Sources told The Sports Encounter here Friday that Salman Butt has challenged former great fast bowler’s eligibility in his second reply to the spot fixing allegations to the International Cricket Council (ICC).
Butt is of the view that the Pakistan trio are facing double standards by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and the ICC as the former players who were fined in the past by a Pakistan tribunal for their involvement in the match fixing scandal are still associated with the national team.

Taking name of Waqar Younis, Salman Butt stated that the former fast bowler was fined by a judicial commission in Pakistan for his involvement in the match-fixing row but he is still working as coach of the national squad.
He went on to say that he along with Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Aamir has been manhandled by the cricket authorities and the standard of penalization should be the same for all the players in the world.
