ICC asks Butt, Akmal for phone records during Asia Cup

September 07, 2010 10:31 IST

The International Cricket Council has reportedly asked Pakistan's suspended Test captain Salman Butt and wicketkeeper Kamran Akmal to give their mobile phone records for an investigation into possible spot-fixing during the Asia Cup in June.

According to the Daily Mail, Akmal and Butt were contacted by the ICC after "suspicions arose during the Asia Cup."

The ICC's Anti-Corruption and Security Unit have told the duo to release details of their mobile phone records during the tournament in Sri Lanka.

"They expect the full cooperation of both players but have yet to receive a response from the Pakistan camp," the newspaper reported.

The ICC reportedly wrote to them on August 21, days before a British tabloid's sting operation had Butt implicated in a spot-fixing scandal leading to his suspension pending an inquiry.

The newspaper also reported that 18-year-old pace sensation Mohammad Aamir "will be told he could avoid a life ban if he gives evidence against his team-mates" in the ongoing inquiry into the spot-fixing charges against him, Butt and Mohammad Asif.
