Pakistani cricketer Mohammad Asif, who was jailed for 12 months for spot fixing, submitted an appeal on Thursday to the Swiss-based Court of Arbitration for Sport against the 7-year ban imposed on him by the International Cricket Council (ICC). Asif was found guilty of bowling no-balls on predetermined deliveries in exchange for vast amounts of money during Pakistan’s tour of England in 2010. Asif submitted the appeal through his lawyer Ravi Gill and said the ban imposed on him was illegal. He also said that the evidence against him was weak. The Pakistani cricketer was released from jail on May 3. He was kept in a prison compound for international convicts a few miles outside of London at Canterbury.
