New Delhi:

Pakistan is clearly speaking in two voices on the players at the centre of the match fixing scandal. While its UK envoy Wajid Shamsul Hasan insisted the three cricketers - Mohammad Amir. Mohammad Asif and Salman Butt - were innocent and accused the ICC of conspiracy, its ambassador to the United Nations Abdullah Hussain Haroon slammed the players as rash youngsters wanting to make a quick buck.

"There should be an immediate due process of law and who ever is found guilty should be appropriately punished. We can't have national icons jeopardising the standing of the nation because of rash and brash youngsters who want to make money quickly," Abdullah Hussain Haroon said.
