Lahore: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has officially filed an appeal with the International Cricket Council, seeking review over its five-year ban imposed on Mohammed Amir.

PCB Chairman Ijaz Butt made this revelation during Geo Super’s programme ‘Super Exclusives’, adding that the final decision would rest with the ICC.

The PCB is bound to follow the regulations of the ICC, which is unable to respond on the Anti-Corruption Tribunal’s decision unless the tribunal completes its proceedings, Butt added.

However, Butt was hopeful for positive results in this regard, as he said that the ICC had expressed its readiness to bring the PCB’s request under discussion during the council’s meeting.
