Pakistan cricketers Salman Butt and Mohammad Aamer arrived at the Dubai headquarters of the International Cricket Council on Saturday for a hearing into their suspension on charges of spot fixing, an AFP reporter witnessed.



The two, along with fast bowler Mohammad Asif, were provisionally suspended by the ICC over allegations they were involved in spot fixing during Pakistan's recent tour of England.



The scandal broke in a report by British tabloid

The News of the World

, prompting Scotland Yard to launch an investigation into allegations of spot-fixing during the Lord's Test against England in August.



Police raided the team's hotel in London and questioned Salman, Aamer, Asif and bowler Wahab Riaz. But they have yet to formally level any charges.



Owing to their suspensions, the trio have been excluded from Pakistan's current tour of the United Arab Emirates, where they are playing South Africa.
