ICC demands phone record from Pak duo

The International Cricket Council(ICC) has reportedly summoned 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 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.

Butt, Aamer and Asif who have been currently charged by the ICC and are still under investigation by the Metropolitan Police over the Lord's matter
are unlikely to face criminal charges. However, they will face heavy punishment from the game's governing body if they are found guilty by an independent panel according to the 'Daily Mail'

The ICC is also investigating the Sydney Test but they are quite clear that the match was not fixed.
