Amir, Asif not to attend teleconference

KARACHI: Cricketers Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir have refused to attend the International Cricket Council (ICC) teleconference scheduled today to share their views on a request by Salman Butt to delay a spot-fixing hearing.


The conference was to be attended by the lawyers representing Pakistan's suspended trio Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir.


The ICC opted for a teleconference to discuss a request by Salman Butt to delay spot-fixing hearing, which is supposed to take place from January 6 in Doha.


Mohammad Amir is against the idea of delaying next month's spot-fixing hearing as he is looking for a quick verdict on the issue.


Speaking at Geo's morning show Tuesday, Amir said that he wants a quick verdict so that he can make the cut for Pakistan's team for World Cup 2011 that gets underway in February.

If ICC has evidence then what's the delay. I think the whole process carried out by ICC has been unfair. I am not implying if these guys are innocent, but what is taking so long if ICC and rest of the speculators are so confident.

Pakistan as a team should take back their decision to play world cup without these trio,no chance to win even the first round to play quaterfinal in WC

i agree with mr solangi , by seeing all these facts about the icc , one might think twice if these people really are involved in such thing , but this for sure that icc is involved in a conspiracy against pakistanis , just like they are involved in a conspiracy against the muslim world .

Insiders say Salman Butt will be banned for 7 years and lighter sentence of 2 years ban each for Asif & Aamir. That is ICC, but in my view, PCB should never include them ever in Pak team again.

hey hold your horses all of you you all feel that the trio is guilty but i feel that spot fixing is not a has been going on for years and to put the blame on three is not right...they have not been proven guilty please refrain from your judgement....Secondly don't forget that ICC is controlled by who.....

i think Muhammad Amir is right about his opinion that the hearing should not be delayed because the world cup is ahead now. if trio committed the crime then ICC should prove the allegation against them as soon as possible, the whole process that was carried out by the ICC was unfair.
