“I met with the anti-corruption and vigilance officers of the board today and assured them of my full cooperation in any rehabilitation program they want me to attend to get over the spot-fixing episode,” Salman Butt said.

Salman Butt, along with Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir, was banned by the anti-corruption tribunal of the ICC in early 2011 for their role in the spot-fixing scandal that erupted during Pakistan’s tour to England in the 4th Test at Lord’s in 2010.

Salman Butt, who was captain at that time, was given a 10-year ban by the ICC tribunal but with 5 of them suspended sentence, while Asif got 7 years (2 of them suspended) and Amir 5 years.
