SHC accepts petition seeking life-ban on Amir

Karachi: The Sindh High Court (SHC) on Monday accepted the petition from Rana Faizul Hasan, who wants a life time ban on disgraced pacer Mohammad Amir.

Amir, who is gearing up to make international return after his ban expires later this year on September 2, has been cleared by the International Cricket Council (ICC) to play domestic cricket.

Rana has been quoted as saying by the media that the players, who have disgraced the country, shouldn’t get another chance.

Rana nominated Government of Pakistan, chairman PCB and Mohammad Amir as respondents in his petition.

The hearing for the case has been fixed for February 16.

The ICC’s anti-corruption unit ACSU allowed Mohammad Amir to return to domestic cricket played under the auspices of the Pakistan Cricket Board.

Amir’s five-year ban is scheduled to expire on September 2, 2015. The ACSU announced that it was satisfied that Amir had cooperated with the them.

“Amir fully disclosed his part in the matters that led to his disqualification, admitting his guilt, showing remorse and cooperating with the Unit’s ongoing investigations and by recording messages for the ACSU education sessions,” ICC release had said.

A highly talented and celebrated pacer, Amir fall from grace after he was convicted of being a part of spot-fixing scandal in 2010 with teammates Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif.

  • Wake up Rana

    OMG typical pakistanis double standards. There are murder, corruption and terrorist cases on hold in courts for years, but what bothers Rana is this little case that he thinks has disgraced pakistan. People like u have disgraced Pakistan, Mr. Rana. The only reason u are going after him is because he is not a son of a big politician or belongs to a wealthy family. And surprisingly somehow the court have time to accept this case and going on a good speed. Wow. God bless Pakistan and save it from fake Pakistanis like Rana.
