Mohammad Amir has been granted permission to appeal against his six-month custodial sentence for his part in spot-fixing for Pakistan against England in 2010.

Amir was sentenced to six months imprisonment in Feltham Young Offenders Institute and has been given permission to appeal against the length of his sentence.

Amir was refused bail but his appeal should be heard before 29th November.

Salman Butt, who was jailed for 30 months, has filed an appeal against his sentence and Mohammad Asif, the third player who was given a custodial sentence - of one year - is also expected to appeal.
