KARACHI: Pakistan's Mohammad Aamer will return to Pakistan on February 26 after getting his passport from the British government, Aamer's brother Saleem confirmed.

Aamer, who was convicted of spot-fixing and given a sentence of six months, also faces a ban of five years on playing cricket from the International Cricket Council (ICC).

The former fast bowler will be appealing his ICC ban with assistance from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

Two other Pakistani cricketers, Mohammad Asif and Salman Butt were also convicted of spot-fixing last year and are still serving their jail terms.
