Once considered the future captain of Pakistan, Salman Butt now finds himself in a pool of criticism as he shattered the confidence of all the Pakistanis with his heinous crime. After serving his punishment, the top-order batsman recorded emphatic displays in the domestic cricket.
Now, the 34-year old cricketer is all set to lead the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) side in the upcoming Pakistan Cup. While the dexterous batsman is relishing the opportunity to display his prowess, former cricketers have expressed their disapproval on having a tainted figure leading a domestic team.
Sarfaraz Nawaz, former Pakistan cricketer and one of the pioneers of the reverse swing, has always been against the comeback of the Lahore born cricketer and seeing him captaining a side in the domestic ODI Cup has fumed him.
Former Northamptonshire pacer lambasted the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB)’s policy of installing Salman Butt as the leader of the KPK. The 70-year old believes that there is no wisdom behind such decisions as the governing body of the cricket in Pakistan is setting a wrong precedent by honoring those players who went on to tarnish the image of the country.
