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.
