Al Jazeera's Lee Wellings reports on developments at Crown Court in London as three Pakistan cricketers await sentencing in a corruption trial.

Former captain Salman Butt and fast bowler Mohammad Asif were found guilty on both counts of conspiracy to obtain and accept corrupt payments, and conspiracy to cheat at gambling, on Tuesday.

A third, 19-year-old bowler Mohammad Amir, had pleaded guilty on both counts. All three are already banned from cricket and could face jail.

Court has now been adjourned, with sentencing set for Thursday.
