England's [ Images ] Test cricketers may be re-interviewed by police as the Crown Prosecution Services prepares its case against the three Pakistan players banned for spot-fixing by the ICC [ Images ] early this month, according to a report.
They could even be asked to appear as witnesses to events on the field, and in particular the three no-balls at the centre of the scandal, during the fourth Test at Lord's in August last year, Daily Mail reported.
England captain Andrew Strauss [ Images ] and other players who faced Pakistan in that Test have already provided witness statements following the allegations against Salman Butt [ Images ], Mohammad Asif [ Images ] and Mohammad Amir.
Butt, Asif and Amir were banned by the International Cricket Council [ Images ] on February 5 for 10, seven and five years after an independent anti-corruption tribunal found them guilty of spot-fixing.

The three players have been summoned by the CPS to appear in a Westminster Magistrates' Court on March 17 to formally face the charges against them.
