LAHORE: "This is the toughest period of my life but I am confident that it will be over and I will be playing for Pakistan soon," said Aamir. Talking to a group of reporters at the airport, he said: "I have always played five-day Test matches, but the upcoming hearing in Doha would not only be the longest but the toughest test of my career. I am hopeful that like the on-field matches, I would be able to perform well in this test (hearing) too," he said. Aamir said his priority was to clear his name. "My lawyer has prepared the case extensively and I hope that I will be cleared," said Aamir, who is accused of delivering deliberate no-balls during the Lord's Test for money - a charge he has denied. Suspended pacer M Aamir who will learn off his fate in the spot-fixing case in the next few days has described the last few months as the toughest period of his life. The 18-year-old also felt that the ICC anti-corruption tribunal hearing in Doha from January 6 to 11 as the longest and toughest test of his career. "I want a decision from the ICC on my suspension and on the case as soon as possible. Aamir reiterated that he had not done anything wrong, adding that he had full faith in the rule of law and hoped to come out clean after the hearing. Aamir also appealed to the nation to pray for him as well as Butt and Asif. Aamir, who hit the headlines in the 2009 World T20 Cup, has captured 51 wickets in just 14 Test matches with three five-wicket hauls. Salman Butt, M Aamir and M Asif suspended over allegations of spot-fixing left on Tuesday for Qatar to appear at an international tribunal that could ban them from the game or slap heavy fines. An International Cricket Council (ICC) anti-corruption tribunal headed by Michael Beloff QC will hear the case in Doha from January 6-11. The two other members of the tribunal are Albie Sachs of South Africa and Sharad Rao of Kenya. Former Test captain Salman Butt, and bowlers M Aamir and M Asif, were suspended by the ICC in September following spot-fixing allegations against them during the Lord's Test against England a month earlier. The suspension followed a sting operation by Britain's News of the World claiming that several Pakistani players took money from a bookmaker to bowl deliberate no-balls and bat maiden overs. Salman and Aamir had their appeals against suspension rejected in October, while Asif withdrew an initial appeal. Salman's appeal to postpone the hearing was also rejected last month. Salman is represented by British-based lawyer Yasin Patel, Asif by Allan Cameron, brother of British Prime Minister David Cameron, while Aamir's lawyer is Shahid Karim from Pakistan. Pakistan cricketers Salman Butt, M Asif and M Aamir front a make-or-break anti-corruption tribunal in Doha tomorrow with the threat of life bans hanging over their heads. The three face 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. They 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 (185,000 euros, $230,000) in return for advance knowledge of pre-arranged no-balls which could then be bet upon. Test captain Butt and pace bowlers Aamir 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. The three-man independent hearing is due to start here on January 6 and conclude on January 11, led by code of conduct commissioner, and leading lawyer, Michael Beloff, aided by Justice Albie Sachs from South Africa and Kenyan Sharad Rao. It should be taking place in Dubai, where the ICC's is headquartered, but was shifted to the Qatari capital as Asif is barred from entering the United Arab Emirates after being deported in 2008 on possession of banned drugs. ICC chief executive Haroon Lorgat told the BBC recently he was confident of the case against the players. "We need to send out a strong message and that is part of what we want to achieve," Lorgat said. "We've worked hard at collecting all the evidence that we would require to make the charges stand. I am confident that our guys have worked very hard in ensuring they have got a case they can present which should stand the test of scrutiny." Butt though has vigorously launched a defence, giving a lengthy interview to British broadcaster Sky Sports News in December, denying any wrongdoing. "I would like to say obviously I have not done anything such as this in all my life or my cricketing career," said the opening batsman. Butt explained that thousands of pounds discovered in his London hotel room after the 'sting operation' by the newspaper came from daily tour allowances, bat sponsorship and an appearance fee at the opening of an ice-cream parlour. "I wish all three of us get back and play for our country which is our passion because we love cricket," Butt said. The scandal is seen as the worst in cricket since that of South Africa's Hansie Cronje.
