Pakistan cricket captain Salman Butt has appealed against his suspension from the game for alleged fixing, International Cricket Council (ICC) chief executive Haroon Lorgat said on Wednesday.

Lorgat told Sky Sports News Butt's appeal had been received on Tuesday but Pakistan team mates Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif had yet to follow suit.

The three have been suspended until allegations have been investigated that they fixed parts of games during the tour of England which finished earlier this month.

All three have denied wrongdoing and have been supported by Pakistan cricket chiefs.
Lorgat denied in the interview with Sky that corruption was rife in cricket.
