Aamer dragged into fixing by Butt?

Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Aamer has allegedly confessed that he was involved in fixing row to the PCB and also revealed that captain Salman Butt dragged him into spot-fixing according to a media report.

According to the report, sources in the PCB said that Aamer had told chairman Ijaz Butt that he never wanted to be part of this "business" (spot-fixing) but was forced into it by Butt and Asif.

"Aamer had gone to Butt and claimed he was innocent and a victim of the 'seniors' power lobby' in the team," a source said.

There were further reports that Aamer had also informed about the pressure exerted on him by Salman Butt to team manager Yawar Saeed.

Aamer is currently under suspension along with Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif imposed by the ICC for his alleged involvement in spot-fixing during the fourth Test against England at Lord's last month.

Meanwhile, legal advisor to PCB, Tafazzul Rizvi, has dismissed the reports and said that the report is completely baseless.
