    Aamir is blatantly lying here, what a rubbish interview so far.

    He is claiming he just gave his account details to some guy he barely knew

    Key points so far:

    I became good friends with Butt because we both used to play for National bank and he treated me like a brother.

    Salman Butt introduced me to Mazhar Majeed, seemed a well educated man.

    Salman asked me as a joke first # AboutFixing

    I didn't know about bowling no balls at the Oval game.

    OMG, LOL!

    What a pack of lies! He says Majeed walked into his room after the now balls where bowled and Majeed gave him the money just to "buy some stuff for himself".

    The worst thing is that he looks so smug and is acting like he is pulling the wool over everyones eyes.

    Poor interviewing from Atherton here, he is just accepting everything Aamer has said so far but the language barrier is probably affecting him.

    Everyone thinks I did it for money, but I did not - I got enough money from cricket itself.

    Aamer is claiming he didnt do it for money, he didnt need the money.

    He says he was trapped by Mazhar Majeed telling him that Ali taking his bank account details and sending him texts was being investigated by the ICC.

    He was blackmailed he claims, I dont believe it

    Aamer says in the 1.5 years he's played with Pakistan team he's never seen any evidence of underperforming or match fixing.

    He says all the players want to play their best and win for the team.

    He says when he got famous he wasn't even giving time to his family, he was living the high life and basking in the fame.

    He says it blurs your moral compass and you have trouble understanding who is a friend and who is an enemy

    He says he learned his lesson, he learnt it late but he learnt it.

    He says he wants to thank his parents, he says they loved me anyway but when I was in distress their love for me increased even more.

    He says he is sorry to his fans and wants to tell the upcoming youngsters, if anyone says something wrong to you then tell your elders. The people who trick you into becoming a fixer they will not force you to do it. They will do it by becoming your friends and then getting you stuck

    He says he is not just apologising to Pakistan fans but all cricket fans in the entire world, he is sorry for letting them all down.

    He understands why they would be angry and upset with him. He says all I can do is say sorry and hope they can forgive him.

    He lied at the start about what happened, I dont believe the story about being blackmailed by Mazhar over ALi's texts. Nor do I believe what he said about innocently accepting £1500 from Mazhar after bowling the no ball.

    However when he gave a warning to other young cricketers at the end the truth came out. He accidentally told us the real story.

    He said that certain people get close to you when you get famous, those people befriend you and treat you to luxuries. You get impressed by them because they dress well, speak well and appear to be well edicated too. They seem like they have your best interests in heart and then before you know it you are in too deep.

    I think that's what happened to Aamer and it's a shame he didn't just say that instead of the silly made up story that made him look worse and like a liar.

    Even before this interview, i said he was a liar and should be banned for ever.

    in my views anyone who sell his country should be hanged with immediate effects irrespective of his age.

    and this interview is a blessing in disguise for some fans who thought that aamir was innocent and blah blah.

    exactly, the only way he could saved some embarrassment and won few fans was if he could have revealed some inside info.. instead lied and put all blame on butt.

    and people think he is 19 and was innocent. what a shame.

    To summarise this interview this is what happened...

    * He and Butt both played for National Bank
    * When he joined the team, Butt was the friendliest senior and took him under his wing
    * Butt introduced him to Mazhar Majeed
    * Aamer saw them both as well-educated and respectable guys
    * He met a guy called Ali in Dubai before the NZ tour
    * Ali said he was friends with Butt and asked for Aamer's number in Paksitan
    * Aamer gave the number, went to NZ and when he came back to Pakistan Ali met him a few times
    * He said Butt twice mentioned fixing to him
    * The first time Butt pretended he was joking and Aamer said it's wrong
    * The 2nd time Butt was serious and Aamer said no I wont do that it's haram
    * During the England series Ali met him in UK and asked for his UK number
    * Ali (whom Aamer barely knew) asked Aamer for his bank account details
    * Aamer said he didnt ask why Ali wanted them and just gave Ali the bank details
    * He said he did that because Ali knew Butt
    * He said he then sent Ali a few texts asking why he needed his account details and Ali sent him lots of texts
    * The next day Butt said Mazhar was waiting for Aamer in a car in a car park round the corner
    * Butt was in the back seat and Aamer and Mazhar in the front
    * Mazhar told Aamer that the ICC had his texts with Ali and were coming after him
    * Mazhar toild him if he would bowl two no balls then Mazhar would save him
    * Aamer said I didnt think to say no and Butt was agreeing
    * Aamer then bowled the two no balls
    * When Butt was talking to Aamer before the big no ball, he said 'do u remember?'
    * Aamer didnt know Asif was bowling no balls as well
    * After bowling the huge no ball, Waqar came looking for him
    * Waqar was angry and shouted at Aamer saying why did you do that
    * Aamer had no answer and was lost for words, he felt too ashamed
    * Butt jumped in and said to Waqar that Butt was telling him to get forward and bowl bouncers
    * When the story broke Aamer was shocked it was about the no balls and not the texts to Ali
    * He texted Ali to tell him to delete all the texts
    * After the story broke he didnt know where to look with the rest of the team
    * He only lied initially because he didn't know who to trust
    * This is because the guys he'd trusted (Mazhar and Butt) had betrayed him

    What a pack of lies!!

    All he had to do was say

    'I was young and impressionable, these guys got me involved in something I shouldnt have done. I wanted to make some quick money. I was stupid to try that. I regret it and wish it had never happened.'

    This was the best bit of the interview, Waqar shouting at Aamer wanting to know why he bowled such a huge no ball. At least Waqar is clean!!
