Salman Butt thanks PCB for his second-innings of career



Pakistan’s banned cricketer Salman Butt said on Thursday that he is very thankful to Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for giving him a chance to start second-innings of his career.

While talking to the media, Pakistan’s opening left-handed batsman Salman said that he welcomes the decision of the International Cricket Council (ICC) for allowing him to play the game after serving a five year-ban which is ending on 1st September.

Salman further said that he is very thankful to PCB, as the board helped him a lot to get back on the field. He also said that he’s just due with one more lecture and whenever the PCB will call me I’m ready to attend it.

He concluded while saying that I pray that no one should ever go through this time, the time that I have faced. He also said that the youngsters should learn from our mistakes.

Salman was involved in a spot-fixing incident, back in August 2010 while playing a Test against England. At that time Salman was the skipper of Pakistan and with him Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif were also involved in the incident.
