Bilateral ties with India will improve Pakistan cricket: Asif
Karachi: Disgraced pacer Mohammad Asif has said it was very important for the PCB to have bilateral cricketing ties with India as it could generate revenues that would help improve Pakistan cricket.
"India now gives 70 per cent of the revenue generated by the ICC and once we have bilateral ties with India everything will improve in Pakistan cricket. The money will come in and that is very important," said Asif.
Asif, however, refused to reveal details about how he got involved into the spot fixing racket in 2010, saying he will tell the ICC/Pakistan Cricket Board anti-corruption officials when he meets them in the coming week.
Despite being grilled for two hours by a television channel regarding the spot-fixing scandal in England and if there were other members of the team involved in the racket, Asif insisted he would only give the details to the concern officials.
"I will be meeting with the ICC/Pakistan Cricket Board anti-corruption officials this week and whatever I have to say I will say to them," he said.
"I will tell everything I know about the spot fixing racket and what happened in 2010 but I can`t say anything here and now," Asif added.
The pacer admitted he felt guilty and ashamed for his actions.
"There are others who have never even bothered to apologise to the nation for their actions," Asif said without elaborating who he was referring too.
