Match Tied (Royal Challengers Bangalore win one-over eliminator)
Salman Butt once again proves his class and caliber with an exhilarating double-ton against Balochistan in the ongoing Quaid-e-Azam trophy. Playing for Central Punjab, Butt accumulated a massive score of 237 before he was trapped LBW by Yasir Shah. His knock included 35 classical boundaries and constituted 376 deliveries.
The 34-year old’s flourishing records in the domestic structure continues to knock the doors of selectors for the hunt of a spot in the National Team. The top-order batsman was found guilty of spot fixing scandal back in 2010 during the Test series against England. Salman Butt was handed with 7-year ban, which was lifted before the duration ended. Still, he has not been able to make his place in the Pakistan’s squad.
His double-century will now once again force Pakistan’s Chief Selector to look towards him and consider him for the National side. His inclusion in the team might solve Pakistan’s batting problems in the Test format. Salman has played 33 Test matches for Pakistan, in which he has scored 1889 runs at an average of 30.46.
