Former Pakistan captain Salman Butt believes that he is capable of excelling in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) if he is given the chance to play every game.
Salman, who was banned for five years for his involvement in a spot-fixing scandal in 2010, has been one of the most consistent performers on the domestic circuit and represented the Lahore Qalandars in two matches in this year’s PSL.
Despite scoring 17 and five against the Multan Sultans and Quetta Gladiators respectively, Salman pointed out that people shouldn’t judge and criticise him based on his performance in two games.
He boldly claimed that he would steal the spotlight if he were in the playing XI for every match in the tournament.
“People don’t analyse the complete context of my PSL performance,” he told cricketpakistan.com.pk. “I just got two matches in between. It is the kind of league where players score in only two or three matches. Give me a whole season and I will perform in it.”
