Butt’s family criticize ICC for delaying verdict

The family of former test skipper of Pakistan cricket team Salman Butt is criticizing the independent tribunal of International Cricket Council (ICC) for deferring the verdict of tainted Pakistani trio for one month
 Salman Butt’s father Zulfiqar Ali Butt was very annoyed with the decision of ICC and said “I failed to understand why the ICC is lingering this case. If my son is guilty, punish him now or leave him. Why the verdict is being deferred to next month. The other two players, Aamir and Asif have been acquitted of all charges relating to The Oval Test. However, one charge still stood, against my son who was captain at the time”.
“What investigation for this Oval Test is not known to us, but we understand Salman scored two or three runs in one of the overs which according to the allegations was supposed to be the maiden,” Zulfiqar Ali Butt added.

Pakistan won the Oval test by four wickets under the captaincy of Salman Butt where he scored 17 and 48 runs and was dismissed by Swann in both innings. This is the first defeat of England against Pakistan at home soil after almost 10 years. Mohammad Amir was declared Man of the Match for his outstanding bowling performance.
Salman Butt made his test debut against Bangladesh in September 2003 while he played his firstone day international against West Indies on September 2004. Salman Butt became captain of Pakistan test team in July 2010 when Shahid Afridi stepped down after losing the first test againstAustralia in Headingly.
