Karachi: Former Pakistan’s tainted skipper Salman Butt, who is undergoing PCB’s rehabilitation program after serving his ban for his involvement in the 2010 spot-fixing scandal, has insisted he will try his best to regain the trust of his fans once again. Offering his apology, the 31-year-old stressed that he still has a good character and deserves a second chance after serving his punishment, PakPassion.net reported. Reflecting on his return, Butt said that he would make sure that he wouldn’t disappoint his fans, adding that he was looking forward to the upcoming year as he would get to play the game he loves.
The disgraced player believes that he could still perform well at any level of the game and that he was waiting for a good opportunity. Fast bowler Mohammad Amir, who was also part of the scandal, was earlier allowed in April by the ICC to take part in domestic cricket, while Butt and Mohammad Asif were asked to complete a rehabilitation programme after the ban against them ended at midnight of September 1. The three players were found guilty of various offences of corrupt behavior relating to the Lords Test between England and Pakistan in August 2010 by the independent Anti-Corruption Tribunal on February 5, 2011
