    Icon2 Butt/Amir/Asif - Spot Fixing Trial

    Pakistan’s Mohammad Amir pleads guilty in spot-fixing case

    KARACHI: Pakistan’s fast-bowler Mohammad Amir has pleaded guilty to spot-fixing in a London court.

    During Pakistan’s tour of England in 2010, British tabloid “News of the World” accused then-captain Salman Butt, fast-bowler Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir of spot-fixing.

    News of the World alleged they bowled no-balls at prearranged times during August’s fourth Test at Lord’s.

    The International Cricket Council (ICC) had previously banned Amir from all forms of cricket for a period of five years while Asif was banned for seven years and Butt was handed a ten year ban.

    Good, I hope ICC reduce his International ban to 2yrs and allow him to play in domestic tournaments.

    ......uh

    "Mohammad Amir has pleaded guilty to spot-fixing in a London Court"

    All that does is make his weak punishment seem even weaker, to me anyway.
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Nope they were all handed a pathetic minimum 5 year ban when most cricketers wanted them banned for life. Two of them got an utterly meaningless suspended ban on top. It's nice if one of them has finally admitted guilt, but they didn't do that at the ICC trial, nor did they help with that investigation so again they should have been banned for life - the minimum penalty certainly does not apply to the three of them. Not only that but Aamer got let off a short while ago for playing in England.

    Ridiculous. It's bad enough that the **** will be making a mockery of cricket in 5 years time when he steps on a field.

    So we can add "self-confessed liar" to his train wreck of a personality.

    Should never be playing again - I can't even bring myself to address those who think the ban should be reduced.

    He's repentant. He's a potful of genius. Genius that is human and flawed. But must be given a second chance. Imagine what would've happened if we lost Shane Warne for 5 years in 2003? No Ashes 2005. no 700 wickets. No glory. Yes, he was stupid. He cheated his own wife (a worse crime imho) in personal life. Yet cricket chose to reward his genius on field. Asif, Amir all belong in the same category.

    I want them to come back, They deserve a second chance.

    That is the best defence of that trio that I have ever seen.

    But I still think that an example needs to be made out of somebody and better to do it now then let the cancer spread further.
