LAHORE - Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has released confession statement of banned former captain Salman Butt in which he repents his actions of wrongdoing in cricket.

The PCB spokesman Thursday said: “Salman Butt starts the statement by apologizing to all the people who have been hurt or disgraced due to his actions. In the pointers he clearly admits being guilty of being a party in bowling of two deliberate no balls in the Lord’s Test match.

“He then ‘unreservedly’ and ‘unconditionally’ apologizes for the harm his actions have done to the image of PCB and also Pakistan as a nation. He then urges impending cricketers to not indulge in such activities as it ‘damages the sport of cricket’,” he added.

“Salman then forwards his availability for rehabilitation and for public education to create awareness about the adverse impacts of partaking in nefarious cricket activities,” he concluded.
