Mohammad Asif & Salman Butt set for domestic cricket return


KARACHI: Former Pakistan captain Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif will be allowed to return to Pakistan’s domestic cricket in January, three months after their spot-fixing bans ended, officials announced on Saturday.


“I think my fortunes will change and I will do my best to force my way into the national team,” said Asif, who will turn 33 later this month.

At the time of his ban, Asif was regarded as the best new ball bowler having taken 106 Tests and 46 one-day wickets in a career besotted by failed dope tests and injuries. – AFP
