Spot Fixing Controversy
ICC rejects the appeals of Salman Butt and Mohammad Aamir and both the cricketers stay suspended. Michael Beloff, the ICC code of conduct commissioner was heading the hearing. He said he has considered every aspect of the case before rejecting their appeals. He also added that these players will have to appear in front of an independent anti-corruption tribunal which will look into this matter and decide the fates of the players.
The third cricketer accused, Mohammad Asif opted to withdraw the appeal and he also stands suspended. These three players were alleged to have bowled intentional no balls during Pakistan Vs England test series this year.
Pakistan cricket image has been hampered a lot due to this match fixing controversy and even their team hasn't seen a good time in recent past in terms of the outcome of their matches. Currently Pakistan is playing against South Africa and suffered defeats in T20 matches and facing a daunting task ahead in the ongoing ODI series and forthcoming test series.
