Butt deserves a recall- Waqar Younis

Butt deserves a recall- Waqar Younis

Published Date: 20 Dec 2016 | Update : 20 Dec 2016
Former Pakistan paceman and coach Waqar Younis thinks that Salman Butt should be considered for national team since he is in a good form. Waqar was Pakistan’s coach during the Lord’s Test in 2010, when Butt was found guilty for being related with spot fixing with Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif. All three of them served bans then, but only Amir returned to the national team since. Waqar said he was in favour of Butt returning based on his recent domestic form. Butt scored two centuries in the final of the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy that helped his team win their maiden title. “He was playing really well and also he has served his sentence and punishment and I feel personally that everyone deserves a go,” Waqar said to BT Sport. “People are going to have different views. He is a good player, he is playing really well,” he added. Meanwhile Butt was also hopeful to return in international arena. Speaking to ESPNcricinfo during the final of Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, Butt said, “I am knocking very hard on selectors’ doors,” Butt had said after the second day’s play. “I don’t want to break [down] but I want to keep myself fit and keep my form alive. With my wisdom, I am trying my best with the best of my intention.”
