Along with a fourth man, sporting agent Mazhar Majeed, the three players, who appeared in court wearing dark suits and dark open-necked shirts, face charges of conspiracy to obtain and accept corrupt payments, and conspiracy to cheat.


In addition to the criminal case, the men have been given lengthy bans after having been found guilty of corruption by the International Cricket Council.

They have all lodged appeals against the bans with the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

Amir’s lawyer Gareth Peirce said her client had had to deal with problems with British immigration in order to attend Thursday’s hearing.

“He got here overcoming considerable odds. Immigration authorities managed to lose his application,” Peirce told the court, saying Amir’s whole future depended on the trial.

“Mr Amir has gone the extra mile to ensure he is here.”

Meanwhile, Asif’s lawyer said the evidence against his client was weak, neither indicating he was part of a conspiracy nor that he had received any money.

If found guilty of the charges, the men face prison sentences of up to seven years.
