    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Some pretty interesting stuff. Seems like he was taken advantage of by Salman Butt and Mazhar Majeed.

    I doubt he was taken advantage of so much as taken in, but having pleaded guilty and not had his day in court I think his decision to speak to Atherton was understandable, and he seems to have shown some contrition, which in the long term will do him no harm

    What a complete crock of ****.

    It has already been established by the judges that this was not an isolated incident. The guy hasn't learned a thing.

    To be fair, the judges did not conclude Amir was structurally involved (right?). It might very well be the case that Amir was indeed only involved in this 'incident', which was part of a wide range of incidents organized by Butt & co.

    How the hell can you con someone into cheating? "Yeah overstep your feet by about 3 yards, that's how the game works, and I'll pop in 10k into your account, sweet cheers"

    So far all I'm getting from this is that he was everyone else's fault and he didn't do it for money.

    Interesting interview. I sympathised with him at first but I think he pushed it a bit. Dunno.

    Wasn't he in a young offender's institute though? That's basically prison just that there are no over 21s there. Different to a detention centre.

    Yeah he was in a YOI, which in many ways is worse, all those testosterone fuelled hard cases trying to be top dog - no essentially genial time-serving Norman Stanley Fletchers in there

    Judge rejects Mohammad Amir's plea that spot-fixing role was one-off | Sport | guardian.co.uk

    This is also reflected in his sentence (which was downgraded because of his plea and he got another 3 months off because of his background/age).
