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.
