Pak Sports Minister urges ICC to review five-year ban on 'young' Amir

Islamabad, Mon, 07 Feb 2011 ANI

Islamabad, Feb 7(ANI): Pakistan Sports Minister Ajaz Jakhrani has urged the International Cricket Council (ICC) to review the five-year ban imposed on fast bowler Mohammed Amir.


Amir has been banned for five years over spot-fixing charges in the Lord's Test match played against England in August last year.


Jakhrani said that he was surprised by the lengthy ban on Amir because of his young age.


"We think the ICC must review the ban on Aamir again because he is young and was influenced into doing things he might not have wanted to do," the Daily Times quoted Jakhrani, as saying.


"He should be given a chance to redeem and reform and make a comeback to cricket," he added.


The Minister also said that the overall impact of the bans was a big shock for Pakistan cricket.


The ICC has also imposed bans on former captain Salman Butt and fast bowler Mohammad Asif. (ANI)
