Mohammad Amir released from jail after three months
Mohammad Amir, the Pakistan fast bowler, has been released from Portland Young Offenders Institution in Dorset after serving half of his six-month sentence for a spot-fixing scam.
Amir is expected to spend the next few weeks in London before returning to his native Pakistan. He will meet his lawyers to draw up an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport against the five-year ban imposed on him by the International Cricket Council.
Amir was sentenced along with two Pakistan team-mates, Salman Butt and Mohamnmad Asif, after a plot to bowl deliberate no-balls in a Test against England in 2010.
He lost an appeal against the sentence in November in the Court of Appeal in London.
