'Spot-fixing convict' Asif files appeal against seven year ban imposed by ICC
London, Jan 7(ANI): Convicted Pakistani pace bowler Muhammad Asif has filed an appeal against his International Cricket Council (ICC) ban in the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) based in Lausanne, Switzerland.
The ICC has banned Asif from participating in all forms of the game for seven years for his alleged involvement in a spot-fixing scam during the 2010 Lord's Test against England.
Asif was also handed over one- year prison sentence by London's Southwark Crown Court over the scandal.
He is currently lodged at Her Majesty's Canterbury prison, a category C jail, which specialises in housing foreign criminals convicted in Britain.
Asif's counsel, SJS Solicitors Principal Savita Sukul confirmed to The News that her firm has submitted the formal appeal against the ICC seven-year ban.
"The appeal filed in the CAS against the ICC ban is founded upon multiple grounds that include the argument that the ICC Disciplinary Tribunal breached its own procedures, and in other ways infringed fundamental human rights to which Muhammad Asif is entitled," the paper quoted an SJS spokesperson, as saying.
"In such a situation the ICC ban is not only flawed, it could also be unlawful," he added. (ANI)
