Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq says the 2010 spot-fixing scandal is no longer on his players' minds.

Misbah-ul-Haq said his team is focussed on its upcoming three-test series against top-ranked England in the United Arab Emirates.

Fast bowlers Mohammad Asif, Mohammad Amir and ex-captain Salman Butt were jailed in England last year for conspiring and cheating during Lord s test against England.

Misbah believes Pakistan has overcome the loss of the players to the spot-fixing scam by winning its last three test series.

Misbah said Saturday, "already the team has proved a s quite clear now that nobody has kept that scandal in his mind and everyone is just focussing on his cricket and will do the same in this series."

Pakistani team will leave for Dubai on Monday.
