The jury in the trial of Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif has been told by the judge that he will accept a majority decision after jurors failed to reach a unanimous verdict in the case against the Pakistan players.

The jury told Mr Justice Clarke yesterday that they could not agree, and he said he will now accept a 10-2 majority decision. Butt and Asif deny charges of accepting corrupt payments and conspiracy to cheat.
