Islamabad, Thu, 02 Feb 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Feb 2 (ANI): Pakistan pacer Mohammad Amir has been released from Portland Young Offenders Institution in Dorset after serving half of a six-month sentence for his part in a fixing scam.


He was released on Wednesday morning, the BBC reports.


In November, Amir and team-mates Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif were jailed for a plot to bowl no balls deliberatly in a Test match against England in 2010. All three players were also given five-year playing bans.


The scam was disclosed when an undercover News of the World reporter approached sports agent Mazhar Majeed, who was also jailed for his role, pretending to be a wealthy Indian businessman seeking players for a tournament.


Majeed promised him that Asif and Amir would deliver three no-balls at specific points during the Test between Pakistan and England at Lord's on 26-29 August, and claimed to have been fixing games for over two years, with seven Pakistan players working for him. (ANI)
