Former Pakistan captain Salman Butt has called on the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and national selectors to include him in the national team following his superb performance in the Quaid-e-Azam One Day Cup.
Butt, who captained the Water and Power Development Authority, played an instrumental role in leading them to the final as he was the top-scorer in the tournament with 559 runs in 10 matches, which included a century and six fifties, at an average of 79.85.
While the Water and Power Development Authority reached the final of the Quaid-e-Azam One Day Cup, they were unable to win the competition as they lost to Habib Bank Limited by 62 runs.
“By the grace of Allah, I am the top scorer of the Quaid -e-Azam One Day Cup,” Butt, who last represented Pakistan in August 2010, told Cricingif. “I have scored more than 500 runs, with an average and strike rate [of 79.85 and 87.34 respectively].
“It is there for the selectors and the PCB to see and to select me. On the basis of my form and fitness, if they think I am deserving then they should select me.”
