Former Pakistan captain Salman Butt, after returning from his ban imposed because of his involvement in a spot-fixing scandal, recorded a series of impressive performances. Scoring a plethora of runs across all the three formats of the game, Salman made a strong case of a return to donning the national colors.
However, the Pakistani selection committee remains skeptical about picking the tainted cricketer as the authorities are open to test other players like Imam-ul-Haq, Abid Ali and Shan Masood ahead of Salman Butt.
This hasn’t gone down well with the 35-year old cricketer who has more than 330 runs in the ongoing edition of the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy with an average over 80.
“Since my return to domestic cricket, I am performing well. However, selectors aren’t impressed. I don’t know the criteria for making a comeback into the national team. However, it is my duty to keep performing,” said Salman Butt.
Recently, the dexterous cricketer spoke about his continuous absence which perplexed him. The Lahore born is of the view that he has done enough in the domestic circuit, but still remains away from the national framework.
