CRICKET: Mohammad Asif spot-fixing appeal rejected
Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Asif has lost an appeal against his spot-fixing conviction.
The 30-year-old Asif plus fellow paceman Mohammad Amir, 21, and ex-Pakistan captain Salman Butt, 28, were found guilty of being part of a betting scam in 2011.
Judges at the Court of Appeal in London declared they were not persuaded to overturn the ruling in regards to Asif.
The trio are all serving five-year playing bans, handed to them by the International Cricket Council.
Asif was released from jail in May last year after serving half of a 12-month sentence.
He is banned for seven years, two of which are suspended.
