Balls Profile: Salman Butt

December 21, 2021

Butt’s name is unfortunate, and almost makes him sound like a crank call to Moe Szyslak. In real terms he brings a bit of middle class swagger to the Pakistan team. Against most teams he is a walking wicket. Against Australia he is a cricketer. Is a tremendous player square of the wicket, but generally ignores all other parts of the ground. Has a terrible test record but a lovely disposition, if he could keep the disposition and add test runs he could be a fine likable test cricketer with a stupid name.
