Former Pakistan captain Salman Butt, in a recent interview, has lashed out at the discriminatory treatment meted out to him by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). Butt was of the opinion that Mohammad Amir had been unfairly fast-tracked into the national side after the expiry of his ban while he is still awaiting a recall despite churning out runs in the domestic circuit.
“This can only be explained by the previous Chairman of the PCB, Shahryar Khan or Najam Sethi. Why can one player play and the other can’t? What was special in one and what did the other not have? He hasn’t even played a complete season. I have participated in all seasons completely,” Butt said.
Butt was also critical of the negative feedback he has received for his Pakistan Super League (PSL) performances with the Lahore Qalandars.
“People don’t analyze the complete context of my PSL performance. I just got two matches in between. It is the kind of league where players score in only two or three matches. Give me a whole season and I will perform in it,” he added.
