After Amir, Salman spotted playing club cricket


LAHORE – After Mohammad Aamer, another suspended Pakistan cricketer Salman Butt has allegedly flouted International Cricket Council’s directives by featuring in a club match in Lahore. The former captain took part in a club game at his home ground in Model Town even though the ICC has in clear terms told the suspended players and the Pakistan Cricket Board that they cannot take part in any cricket activity that come under the umbrella of the PCB or its affiliated units.
According to reports, Lahore City Cricket Association officials were also present when Butt, a Test opener, took part in the match. However, a PCB spokesman has denied the report and claimed that Butt never appeared in any club game. Last week, Mohammad Aamer featured in a club match in Rawalpindi.
The ICC demanded answers from the PCB on the issue.
Butt, Aamer and fellow Pakistan player Mohammad Asif were provisionally suspended by the ICC last September over allegations of spot-fixing during Pakistan’s tour of England.
