Why did Pakistani players got paid thousands of pounds just to bowl a couple of no-balls?


I don’t understand; why would people not ask them instead to bowl poorly through out the match, for example? I don’t see what benefit could anyone have gotten from Amir and Asif bowling a few no-balls on predetermined times.
