ICC discussing reintegration of banned players
David Richardson, the ICC's chief executive, has said that the governing body is discussing amendments to its anti-corruption code that will allow banned players to play competitive cricket at domestic level within a certain period before the end of their bans.
The amendments, if approved, will be important for the Pakistan trio of Mohammad Amir, Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif, who were found guilty of spot-fixing during the Lord's Test of Pakistan's 2010 tour of England by an ICC tribunal.
The three players were slapped bans by the tribunal: Butt got 10 years, Asif seven and Amir received a five-year ban from playing all forms of cricket.
