“Mohammad Amir has been warned and has been provided with  further clarification as to the terms of his suspension,”   an ICC spokesman said. 

The 19-year-old played for Surrey Cricket League Divi-sion  One team Addington, prompting the ICC to launch an inquiry.   

Amir was banned for a minimum of five years along with team  mates Mohammad Asif and Salman Butt by an ICC tribunal in  February for bowling deliberate no balls during a test match in  England last year.    

The case is currently going through the criminal courts.
