The ICC Executive Board today backed the decision of the independent tribunal to impose bans on three Pakistani cricketers for spot-fixing while also endorsing the relocation of India-England Cricket World Cup match from Eden Gardens in Kolkata, in its meeting here.

An independent tribunal had banned Pakistani cricketers Salman Butt, Mohammed Asif and Mohammed Aamir for ten, seven and five years respectively after ruling them guilty of spot-fixing during the Lord's Test against England in August last and the ICC Board said it was satisfied with the decision.

“ICC Executive Board acknowledged the good work of the ICC executive in successfully concluding the case against three Pakistan cricketers found guilty of spot-fixing under ICC Anti Corruption Code. ICC Executive Board confirmed it would not appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport against the sanctions imposed by the Independent Tribunal,” the ICC said in a statement after its two-day meeting which concluded on Wednessday.
