DOHA (Agencies) - Pakistan cricketers Salman Butt and M Aamir on Wednesday voiced confidence they would again play for their country ahead of a make-or-break anti-corruption tribunal in Doha. The pair, along with M Asif, face the hearing on Thursday on charges of spot-fixing during Pakistan's tour of England last year in a scandal that rocked the sport. It is alleged that they conspired in the bowling of deliberate no-balls - claims they all deny. Butt , the Pakistan captain, said he was desperate to play top-level cricket again and the scandal had taught him some harsh lessons. "I have always played the game for the love of it and have never been involved in any wrongdoing," he said. "I am confident that I will soon be playing for my country. I have been practising all through this difficult phase of my life so that whenever I am cleared I am able to play. "This phase has taught me a lot of lessons and I hope I will learn from them." All three were provisionally suspended by the International Cricket Council (ICC) in October, with the world governing body's code of conduct carrying a minimum five-year ban if corruption charges are proved. The maximum punishment is life out of the game. Their suspension came after reports in the British newspaper News of the World, which claimed several Pakistani players - including the trio - obeyed orders from an alleged bookmaker during the Lord's Test in August. The newspaper said it paid Mazhar Majeed, an agent for several Pakistan players, 150,000 pounds (230,000 dollars) in return for advance knowledge of pre-arranged no-balls which could then be bet upon. Butt and pace bowlers Aamer and Asif were named by the newspaper as the players involved. Police raided the team's hotel in London and questioned the three men, along with bowler Wahab Riaz, but they have yet to level any charges.
