LONDON (Agencies) - M Aamir was no "naive and innocent teenager" but was probably involved in fixing events at cricket matches on his own, and without the involvement of his captain, Salman Butt, Southwark crown court heard on Tuesday. Ali Bajwa QC is defending Butt against charges of cheating at gambling and accepting corrupt payments and he cast a stone at the Pakistan seamer, Aamir. Bajwa said that on the night the cricketers' agent Mazhar Majeed received 140,000 from an undercover journalist posing as a match fixer, Aamir had called for him to meet him in his hotel room. Once the allegations about fixing broke during the fourth Test between Pakistan and England at Lord's last year, Bajwa said, there were also Aamir's warnings to friends not to contact him on his phone. "This isn't some naive and wholly innocent 19-year-old," he said. "Aamir sent a text saying: 'Aamir here. Don't call my phone. ICC police have taken my phone. Are you able to delete those calls you made to me? If you can, do it Ok, don't reply.'" Bajwa added: "We say it is wrong for the prosecution to say that Aamir would not have been involved without pressure and influence from Salman Butt." Bajwa alleged that Aamir's direct contact with telephone numbers in Pakistan was apparently evidence that the bowler, then ranked the third best in the world, was orchestrating his own fixes. "There is other evidence that Aamir didn't need Majeed or Butt," Bajwa said. "We say, with regret about a young man starting to show his talent on the world stage, that he didn't need Majeed and Butt. There is a text message between Aamir and a Pakistan number, going right back to 17 August, before Majeed and the journalist have discussed fixing, and nine days before the Lords' Test. Aamir sends a text to Pakistan saying: 'How much and what needs to be done?' Later he sends another saying: 'Yes, but what needs to be done?' Then he says: 'This is going to be too much mate.' His final text to the number is: 'So in first 3, bowl however you want, and in the last 2, do 8 runs?'" Bajwa said the prosecution case against Butt hangs on Majeed's prediction to the journalist Mazher Mahmood of the now defunct News of the World that Asif would deliver a no-ball in the sixth ball of the 10th over of England's first innings at Lord's. Bajwa sought to undermine this as a prediction that could have been made by anyone even without inside knowledge of the Pakistan dressing room, signalling the pattern that Asif had bowled at least five overs in the first innings of the previous six Test matches. "On some occasions he has not just stopped at the 10th over, he has often bowled 16 or 20," Bajwa said. "Majeed didn't get that information from Salman Butt, and he didn't need to rely on Salman Butt for it to take place." Bajwa sought to explain the large amounts of cash found in Butt's hotel room by police. A sum of 2,500 was found to have derived from the 140,000 the journalist paid to Majeed between the third and fourth Tests. This, stressed Bajwa, had been explained by Butt as being a down payment on a 5,000 appearance fee for opening an ice-cream parlour in Tooting belonging to his agent, Majeed. During the trial the prosecution has highlighted other five-figure sums held in and out of envelopes within a locked attache case inside a suitcase in his room. Bajwa told the jury that it was illogical for the prosecution to claim these sums were the proceeds of crime. "If this is the product of fixing it makes no sense for Salman Butt to be carrying it around in his hotel room," Bajwa said. "Not only was Salman Butt so obliging not to keep it in a Swiss bank account or in his Clydesdale Bank account, but he would keep it in a case alongside his notebook supposedly detailing his fixing payments from Mazhar Majeed. "I'm sorry members of the jury but that is not the case. It is easy to say that is suspicious but the truth is somewhere else. Is the truth really that SB had, as he said from the start, received that money from the Capital Cricket bat contract that he had signed with, of all people, Mazhar Majeed? If it was suspicious, by the time he arrived at the police station he would have come up with some other explanation than that he had received it from Majeed." Bajwa said that of the almost 9,000 pieces of telephonic evidence assembled by the crown there were only two recorded calls and three texts that might have incriminated Butt, and that each can have an innocent explanation.
