Amir returns Pakistan with spots of spot-fixing

Lahore: Fast bowler Mohammad Amir Sunday reached Pakistan after serving his jail sentence at the young offenders institute in Weymouth for spot-fixing charges in London.

The 19-years-old Amir refused to speak to the waiting media on arriving at Lahore’s Allama Iqbal International Airport.

The banned cricketer would approach the International Arbitration Court on Monday where he will file an appeal against his five year ban on playing cricket.

The Pakistan Cricket Board also intends to question Amir over his role in the fixing saga.
Amir was released earlier this month after completing his sentence.

Amir is banned by the International Cricket Council until September 2015 for bowling deliberate no-balls.

Butt, the then Pakistan captain, was jailed for two and half years and Asif for one and half years after being convicted for receiving money to ensure no-balls were bowled in the Lord’s test 18 months ago.
