LAHORE (92 News) – Former Pakistan Cricket team captain Salman Butt is likely to be included in national team’s Test squad as captain Misbahul Haq indicated the return of former captain, however, UK Home Office could stop him following his involvement in the spot-fixing controversy at Lord's in 2010.
Salman Butt, who was then Pakistan captain, was jailed for 30 months for his part in the 2010 spot-fixing scandal that centered on delivering no-balls to order.
Misbah said that the Pakistan Cup, a new tournament which begins this week, is another chance for Butt to impress. "We have a settled line up between Nos 3 and 7 but the opening slot is not as consistent as the rest of the order. There are issues and we are looking at a couple more options including Shan Masood and Salman Butt," Misbah said.
Butt's five-year ban from cricket was completed earlier this year and he has returned to action in the Pakistan domestic set-up. Butt, now 31, was the second-leading run-scorer in the National One-Day Cup with 536 runs at 107.20 and Waqar Younis, who recently resigned as coach, had been keen for him to be included the World T20 squad.
