LAHORE: Pakistan fast bowler Muhammad Asif admitted to spot fixing on Thursday, Express News reported.

Asif met officials from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and PCB CEO Sauban Ahmed on Thursday morning and admitted that he had made mistakes in the past.

Asif said that he was willing to cooperate with the International Cricket Council (ICC) and PCB completely. He said that he was ashamed for what he had done and apologised to the entire nation.

Pakistan batsman Salman Butt had also confessed to have been involved in spot fixing.

After Asif, all three Pakistani cricketers alleged to be part of a spot fixing charge by the ICC have confessed to have done so.

The five year ban on Salman Butt and the two year ban on Muhammad Asif will still hold, Express News correspondent Yousuf Anjum reported.

Muhammad Asif, Salman Butt and young pacer Mohammad Amir were banned in early 2011 by the ICC's anti-corruption tribunal for spot-fixing in a 2010 test match against England.

PCB and ICC now should proceed to impose life ban on Mohammed Asif after confession and the trio should be arrested immediately and put them on trial for cheating and for letting down the nation.
