Pak­istan support for Aamer ques­tioned

The Star Early Edition - - SPORT -

FOR­MER Pak­istan cap­tain-turned-com­men­ta­tor Ramiz Raja yes­ter­day crit­i­cised the lob­by­ing for the re­turn of pace­man Mo­ham­mad Aamer, banned for spot-fix­ing, say­ing his re­turn would ex­pose the team to the “virus”. Aamer, along with Sal­man Butt and Mo­ham­mad Asif, was banned in a spot-fix­ing scan­dal on Pak­istan’s tour of Eng­land in 2010. The In­ter­na­tional Cricket Coun­cil (ICC), at the re­quest of the Pak­istan Cricket Board (PCB), ear­lier this month re­vised their anti-cor­rup­tion code, paving the way for all the banned play­ers to fea­ture in first-class cricket a few months be­fore their bans ex­pire.
