Pakistan spot-fixing trial

| No Comments

Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif, two cricket players from Pakistan, went to trial last week after being accused of fixing a game.

According to The Guardian, Butt and Asif were both accused of cheating at gambling and accepting corrupt payments for bowling the allegedly pre-arranged no-ball in the fourth Test against England at Lord's in 2010.

The Times of India reported that the two players are presently awaiting a verdict from the jury at the Southwark crown court which is hearing cases of cheating and conspiracy.

The two said they had a good relationship before the incident, but Asif claimed that Butt, his former captain, often shouted profanities at him during games.

Aftab Gul, who represented Butt, said the court didn't have enough evidence to prove that the players were guilty.
