Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Asif is hopeful the Court of Arbitration for Sport will overturn his ban for spot-fixing in one of the biggest cricket scandals in years, he said on Thursday.
"Today was quite busy," Asif told AFP after the end of a day-long hearing behind closed doors at the CAS's Swiss headquarters. "They will give us their decision in the next three weeks."
He added: "Hopefully I am going to win this case. I'd like to play cricket again."
On Friday, Pakistan captain Salman Butt is due to attend a CAS appeal hearing on his own ban.
Butt, Asif and fellow fast bowler Mohammad Aamer were banned by the International Cricket Council (ICC) for contriving to bowl deliberate no-balls during the Lord's Test between Pakistan and England in August 2010.
