Salman Butt Replaces Mohammad Hafeez in Lahore Qalandars Squad

Mohammad Hafeez has ruled out of Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2019 for 2-4 weeks after picking up a hand injury during a game against Karachi Kings.

Lahore Qalandars did not announce the replacement straight away but after consultation with the management and the coach, Salman Butt has been announced as Hafeez’s replacement.

Salman Butt has been seeking a comeback ever since he was found guilty of spot-fixing back in 2010.

It is important to mention that Butt has showed good form following his comeback in the domestic cricket.

His National T20 Cup performances were praised heavily and there were rumors that he would even make his way back to the national side. He was the third-highest run getter in 2018’s National T20 Cup whereas ranked 3rd in 2016.

Are you happy with this replacement? Let us know in the comments section below.

  • i think that its a good decision made by the team management. he suffer the consequences of his bad act.

  • It is very unfortunate, Hafeez is out due to injury. It is part of game. Salman’s inclusion should be good omen for Qalanders. Now this is a big big opportunity which he should grab with both hands. It might pave way for his comeback in the national side. Good Luck Salami Butt


  • This man not only betrayed the team but also his country.
    So much so he influenced others to do the same, people like him never change.

      • Bro there is a difference between M.Amir and Salman Butt. M. Amir admitted his mistake in start while Butt and Asif were constantly saying that they were innocent. When their punishment finished then they committed the mistake. For me Butt is more criminal as he was the captain of our national team.

  • I don’t know why PCB has soft corner for such players…
    they should be banned for life.
    We should set some examples for our up coming talent.
    We have hundreds of new and young players who deserve the chance, PCB should invest and consider these young players.

      • Mein support karta hun LQ ko,
        Aur karta rahu ga, jesey hum Pakistan ki national team ko support kartey hein chahey wo jeetein ya harein.

      • Is bandey ki wajah sey mein ProPakistani ki website hi visit karna chhor deni hei bohat irritating hei ye aadmi

  • if Amir nd butt are now back in relevent teams thn why Asif is not considered .. i think that man should get one chance too.. butt was the master mind of all that act now if he is coming bck i think Asif deserves a chance as well..

  • Wow, anyone can be forgiven in this country, the guy who was handed over the captaincy against all the odds, did all he cud to make us feel ashamed of, and people are coming to support his inclusion, this is the reason we are so backwards, we go back to the stone age, we find excuses to keep are beloved ones happy, wow, PCB once again on their knees in front of this dirty fag.. bravo

  • All the prays for Salman Butt good performance….He has served his punishment ….now InshaAllah he will have wonderful time
