Butt to give expert opinion on World Cup
Pakistan banned Test Captain Salman Butt is likely to give expert opinion on the World Cup on a private Television channel.
Sources were quoted as saying that Butt had entered into an agreement with a private TV channel for giving comments on the World Cup.
“He is being paid an undisclosed amount for the entire World Cup, said to be around half a million rupees,” blogs.bettor.com quoted a source as saying.
“Butt will be giving expert opinions on some
matches of the World Cup particularly those involving Pakistan in the tournament,” the source added.
The source said that Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) was not aware of this development yet and might be in a shock since they are also waiting for the detailed judgment of the ICC tribunal, which they should get ‘unofficially’ this week.
“It remains to be seen how the International Cricket Council (ICC) will react to having a banned player work as a cricket expert during the World Cup as the ban does cover a lot of areas,” the source concluded.
