Former captain says guilty cricketers brought shame to Pakistan

The former Pakistan cricket captain Shahid Afridi says the three cricketers found guilty of match-fixing have brought a great amount of shame on Pakistan.

The former one day international captain says the stain of corruption will not be easily removed but the verdict is a strong example for young players who might have been tempted.

Afridi says he feels sorry for the family members of the three players found guilty as they'll be tarred with some of the blame.
