Pakistan's tainted cricketers admit Majeed paid money

Three Pakistani cricketers, captain Salman Butt and pacers Muhammad Asif and Muhammad Aamir, under the scanner for spot-fixing, have reportedly admitted before the Scotland Yard inquiry that the British currency recovered from their hotel rooms was given to them by bookie Mazhar Majeed.

However, the players have maintained that the money was given to them on account of sponsorship contracts that they had signed with different commercial organisations. The players also stated that Majeed was working as their agent to secure sponsorship deals and they did not know that he was a book-maker.
