Tainted Pakistani cricketers Salman Butt, Mohammad Aamer and Mohammad Asif will have to wait for some more days to learn their fate after ICC’s anti-corruption tribunal today reached no decision and called for another hearing on the spot-fixing row on February 5 here.
The tribunal was expected to come out with its verdict on Tuesday after it’s three-man independent tribunal led by the code of conduct commissioner Michael Beloff of England, and aided by Justice Albie Sachs from South Africa and Kenyan Sharad Rao have been hearing the parties since January 6.
“Representations have been made to it to reserve any decision on the charges still before it until it has had sufficient time to give the issues careful consideration and until it is able, at the same time as handing down its decision, to provide written reasons,” said Beloff. “This would not be feasible in the timeframe agreed.”
