Cricket players insist they are innocent
Pakistan's High Commissioner in London, Wajid Hasan, has read out a statement in which the three Pakistani cricketers accused of corruption insist they are "entirely innocent".
Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif, and Mohammad Amir are at the centre of a police investigation into allegations Asif and Amir deliberately bowled no-balls.
Asif and Amir are alleged to have bowled three no-balls on purpose at pre-determined times to facilitate betting coups after a "middle-man" accepted £150,000 in cash from an undercover reporter from the News of the World.
