The 18 year old Pakistani cricketer Mohammad Aamer and his pace bowling partner Mohammad Asif, the heros of Pakistan's third test win over England only a week ago, have been implicated in a major betting scandal.

The pair were among several Pakistan players interviewed by police following the arrest of a Pakistani players agent at the centre of what's described as "spot fixing" during the fourth and final test against England at Lord's, which Pakistan lost by a record innings and 225 runs.
