Md Asif withdraws appeal against ban

Dubai/Karachi: Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Asif has withdrawn his appeal against the provisional suspension, imposed on him by the International Cricket Council.

Asif, Salman Butt and Mohammad Aamer were suspended by the ICC in September after allegation surfaced that they were involved in spot fixing during the Test series against England.

"Mohammad Asif confirmed earlier today (Friday) that he has withdrawn his challenge to the provisional suspension imposed on him on 2 September 2010 pending determination of the charges brought against him under the ICC’s Anti-Corruption Code," an ICC released said.

"Arrangements are now being made for the challenges being made by Salman Butt and Mohammad Amir against their provisional suspensions to be heard in Dubai on 30 and 31 October 2010," the release added.(PTI)
