Former captain, Rashid Latif, feels that the verdict handed out to the Pakistani trio, will not make much difference as far as cricket in the country is concerned.
"We desperately need to save our future generations after what happened to Butt, Asif and Aamer," former Pakistan captain Rashid Latif, who blew the whistle on match-fixing in 1995, told AFP.
Latif said huge money needed to be pumped into domestic cricket.
"There is frustration among the local players who cannot buy a car or a house from their earnings and until we pump millions of rupees into our domestic cricket we cannot stop players from this malpractice," said Latif.
"Nothing was done about it. I don't think this verdict will make a difference to Pakistan or international cricket," added Latif.
