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: '€œI 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 '€œin fighting corruption in the game.'€
