Tainted Pak spot-fixing trio 'should be booted out for good', says Rameez Raja

Karachi, Thu, 03 Nov 2011 ANI

Karachi, Oct 31(ANI): Former Pakistan batsman Rameez Raja has said that Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Aamir, who have been guilty of spot-fixing, should never play for the country again.


"I think they should be booted out for good," Ramiz told BBC Radio 5 live.


The spot-fixing controversy centres on allegations that Butt, Asif and Amir took bribes from a bookmaker, Mazhar Majeed, to deliberately under-perform at certain times in the 2010 Lord's Test against England.


Undercover reporters from News of the World, led by Mazher Mahmood, had secretly video-taped Majeed accepting money and informing the reporters that Asif and Amir would deliberately bowl no-balls at specific points in an over.


This information could have been used by gamblers to place bets.


In response to these allegations, Scotland Yard arrested Majeed on the charge of match-fixing.


The International Cricket Council (ICC) banned Butt, Asif and Amir for terms of between five and ten years.


Butt and Asif have also been found guilty by the London court on criminal charges relating to spot-fixing.


Amir and Mahjeed had entered guilty pleas on the same charges. (ANI)
