Aamir`s ban not lifted yet, says ICC

Islamabad: Contrary to previous reports, the International Cricket Council (ICC) has denied that the ban has been lifted on Pakistan pacer Mohammad Aamir and that he has been allowed to play domestic cricket.

It had been reported in the media that the ICC has officially informed the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) about permitting Aamir to play domestic cricket, the Daily Times reports.

However, an ICC official dismissed the reports, saying that even though the international governing body may reconsider its decision or continue to stick to its previous decision regarding Aamir this October, however, no such decision has been taken yet.

Meanwhile, acting PCB chairman Najam Sethi has said that he is seeking ICC`s favour in Aamir`s case.
