LAHORE - Former Pakistan captain Salman Butt has said he is determined to resume playing professional cricket despite spot-fixing allegations that are threatening to end his career. Despite of struggling to find his feet at the pitch of accusations of spot-fixing by the International Cricket Council (ICC) with its chief hurling tough bouncers, former Pakistan test skipper, Salman Butt, is not willing to give up. Butt and pacemen Mohammad Asif and Mohammed Aamer were all provisionally suspended by the International Cricket Council (ICC) following allegations theyd all conspired in the bowling of deliberate no-balls as part of a betting scam during the fourth Test against England at Lords in August. The three men, who all deny the allegations against them, face a hearing in Doha next month that is set to determine their future in the game. Butt, in an excerpt of an interview with Sky Sports News due to be broadcast in full later Monday, said he hoped suggestions he might never play top-class cricket again were unfounded. I would certainly not like to think like that. I still remain positive and I know what Im made of and where Ive come from, and how Ive played my cricket. Believe me, it has been a lot of passion all throughout my life. The love of the game has got me there and that love is bigger than anything, any corrupt thing, which exists. Salman Butt claims most of the 15,000 ($24,036) discovered in police searches of his hotel room during spot-fixing inquiries was all part of his tour allowances. I think everybody knows the PCB (Pakistan Cricket Board) pays us daily allowances on tours and it was a long tour, he told Sky Sports. About 11,000 of that money was from our daily allowances and being the captain I had an extra entertainment allowance which amounts to about 4500. Butts case, and that of Mohammad Asif and Mohammed Aamer, will be heard in Qatar next month. The three were all provisionally suspended by the International Cricket Council following allegations of involvement with a betting scam resulting from a sting operation that was conducted by Britains News of the World newspaper. The left-hand opening batsman is on the verge of losing his professional career as an independent tribunal is due to hear his case next month. Interestingly enough, the so-called independent tribunal would be headed by the same person who banned the trio from international cricket, i.e. Michael Beloff. However, the former skipper has other ideas. He told the British media on Monday that his love for the game has not diminished even despite of all the conspiracy theories and controversies and biased attitude of the apex body. Salman Butt has said that thousands of pounds of cash discovered by British police in his hotel room during spot-fixing inquiries earlier this year, were part of his legitimate tour allowances. Butt and fast bowlers Mohammad Asif and Mohammed Aamer were all provisionally suspended by the International Cricket Council (ICC) following allegations of match fixing revealed by Britains News of the World newspaper. Michael Beloff, who heads the ICCs code of conduct commission, will hear the spot fixing case in Doha, Qatar, next month. The love of the game has got me there and that love is bigger than anything, any corrupt thing, which exists, Butt stated. When asked about a possibility of losing his professional career, the former Pakistan captain said, No, I would certainly not like to think like that. Butts luck would be decided during January 6-11, 2011 when an independent tribunal will hear the cases of the tainted trio in Doha
