Pakistan cricketers' trial: 'Agent asked player to cheat'
Pakistan's former Test cricket captain Salman Butt has admitted his agent asked him to fix matches but said he ignored his requests.
Mr Butt said his agent, Mazhar Majeed, 36, had asked him to intentionally lose wickets at last year's Twenty20 World Cup and to score no runs in an over during the Test against England.
The cricketer told Southwark Crown Court he had rejected the agent's suggestions.
Mr Butt, 27, denies match fixing. James Pearce reports.
