The former mentor and family of Pakistan cricketer Mohammad Aamer proclaimed his innocence on Tuesday after British police questioned him on spot-fixing allegations following a newspaper sting.

Asif Bajwa, who coached the pacer into an international cricketer from his school days, said the scandal was an effort to spoil the career of a man who has been recognised by the International Cricket Council as a top-class player.

"He has been nominated as the best emerging player in the world. He has become the most important member of Pakistan team, he is a future star. They want to tarnish his image by involving him in conspiracies," said Bajwa.
