Suspended Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Asif has apologized publicly for his involvement in a 2010 spot-fixing scandal and pledged to cooperate with the International Cricket Council's anti-corruption unit.
In 2011, Asif was banned for seven years ' two of them suspended ' for bowling predetermined no-balls during the Lord's test against England. Teammates Salman Butt and Mohammad Amir were also banned for a minimum period of five years for similar offences.
Asif told reporters on Wednesday: 'I apologize for my actions that have brought disrespect to my beloved country.'
Asif said he will cooperate with the ICC, its Anti-Corruption and Security Unit and the Pakistan Cricket Board 'in fighting corruption in the game.'
