The International Cricket Council have upheld the provisional suspensions of Pakistan pair Salman Butt and Mohammad Amir after dismissing their appeals at a hearing in Doha.

Test captain Butt and seamer Amir were suspended by the ICC along with Mohammad Asif pending the results of an investigation into spot-fixing allegations.

The claims against the trio - initially raised by a Sunday newspaper on Pakistan's summer tour of England - concerned the alleged bowling of no balls to order under the direction of Butt.

Asif had initially joined his team-mates in confirming his intention to appeal against his suspension but withdrew from the process earlier this month.
