Scotland Yard may wind up spot-fixing probe next week

The Scotland Yard is expected to complete its investigations into the spot-fixing allegations against three Pakistani players by next week.

“The Pakistan Cricket Board is expecting Scotland Yard to submit its initial findings by next week that is why the three players under suspension, Salman Butt, Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif were advised by the board’s legal team to seek more time from the ICC to respond to charges against them,” a source disclosed.

“So far the correct position is that the Scotland Yard have not shared information of their investigations and findings so far with the PCB but indications are they will wrap up things and give a report by next week.”

The source said Butt, Aamir and Asif – in their replies to the notice of charges sent to them individually by the ICC’s Anti-Corruption and Security Unit – had asked for an extension of time from the ACSU to submit detailed answers to the charges against them.  -indianexpress
