Salman Butt and Mohammad Amir were his other team mates who were found guilty. Amir pleaded guilty and was released in February after serving half of a six month sentence, while Asif and Butt denied the charges against them in court.
His team mate, Salman Butt is currently serving a 30-month jail sentence and the agent Mazhar Majeed who was accused of setting up the deal that was uncovered by a newspaper sting operation, was imprisoned for 32 months.
