Salman Butt, the former captain of Pakistan’s cricket team, underwent a challenging period following his removal from the selection team of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). Initially appointed as a consultant, Butt had to exit prematurely due to public criticism. This occurred during the involvement of Caretaker Prime Minister Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar, who also served as the PCB’s Patron-in-Chief.
The chief selector, Wahab Riaz, shared that they had considered keeping Salman Butt as a consultant but changed their minds after thinking it through. Riaz said that public opinion played a big role in this change. So, Butt’s chance to be a consultant with the selection team ended before it even started.
During this time, the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) offered Salman Butt a job as a Batting Consultant for their upcoming series against India. This was a new opportunity for Butt after the difficulties he faced in Pakistan.
In summary, Salman Butt went from being a consultant for the PCB to leaving due to public criticism and political involvement. But the offer from the ACB suggested a chance for him to make a comeback with a different cricket team.
