Karachi: The Pakistan Cricket Board is at bubbleheads with Salman Butt as the banned captain is not accepting the blame for encouraging his former teammates Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif to take part in the Lord’s spot fixing scandal in 2010.

One of the official said that Salman Butt met with PCB officials and had requested that we take up his case for some relaxation from the ICC before his ban ends as was done in Mohammad Amir’s case.

The official also added that Salman butt has so far not responded to a letter sent by PCB to him on 9th Feb in which they have told him clearly that he needs to be more honest and forthright if he seeks any hope of playing cricket again.

The official said that the problem with Butt even when he admitted to violate the ICC anti-corruption code was that he was not at all willing to accept his role in indulging Asif and Amir in spot-fixing during the fourth Test against England at Lords in August 2010.

Amir and Asif were banned for minimum of five-year terms by the ICC’s anti-corruption tribunal in Feb 2011 for spot-fixing and they also served varying jail terms in the United Kingdom. Later Amir got some relaxation as he confessed and apologised for his actions and also cooperated with the ICC.
