Shoaib Akhtar, speaking on a talk show, cast match-fixing aspersions on his former Pakistan teammates when he said that he was playing against 21 people -- "11 theirs and 10 ours".
Salman Butt said he was delighted to join the Lahore Qalandars in the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL) as a replacement for Mohammad Hafeez.
Butt has committed to a full season for local giants Mohammedan Sporting Club, a club captained by Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan.
Butt and Kamran also felt that one reason for Pakistani not producing the same quality batting as India was because of the inconsistent nature of pitches used in the first class matches.
Mohammad Asif feels that the PCB needs to have a clear and uniform policy regarding tainted players.
Last year, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Shahryar Khan said there was no restriction or reservations on part of the PCB or the International Cricket Council (ICC) on Butt and Mohammad Asif playing international cricket again.
The PCB chief's remarks came after Mohammad Asif and Salman Butt said they were contemplating writing a letter to the ICC to confirm whether the world body had any reservations on them playing for Pakistan again

Waqar Younis' support for Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif to be treated equally as Mohammad Amir is in contrast to recent statements of Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Shaharyar Khan and T20 captain Shahid Afridi who have said the duo's case differs from Amir and it will not be easy for them to make a comeback.
The International Cricket Council lifted their sanctions on Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif in September last year, making them eligible for national and international matches.
