Mohammad Amir, who pleaded guilty before the trial of his two team mates, was sentenced to six months in a case that prosecutors said had revealed rampant corruption at the heart of international cricket.
The three were part of a gambling-inspired plot to bowl no-balls at pre-arranged times during a test match at Lord’s in London in August 2010.
