Karachi: Apr 24, 2013

In a bid to make a comeback, tainted former captain Salman Butt has asked the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to put him through a rehabilitation programme under the International Cricket Council’s anti-corruption law.

Butt had met the PCB officials to submit documents related to his ban and informed them he was available for any rehabilitation programme.

“I have told them I am willing to attend any sort of programme or course which allows me to complete my ban period in two-and-a-half year’s time successfully and allows me to make a comeback to cricket,” Butt said from Lahore.

Butt, along with pacers Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Aamer, was first banned by the anti-corruption tribunal of the ICC in February, 2011 after they were first suspended in September, 2010 on the tour to England by the ICC for their involvement in spot-fixing in the fourth Test played at Lords.

A PCB official said that they had received an application from Butt confirming he was ready to attend any rehabilitation programme that the board wanted him to undergo.

Butt met with PCB officials in Lahore, few days after the International Court of Arbitration (CAS) rejected his appeal against the five year ban imposed on him by the ICC anti-corruption tribunal.

Butt has already expressed his keenness to make a comeback to cricket, and PCB Chairman Zaka Ashraf has also said that once they complete their bans Butt, Asif and Amir would be allowed to play domestic cricket.

Sources close to Asif also said that he was consulting with his lawyers about making himself available for rehabilitation after his appeal was also rejected by the CAS.
