Pakistan are preparing to meet England in a three-match Test series, their first meeting since three Pakistan players - Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and teenager Mohammad Amir - were jailed for trying to fix Test matches at Lord's in 2010.

Prosecutors of the case in London are adamant that the corruption went beyond the trio.

Four other players for the Pakistan squad were accused of having close and suspicious ties to the jailed agent who arranged the original scam. Now the two teams are set to meet again on Tuesday for a Test match in the neutral territory of Dubai, due to security concerns at home.
