Crown Prosecution Service: Cricketers 'brought shame' on game
Pakistan cricketers Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif have been found guilty for their part in a "spot-fixing" scam after a trial at Southwark Crown Court.
Former captain Butt, 27, and fast bowler Asif, 28, were both found guilty of conspiracy to cheat and conspiracy to accept corrupt payments.
Another bowler, Mohammad Amir, admitted the charges prior to the trial.
Outside the court, Sally Walsh of the Crown Prosecution Service said they had ''brought shame on the cricketing world''.
