British jury orders Amir and Mazhar to appear in November

A UK jury has instructed fast bowler Muhammad Amir and agent Mazhar Majeed to appear in person before it for a hearing into the spot-fixing lawsuit. Amir and Mazhar have been called on November 3 and 4 after the jury started his summary of the trial at Southwark Crown Court. The judge presiding over the spot-fixing trial has ordered the court at a London court to admit that Amir and Mazhar were associated in spot-fixing.

The 2 haven’t made an appearance in the court that has now been on for 17 days along with Pakistani cricketers, Salman Butt and Muhammad Asif facing allegations of conspiracy to deceive, and conspiracy to obtain and admit corrupt payments. Reportedly the legal representatives for Salamn Butt and Asif wish to cross question them (Amir and Mazhar) as does the prosecution,” a source says.

The 2 have currently posted written claims to the court confessing their guilt and part in the spot-fixing scandal. The Pak trio and their agent were charged of disloyal and spot-fixing when the now defunct `News of the World` paper said that Asif and Amir bowled planned no-balls during the 4th Test match between Pak and Eng at Lord`s in last August.
