ICC denies Mohammad Amir’s ban lift reports

Mohammad AmirThe ICC has on yesterday made it clear that the decision of removing the ban from Mohammad Amir rests with the ICC Board on the suggestion of the three-member panel constituted a few weeks ago. There were reports that Mohammad Amir has been allowed to play domestic cricket under close monitoring of the authorities concerned.

But an official of the ICC disclosed that no such decision has yet been taken and the matter is with the three-member panel made by the ICC Annual Board meeting held in England a few weeks ago. The ICC showed some relaxation towards the tainted young bowler only after the PCB interim chief Najam Sethi asked for the ICC to consider reducing the ban on him (Mohammad Amir).

The ICC official told that the ICC sub-committee, which was create after the 2013 annual meeting to review the case would most probably, meet in October 2013. Mohammad Amir, along with Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif were found responsible for spot-fixing and were banned from the cricket. They’re even jailed with a corrective sentence in Britain.
