Karachi: Pakistan’s left-arm pace bowler Muhammad Aamer, who was banned for five years by the ICC anti-corruption tribunal on spot-fixing charges, has vowed to contest and appeal the ban in the international court of arbitration for sports in Switzerland.
“This is too harsh a decision for charges that I bowled two no-balls deliberately. I was never expecting such a harsh decision. I am in a state of shock but I am going to consult my lawyer and appeal this ban in the international court,” Aamer said from Doha late last night.
“I think this is the worst day of my life and I am just disappointed that because of me it is Pakistan that is facing embarrassment that is why we will contest this ban,” he said.
