Amir mulling revealing all about Lord's Test 'spot-fixing' scandal

Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Amir is reportedly contemplating co-operating with police and International Cricket Council investigators in the spot-fixing scandal which has rocked the game of cricket.


London, Sep 14: Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Amir is reportedly contemplating co-operating with police and International Cricket Council investigators in the 'spot-fixing' scandal which has rocked the game of cricket.

Amir has returned to Pakistan under heavy security, and is believed to be staying in a remote village in Punjab province, where he is considering his next move.

According to the Courier Mail, the 18-year-old wants to tell his story and possibly give evidence against Test captain Salman Butt and fellow fast bowler Mohammad Asif, who are under investigation for alleged involvement in a 150,000-pound betting scam.

Given his tender age, inexperience and potential co-operation with authorities, it is believed that Amir could receive a watered-down penalty compared to the life bans on others if they are found guilty.

However, choosing to save his skin could have dire consequences, as it would not go down well with the illegal bookies and gangsters behind the scandals.

British tabloid 'News of The World' has alleged that the three cricketers were involved in a 150,000-pound 'spot-fixing' racket with London-based Mazhar Majeed.

The tabloid claims that they have video evidence to prove that the players were bribed to bowl 'no-balls' in the Lord's Test against England.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has provisionally suspended the three players pending a decision on the charges.

"In accordance with the provisions of the code, this means they are immediately barred from participating in all cricket and related activities until the case has been concluded," the ICC had said in a statement.
