Former fast bowler Mohammad Asif has, for the first time, met with the Pakistan Cricket Board's vigilance and anti-corruption department.

Former fast bowler Mohammad Asif has, for the first time, met with the Pakistan Cricket Board's vigilance and anti-corruption department.

Last week saw Asif publicly confess, almost three years since he was handed a lengthy ban for his part in spot-fixing during 2010's Test against England.

"I had my first session and will do more," Asif told reporters in Lahore after a two-and-half-hour meeting.

"Although it's a beginning, I am following the ICC directives for rehabilitation and will work further with the PCB. I have already apologised in public and had given a formal written apology too."

The 30-year-old Asif, alongside fellow seamer Mohammad Amir and ex-captain Salman Butt, were banned for deliberately bowling no-balls during the fourth Test at Lord's in August 2010.

His recent apology, however, is not expected to have any immediate implications – until Asif undergoes rehabilitation and presents the entire truth to the ACSU and PCB

"He met with the PCB chairman and the vigilance and anti-corruption unit," a PCB spokesman told <i>ESPNcricinfo</i>.

"It was a basic meeting after he voluntarily made a public apology and was here to share information ahead of his rehabilitation programme." .
