The Court of Ar­bi­tra­tion for Sports (CAS) will hear, next Fe­bru­ary, the ap­peals of banned Pak­istan crick­eters Sal­man Butt and Mo­ham­mad Asif against the ICC's bans for spot-fix­ing. Asif's case will be heard be­tween Fe­bru­ary 5-7, and Butt's on the 8th, it was con­firmed on Mon­day. The CAS, head­quar­tered in Lau­sanne, Switzer­land, is recog­nised as the world's high­est ju­di­cial body for sports­men and cases in­volv­ing sport.

Asif, along with Butt, was found guilty at South­wark Crown Court in Novem­ber 2011, on charges of con­spir­acy to cheat and con­spir­acy to ac­cept cor­rupt pay­ments over de­lib­er­ate noballs bowled dur­ing the Lord's Test be­tween Pak­istan and Eng­land in Au­gust 2010. Mo­ham­mad Amir, the third player ac­cused by the Crown Pros­e­cu­tion Ser­vice, had pleaded guilty to the charges.
