Disgraced Pakistan players Salman Butt and Mohammad Aamer lost their appeals on Wednesday against their jail sentences for their part in a betting scam that rocked the world of cricket.

The Court of Appeal dismissed their appeals at a hearing in London.

On November 3, former Test captain Butt, 27, was sentenced to two and a half years in prison and promising fast bowler Aamer, 19, was ordered to serve six months in a young offenders' institution.
