Independent hearing upholds provisional suspensions

The chairman of the ICC Code of Conduct Commission, Michael Beloff, QC, has heard in Dubai the challenge by two Pakistan players – Salman Butt and Mohammad Amir – against the provisional suspensions imposed on 2 September 2010 under the ICC Anti-Corruption Code.

After considering all the evidence Mr Beloff has rejected both challenges. As such, the players remain provisionally suspended from all cricket pending the outcome of the independent Anti-Corruption Tribunal which will hear their disciplinary cases in due course.

As he chose not to challenge his provisional suspension, a third player – Mohammad Asif – also remains provisionally suspended.

The ICC will make no further comment on this matter at this time.
