricketers in Cardiff about spot-fixing allegations.

After the coin toss, the Sun quoted a punter as saying laughingly: "Pakistan have won the toss and decided to bet."

The spotlight was on the tourists' bowlers - though they sent down no no-balls - in their first international appearance since the controversy that rocked the sport over a week ago.

As Pakistan started bowling, spectators chanted: "William Hill, William Hill, William Hill" in reference to the betting scandal.

There were more ironic cheers when Shoaib Akhtar spilled a dolly catch. (ANI)
