Butt, Asif and Aamir were all found guilty of spot fixing during the fourth test against England at Lords in August, 2010 and later banned for a minimum of five-years by the International Cricket Council.
The divide in Pakistan cricket over whether the tainted trio of Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Aamir should be allowed back into national cricket has become greater with the former skipper expressing concern it could eventually lead to their isolation.
Free to represent his country in international cricket post his five-year ban for fixing in 2010, Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Amir said he has been training hard lately and is confident of becoming the bowler he was at the start of his career.
Gearing up for a comeback to international cricket in three months time, Pakistan's banned left-arm pacer Mohammad Aamir said he felt happy to learn that new Bangladesh pace sensation Mustafizur Rehman idolises him.
Pakistan's banned former captain Salman Butt has said that those players who have been banned for spot fixing, have a right to try and make a comeback to international cricket once they complete their suspension period.
Acknowledging the receipt of PCB's request letter for tainted pacer Muhammad Aamir's early return to cricket, ICC CEO Dave Richardson on Monday said that the international body has taken note of the issue but the matter will take some time to get resolved.
