Amir and Asif appeal suspensions

3:57 am on 4 October 2010

Pakistan bowlers Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif have joined captain Salman Butt in appealing their suspensions from cricket over allegations of spot fixing.

Amir and Asif have sent their appeals and replied to the notice issued to them by the International Cricket Council anti-corruption and security unit through their lawyers.

Butt had already filed his appeal last week.

The three have been suspended until newspaper allegations have been investigated that they fixed parts of games during the tour of England which finished last month.

They have denied wrongdoing and have been supported by Pakistan cricket chiefs.
