Former Pakistan skipper Salman Butt has finally admitted that he was involved in spot-fixing in the 2010 Lords Test and was later banned for 10 years by the ICC along with his teammates Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir who were banned for 7 years and 5 years respectively.

 According to reports, he admitted his involvement in spot-fixing scandal during the meeting with Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Shehryar Khan last night. Central culprit of the spot-fixing scandal, which caused embarrassment for Pakistan throughout the world, admitted that the accusations were correct.

During the meeting, the cricketer admitted that he knew during the 2010 Lords’ Test that Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif were going to bowl planted no-balls. He said that he was ashamed of his act.

PCB officials will now soon send Salman Butt’s confessional statement to ICC’s Anti-Corruption Unit after which ICC will decide about Salman Butt’s future. Amir has completed his ban period and has returned to competitive cricket earlier this year.
