"Since we forcefully took up his case last year the ICC had formed a special committee to look into the anomalies in the existing ICC anti-corruption laws and clauses and the good news is they also appear to understand our stance on Aamir's ban," he said.

"The ICC committee will submit its report in June this year recommending amendments in the anti-corruption laws and we are confident these could lead to a one-year reduction in the ban period on Aamir," Sethi said. (Najam Sethi hopeful of bilateral series with India after IPL)
