PCB looks for review of ICC ban on Amir

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has written a letter to ICC asking the apex body of the game to review the ban on 22-year-old fast bowler Mohammad Amir in the light of the recent revision in the anti-corruption code which ICC made recently. "We have asked the ICC to give advice on how it would be possible for Amir to make an early return to domestic cricket after the changes in the anti-corruption code," PCB official said. Amir is currently under a 5-year ban from cricket after admitting to be involved in spot-fixing during Pakistan's tour of England in 2010 in which Salman Butt and fellow pacer Mohammad Asif also received bans for their role in corrupting the game.PCB has conveyed to ICC to look into Amir ban which will end in September 2015 as per new ICC anti corruption code. Salman Butt may also return to the cricket after Amir.
