Banned Pakistan cricketer Amir returns home

Pakistan's banned cricketer Mohammad Amir returned home on Sunday after serving his jail sentence for spot-fixing in London.

Amir was sentenced for six months, but was released earlier this month due to good behavior after serving half his sentence, for spot-fixing with two teammates - Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif - during a test against England at Lords in August 2010. Butt and Asif are still serving their jail sentences.

The 19-years-old Amir did not speak to the waiting media on arriving at Lahore's Allama Iqbal International Airport.

Local television showed the 19-year-old fast bowler - sitting on the back seat of a white car - being driven away to his house in Lahore.

Amir is banned by the International Cricket Council until September 2015 for bowling deliberate no-balls.
