Former England captain Michael Vaughan slammed ex-Pakistan skipper Salman Butt over the comments he made about him.
Vaughan had been comparing New Zealand leader Kane Williamson to his India counterpart Virat Kohli, and said that Williamson would be the greatest player in the world if he was Indian.
Salman was less than impressed with Vaughan’s remarks, calling it “irrelevant” and failing to understand the need to compare the two world-class batsmen.
In response, Vaughan blasted Salman, saying he wished the former Pakistan captain “had such a clear thought of mind back in 2010 when he was match-fixing”.
Salman was banned for five years and served time in prison for his involvement in the fixing scandal, which also involved the pace duo of Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir.
No idea what the headline is … but I seen what Salman has said about me … that’s fine and he is allowed his opinion but I wished he had such a clear thought of mind back in 2010 when he was Match fixing !!! https://t.co/EkDWuH7Vi4
