Amir decides not to appeal ban
Friday 02 March 2012
The suspended Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Amir has told the International Cricket Council he will not pursue his appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport to overturn his five-year ban, the ICC announced yesterday.
Amir returned home on Sunday having served half of his six-month prison sentence after being found guilty of spot-fixing in a Test at Lord's in 2010.
His then-captain Salman Butt and the bowler Mohammad Asif were also found guilty on corruption charges and are still in jail in Britain.
