PCB unaware of Aamer's status

The Pakistan Cricket Board(PCB) is unaware of whether suspended fast bowler Mohammad Aamer is contemplating to become an informant for the ICC investigators in the spot-fixing scandal.

Media reports had suggested that the 18-year-old may become an informant for the ICC investigators in the 'spot-fixing" scandal which has rocked the game of cricket.

"I don't think this will happen and generally speaking in legal terms even if you turn state witness it does not mean a clean sheet for that person," PCB legal advisor Tafazzul Rizvi said.

Rizvi said it was difficult to say when the Scotland Yard would complete its investigations and whether it would yield results.

But he admitted that the players, if not cleared, could be staring at bans ranging from six months to life and could also be let off with heavy fines. "It all depends on what the inquiry throws up," he said.

Rizvi said PCB had adopted a wait and see policy over the ongoing investigations.

"It could be completed in a few weeks time or it could take months but we don't know when it will end," he said when asked if the Board had the 2011 World Cup in mind while looking at the issue.

The trio have challenged the suspension and asked for a preliminary hearing into the allegations.
