New Delhi: Mohammad Aamir wouldn’t have hoped for anything better, he got the support from one of the most respected cricketer in the world. Former Indian captain Rahul Dravid has come out in support of the banned Pakistani fast bowler.
Dravid said that when Aamir is done serving his ban he should be allowed to play cricket once again as he is one of the brightest talent going around in world cricket, reported The Hindu.
Mohammad Aamir has been banned for five years for his involvement in the spot-fixing.
Aamir, who is now in Pakistan rebuilding his life, revealed that both Majeed and Butt forced him into spot-fixing by falsely claiming that he was already being investigated by the International Cricket Council (ICC) for fixing.
Aamir has confessed earlier that he was very disappointed with himself after bowling the no-balls at Lord's.
"I was cursing myself. I wondered what was happening. I knew that it was cheating cricket; that it was out of order, and that it shouldn't happen. It was a really horrible feeling. Then I thought on the other hand that they are being kind to me and helping me. I thought that they are saving me and if I don't do it, it might become a problem for me. That's what I was thinking at the time. Then I did it," he said.
