Aamir hopes to come out clean in Doha hearing

LAHORE – Suspended paceman Aamir has reiterated
that he has not done anything wrong, adding that he has full faith in the ICC. He hoped to come out clean after the hearing before the ICC panel in Doha.
“I have always played Test matches, but
the upcoming hearing in Doha would not
only be the longest but also the toughest
test of my career. I am hopeful that like the
on-field matches, I would be able to
perform well in this test (hearing) too”,
said Aamir before leaving for Doha.
Pakistan cricketers Salman Butt, Amir and Asif reached Doha to appear in a hearing set up by the International Cricket Council for inquiry into spot fixing charges. “I want a decision from the ICC on my suspension case as soon as possible. My lawyer (Shahid Karim) has prepared a strong case and I am hoping for the best”, the left-arm pacer added.
Michael Beloff will chair the panel in Doha while the other tribunal members are Justice Albie Sachs from South Africa and Sharad Rao from Kenya. The 18-year old fast bowler also appealed the nation to pray for him as well as Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif.
Aamir, who hit the headlines in the 2009 World T20 Cup, has captured 51 wickets in just 14 Test matches, with three five-wicket hauls. Aamir said his priority was to get his name cleared from the allegations. “My lawyer has prepared the case extensively and I hope that I will be cleared,” said Aamir. “This is the toughest period of my life but I am confident that it will be over and I will be playing for Pakistan soon,” said Aamir.
The suspended players face punishments ranging from a five-year suspension to life bans if charges are proved.
