Dubai: ICC chief executive David Richardson Tuesday urged disgraced Pakistan cricketers Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif to accept their guilt and share information on fixing to start their rehabilitation.

Former captain Butt, along with fast bowlers Asif and Mohammad Aamer, was banned by the International Cricket Council in 2011 after being found guilty of deliberately contriving no-balls in return for money in the Lord's Test in England the previous year.

Butt received a 10-year ban, with five years suspended, and Asif was barred for seven years, with two suspended. Aamer was banned for five years -- the minimum punishment in the ICC code.
