Pakistan players charged by International Cricket Council

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has suspended the three Pakistan players accused of being part of a betting scam.

The ICC said it had charged Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir with various offences under its anti-corruption code.

The charges relate to "alleged irregular behaviour" in the fourth Test at Lord's last Thursday and Friday.

They have been provisionally suspended and now have 14 days to appeal.

ICC chief executive Haroon Lorgat said: "We got to a position by probably 8pm this evening where we were able to charge the three players".
