ICC to review Pak pacer Amir's ban after adopting 'revised' anti-corruption code

Johannesburg, Oct 20 : The International Cricket Council (ICC) has said that it will review Pakistani seam bowler Mohammad Amir's five-year match-fixing ban after it adopts a 'revised' anti-corruption code.


Although ICC officials are planning to discuss a more robust and strengthened code in January 2014, a statement by the global cricket governing body left open the possibility that the adoption of the revised version of the code could be delayed.

According to Sport24, the statement will come as a disappointment to Amir, who had been buoyed in the build-up to this weekend's meeting by the fact that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had taken up his case with the ICC.

In February 2011, Amir was banned for five years, along with his teammates Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif, for deliberately bowling no-balls in return for the promise of money during the 2010 Lord's Test against England, the report added.
