London: Pakistan bowler Mohammad Amir has on Friday pleaded guilty in the spot-fixing case during Pakistan’s Test series in England last year. According to reports, along with the Amir, bookie Mazhar Majeed too confessed to his involvement in a court in London.
Spot-fixing scandal was exposed by British tabloid “News of the World” in 2010, which had accused two other Pakistani players Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif.
The International Cricket Council (ICC) had banned Amir from all forms of cricket for a period of five years. The tabloid had alleged that Amir and fellow bowler Mohammad Asif deliberately bowled no-balls at specific times during Pakistan’s 2010 tour of England in return for payment from a betting syndicate.
