ISLAMABAD, May 20 (APP): Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Friday confirmed that the visa application of pacer Mohammad Amir has been submitted to the United Kingdom (UK) Embassy.

According to the UK visa laws, a foreign individual’s visa application will be denied for up to 10 years if he or she has served a jail sentence of one year to four years within the UK. Amir, Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif were banned after the unfortunate spot-fixing incident that took place in Pakistan’s tour of England in 2010.

He spent six-months in juvenile prison and was banned for five-years from all form of cricket by the International Cricket Council (ICC).
