A regretful Mohammad Amir has blamed PCB for not educating him enough against corruption and vowed to reveal "more" about the case, in which co-accused Salman Butt and Mohammaed Asif "tried to damage his reputation" further.

Amir was sent to young offenders' detenetion centre for six months while Butt and Asif were sent to jail for 30 months and 12 months respectively after being found guilty of spot-fixing during last year's Lord's Test against England.

The young bowler held the Pakistan cricket authorities for not doing enough to create awareness among players about the pitfalls of getting into corruption.

"The PCB never told me just how serious a offence it was to get into these sort of things. They didn't educate me enough about anti-corruption laws," he added.

He also expressed disappointment at the way Butt and Asif slandered him during the trial in a London court.

"They tried to rubbish my reputation and name during the trial and when the time comes I will reveal everything about this case," said Amir, who picked up 51 wickets in his short career of 14 Tests.
