Mohammad Asif is this week expected to become the second of the three Pakistan cricketers jailed for spot-fixing to be released.

Asif will have completed half of his one-year sentence and becomes eligible for release from Canterbury Prison under British law.

The disgraced Pakistan trio - Asif, his fellow fast bowler Mohammad Amir and captain Salman Butt - participated in a betting scam involving the deliberate bowling of no-balls for financial gain during a Lord's Test match between England and Pakistan in 2010.

Asif and Butt were found guilty at Southwark Crown Court in November 2011 of conspiracy to cheat and conspiracy to accept corrupt payments.
