New Inclusion in the Pakistan Cricket, Salman Butt Joins Pakistan’s National Selection Panel

The World Cup ended a few days ago. Pakistan ended their World Cup journey in the group stage. After starting the tournament with two consecutive wins, they lost their flow and started losing consecutive matches. After the World Cup, the Pakistan Cricket Board has gone through a lot of changes. Former Pakistani cricketer Salman Butt has been included in the Pakistan’s national selection panel. That is a big step.

Salman Butt’s Inclusion:

After the World Cup, the Pakistan Cricket Board has gone through a lot of changes. Babar Azam resigned from the captaincy role. Shaheen Shah Afridi became the new white ball captain. PCB also resigned from his post—a lot of changes and improvements done after their World Cup exit. Now a new change has happened in cricket. 

Former Pakistan skipper Salman has been included in the national selection panel ahead of Pakistan’s five-match T20 series against New Zealand. In a statement, PCB said, “The first assignment as consultant members to the chief selector includes the upcoming five-match T20 series against New Zealand, set to commence on 12 January 2024 following the conclusion of the test tour to Australia.” 

Further, they added, “When not engaged in selection duties, the consultant members may be assigned additional tasks such as conducting skills camps.”

Butt’s Career:

Salman Butt was a talented player on the squad. He played 33 tests, 78 ODIs, and 24 T20s. In 2010, during England vs. Pakistan match, Butt was suspended for a spot-fixing allegation. After 5 years of suspension, he came back into international cricket in 2016. From that, his career graph changed. Butt was a good captain. Pakistan won two test matches under his captaincy—one against Australia and the other one against England. 

After coming back from the ban, Butt was never selected for the national side. He played domestic cricket. In the last month, he was called for a commentary assignment. Now the former opener is busy in the National T2o Championship.
