Mohammad Amir blames Salman Butt for spot-fixing saga

Former Pakistan bowler Mohammad Amir has blamed ex-captain Salman Butt for the spot-fixing scandal that led to both being jailed.

Amir was released in February having served half of his six-month sentence.

Butt, bowler Mohammad Asif and agent Mazhar Majeed remain in prison for plotting no-balls in England in 2010.

Amir told Mike Atherton: "I am so angry with Salman. He took advantage of our friendship. He should have helped me instead of involving me in all this."
