Cricket : Suspended Aamer Features in Practice Match

Karachi, Jan 25 (IANS) Suspended fast bowler Mohammed Aamer created another stir by featuring in a practice match at Rawalpindi's international cricket stadium Monday and that too under a coach employed by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

The provisional ban imposed on the 18-year-old fast bowler by the International Cricket Council (ICC) barred him from taking part in any from of the game at all levels.

But Aamer was reportedly being supervised by Sabih Azhar, one of the coaches employed by the PCB.

Aamer, along with Mohammed Asif and former Test captain Salman Butt, has been provisionally suspended by the ICC on charges of spot-fixing. The three were charged Sep 2 by the ICC with various offences under Article 2 of the ICC Anti-Corruption Code for Players, relating to the fourth Test between England and Pakistan at Lord's.

They were officially notified of the alleged offences and were provisionally suspended pending a decision on those charges.

The trio will learn their fate as the ICC tribunal headed by Michael Bellof will hold a hearing in Doha Feb 5. The tribunal deferred the hearing after it failed to give a verdict following a six-day hearing in Doha Jan 6-11.
