Pak trio quizzed by Scotland yard


The three Pakistan cricketers embroiled in an alleged betting scam are being interviewed by Scotland Yard detectives.

Test captain Salman Butt and fast bowlers Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir are understood to be answering questions at a police station in north London.

Test captain Salman Butt and fast bowlers Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir were provisionally suspended and charged last night by cricket’s governing body.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) confirmed the three are accused of “various” anti-corruption offences.

It said the charges relate to alleged irregular behavior during the fourth Test between England and Pakistan at Lord’s last month.
