Salman Butt in new role

His rise in Pakistan cricket was like a comet. Also matched. Forget it yourself. Salman Butt’s life became chaotic after he was involved in a spot-fixing scandal in 2010.

He returned to cricket after serving a five-year ban. But he did not get the same appreciation as before. Getting a call to the national team is the next thing. Once considered the successor to Pakistan’s legendary opener Saeed Anwar, Butt is now in the twilight of his career.

But 38-year-old Salman Butt is not stopping. Rather, his career is now taking a new turn. He can be seen on the field as a match referee after the end of the cricketer’s chapter.

Forty-six cricketers, including Salman Butt, have taken part in online level-1 courses for umpires and match officials. The course started on Monday under the overall supervision of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

The PCB is trying to add former Pakistan cricketers to the new workplace. Former Pakistan fast bowler Abdul Rauf and former all-rounder Bilal Asif are among the familiar faces of the program.
