Pakistan Cricketers Found Guilty of Corruption

Two members of the Pakistan national cricket team have this week been found guilty of participating in spot fixing and accepting corrupt payments involving a test match against the England cricket team last year.

Travel back to August 2010 and the two teams were battling head to head in the fourth and final test of Pakistan’s summer tour of England.

Throughout the match several no-balls had been played by both teams and these were seen as nothing more than a regular occurrence within the game.

However, it soon became apparent that these no-balls were being thrown deliberately after the now defunct News of The World released a video showing Pakistan bowlers Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir accepting bribes for bowling no balls at specific times within the match.

Pakistan captain, Salman Butt, was also involved in this video. All three players were subsequently banned from all forms of cricket.

Mohammad Amir along with his agent,Mazhar Majeed, had admitted guilty to the charges prior to the trial taking place

All three players now face the prospect of jail terms.

There have also been claims that an unnamed fourth player was involved in the scandal.

The hearing has now been adjourned until Thursday when sentencing will then take place.
