The ICC Board met today in London

Lahore October 19, 2013: The ICC Board met today in London and its working Group on Anti-Coruption explained how its review of the relevant laws is progressing. It said it had received an opinion of the PCB-nominated British QC on the case of M Amir and would discuss it and submit its review in January 2014. Mr Giles Clarke, head of the PCB's Anti-Corruption Laws Review Committee Working Group, assured PCB Chairman Najam Sethi that he would work with him to find ways and means of positively reviewing the young fast bowler's case. Earlier, Mr Sethi made a passionate pitch before ICC Board to review Amir's case and enable him to play first class cricket as soon as possible. The British QC engaged by the PCB has argued that keeping in view the acceptance of guilt by M Amir the ban has become unjust and perverse.

Mr Najam Sethi since becoming the Chairman PCB has tirelessly argued for M Amir at all foras of ICC and will be reiterating his case in the next board meeting also.
