Jailed Pakistani cricketers Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Aamer could be deported from Britain once they finish their terms

Jailed Pakistani cricketers Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Aamer could be deported from Britain once they finish their terms.

The trio were found guilty of spot- fixing during the Lord's Test between England and Pakistan last August.

The Daily Telegraph reported that Home Office rules state that overseas prisoners serving jail terms of a year or more face deportation at the end of their sentences.

"The Border Agency will consider the removal of foreign prisoners serving 12-month sentences or more but each case is considered on its merits," a Home Office spokesman said.
