ISLAMABAD---Suspended Pakistan fast
bowler Mohammad Asif apologized publicly
yesterday for his involvement in a 2010
spot-fixing scandal and pledged to coop-
erate with the International Cricket Coun-
cil s anti-corruption unit.
In 2011, Asif was banned for seven years---
two of them suspended---for bowling pre-
determined no-balls during the Lord s test
against England. Teammates Salman Butt
and Mohammad Amir were also banned for
a minimum period of five years for similar
"I accept the punishment from the ICC
tribunal in 2011," Asif told reporters in the
southern port city of Karachi.
"I apologize for my actions that have
brought disrespect to my beloved country,
to the millions of fans in Pakistan and in the
world," he added. "When I look back at the
events of my career, I feel very sorry."
While Amir accepted his guilt immediately
and did not contest the ban, both Asif and
Butt went to the Court of Arbitration for
Sport in Switzerland, where their appeals
were rejected in April.
Asif said that players who want to rep-
resent their country "must keep away from
all sorts of corruption."
"I am ready to help any player who wants
to avoid such pitfalls," he said, adding that
he will cooperate with the ICC, its Anti-
Corruption and Security Unit and the Pak-
istan Cricket Board "in fighting corruption
in the game."
The ICC in April urged Asif to meet with
its anti-corruption officials and discuss what
happened in 2010.
Asif said he was ready to be part of the
PCB s rehabilitation program and hopes that,
once his ban is over, fans will accept him
back on the cricketing field.
"I want to make myself available for the
rehab program to be conducted by the PCB
through the support of the ICC," he said.
"I have suffered a lot because of my
wrongdoings," he added. "I promise that
once my ban finishes I will try to repair the
damage I have done. My family has also suf-
fered, so I want to start a new life with a
hope that all the fans of the game accept

CANTERBURY---English cricketer Darren Stevens
revealed yesterday he is one of two people charged
by the International Cricket Council for failing to
report a corrupt approach made to them during this
year s Bangladesh Premier League.
In the latest scandal to hit cricket, the ICC said
Tuesday that nine individuals have been charged in
relation to an alleged conspiracy within the Dhaka
Gladiators franchise --- seven with fixing-related offences
and two with failing to comply with their obligation
to report corrupt approaches that were made to them.
The ICC didn t disclose the identities of those
charged, but Stevens went public with his involvement
in the case in a statement released on his behalf by
his English county side, Kent.
"I confirm that I have been charged by the ICC with
a failure to report a corrupt approach made to me
during BPL2 in February this year," Stevens said.
"I have not been involved in any corrupt activity
and have not been charged with any and I am coop-
erating with the ICC and ACSU (Anti-Corruption and
Security Unit) in their investigation and prosecution
of the corruption charges in matters relating to the
Stevens added that he is "totally against any cor-
ruption in cricket and would never do anything other
than perform to the best of my ability in any game."

WELLINGTON---Christchurch s chances of hosting
the first match of the 2015 Cricket World Cup have
been boosted by the decision of a New Zealand court
to conditionally approve development of a new inter-
