The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is at loggerheads with Salman Butt as the banned Test captain is not ready to accept blame for encouraging his former teammates Mohammad Aamer and Mohammad Asif to take part in spot-fixing in 2010.
Pakistani fast bowler Mohammad Amir showed no signs of rustiness as he made his return after a five-year spot-fixing ban on Friday, bagging three wickets in his first spell in competitive cricket since 2010.
Pakistan`s chief selector Moin Khan will not face further disciplinary action after being sent home from the World Cup for visiting a casino on the eve of a crucial clash, the country`s cricket chief said Tuesday.
The reprieve given to Pakistan bowler Mohammad Amir in a spot-fixing scandal will encourage corrupt players to come clean and help maintain the game`s integrity, International Cricket Council (ICC) Chief Executive David Richardson said on Tuesday.
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.
Pakistan`s cricket chief Saturday denied that Mohammad Amir is being fast-tracked back into international cricket after a five-year ban, saying he will be monitored "on and off the field" before his re-entry.
After months of speculation, Mohammad Amir has been cleared to play domestic cricket in Pakistan. The Pakistan fast bowler's ban for spot fixing was cut short for cooperation with anti-corruption officials, the International Cricket Council said on Thursday.
Disgraced Pakistan pacer Mohammad Asif is anguished and disappointed that some former cricketers are against the idea of letting players banned for spot-fixing return to the game after being reformed and rehabilitated.
Former Pakistan captain turned commentator Ramiz Raja on Wednesday criticised the lobbying for the return of paceman Mohammad Aamer, banned for spot-fixing, saying his return would expose the team to the "virus".
Pakistan`s cricket chief on Tuesday said that an appeal will be lodged with the anti-corruption unit to clear the way for seamer Mohammad Aamer to play domestic matches before his five-year ban expires.
