LAUSANNE, Switzerland: The Court of Arbitration for Sport expects to give verdicts within a month in two cases of Pakistan cricketers banned for spot-fixing against England.
CAS says former Pakistan captain Salman Butt is attending his appeal hearing on Friday to challenge a 10-year ban by the International Cricket Council. The ICC suspended five years of the sanction.
Butt’s teammate, fast bowler Mohammad Asif, attended his appeal against a seven-year ban on Thursday. The ICC suspended two years.
Butt, Asif and a third Pakistan player, Mohammad Amir, were found guilty in an English criminal trial of arranging to bowl no-balls for betting scams during an August 2010 Test match.
They served from three to seven months in prison.
CAS says the same three-lawyer panel is hearing both appeals but judging them separately.
