The three Pakistan players suspended and charged by the ICC under its anti-corruption code over match-fixing allegations responded to cricket's governing body on Tuesday within the required deadline.

Tafazzul Rizvi, Pakistan Cricket Board's (PCB) legal adviser, said Test captain Salman Butt and bowlers Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir replied to the charges through a lawyer two days before the deadline was set to expire.
The trio was suspended on September 2 over allegations of “spot-fixing” in a Test against England last month. The players will now go through an ICC hearing over the unspecified charges contained in the governing body's code of conduct.

Latif quits

Rashid Latif resigned on Tuesday as a specialist coach for the PCB after he was asked to explain comments that were critical of the PCB over the match-fixing scandal. Latif stepped down as wicketkeeping coach at the National Cricket Academy in Lahore after being served with a notice by the PCB to front the board.
