Pakistan cricketers Salman Butt, Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif and agent Mazhar Majeed were all jailed on Thursday in Britain for their role in fixing parts of a Test match against England last year. Cricket agent Majeed, 36, was handed the harshest penalty with a sentence of two years and eight months by Judge Jeremy Cooke at London's Southwark Crown Court. Pakistan former Test captain Salman Butt, 27, received 30 months, fast bowler Mohammad Asif, 28, received one year in jail and 19-year-old Mohammad Amir was jailed for six months. "These offences, regardless of pleas, are so serious that only a sentence of imprisonment will suffice," Cooke told the four in court. He added: "Each of you will serve half the time imposed in custody and then be released on licence." Players were also ordered to pay compensation towards cost of prosecution. Butt - 30,937, Asif - 8120 and Amir 9389.
