KARACHI (Agencies) - Pakistan cricket faces an abysmal future unless it cleans up the game and institutes sweeping reforms after three key players were banned on corruption charges, former players and commentators said on Monday. Former Test captain Salman Butt was banned for 10 years, with five years suspended, bowler Asif for seven years, with two suspended, and teenage pace sensation Aamir for five years. The bans follow alleged incidents during last year's Test against England at Lord's, when Britain's News of the World newspaper claimed players were willing to bowl no-balls deliberately. The newspaper said the three colluded in a spot-fixing betting scam organised by British-based agent Mazhar Majeed. "Pakistan's cricket image is tainted badly," former captain Zaheer Abbas conceded.
