Amir to be dropped from awards list - Mr.Bhat - 09-04-2010

Suspended Pakistan paceman Mohammad Amir will be removed from the list of nominees for the ICC Emerging Player of the Year award.

The 18-year-old, who was one of the 16 cricketers nominated for the ICC award, was favourite to bag the honour.

But Amir, along with Pakistan captain Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif, was provisionally suspended by the game's world governing body in the wake of a spot-fixing scandal.

“In accordance with the provisions of the code, this means they are immediately barred from participating in all cricket and related activities until the case has been concluded,” ICC had said in a statement.

An ICC official told Cricinfo website that “Amir's removal from the list could be confirmed by “reading between the lines.”
