Dubai: The International Cricket Council on Wednesday welcomed the decision of the Court of Arbitration for Sport to dismiss the appeals by disgraced Pakistani players Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif against the bans imposed on them in 2011 by the ICC on spot-fixing charges.

ICC Chief Executive David Richardson said the CAS decision "vindicated" the world body's bans on the two disgraced Pakistani players.

"The ICC notes and welcomes the decisions of the CAS as they vindicate and confirm the processes and procedures followed by the ICC over the past couple of years in respect of this important, sensitive and high-profile matter," Richardson said in an ICC statement.
