    Salman Butt replaces Mohammad Hafeez in the Lahore Qalandars squad for PSL 2019

    Salman Butt replaces Mohammad Hafeez in Qalandars’ squad

    Dubai, 19 February 2019:

    Opener Salman Butt will replace Mohamamd Hafeez in Lahore Qalandars’ squad for the HBL Pakistan Super League 2019, it was announced today.

    Hafeez has been ruled out of the tournament after fracturing his thumb during his side’s 16 February match against Karachi Kings.

    As per the event regulations, Lahore Qalandars requested the Event Technical Committee, headed by Mr Mudassar Nazar, to replace Hafeez with Salman. This request has been approved.

    Salman has been in the player draft for the past three years and comes in as a Silver Category player.

    Salman was a member of the Pakistan squad that won the ICC World T20 in England in 2009. He has played 24 T20Is in which he has scored 595 runs. In 74 T20s, Salman has scored 2,278 runs at an average of just over 36 with a strike-rate of 113.5.

    Qalandars coach Aqib Javed said: “It was unfortunate to lose Hafeez. We believe that only an experienced Pakistani player like Salman Butt can replace him.”

    Team manager Sameen Rana said: “Salman is a good addition to squad. He was available in past and has been in good form. We believe that he deserve a chance to showcase his form at this level as well.”

    Lahore Qalandars has played three matches to date and has won one. Their upcoming matches are:

    22 February – v Multan Sultan (d), Sharjah

    23 February – v Quetta Gladiators (d), Sharjah

    27 February – v Quetta Gladiators (d), Dubai

    28 February – v Karachi Kings (n), Dubai

    5 March – v Peshawar Zalmi (d), Abu Dhabi

    9 March – v Islamabad United (n), Lahore

    10 March – v Multan Sultan (n), Lahore

    Based on this I hope LQ loses every single match in which Butt features. They had the opportunity to include an exciting, young batsman and instead they went with a 35+ never-been who isn't even suited for T20 cricket.


    Glad LQ are already dead last in the table for a fourth year running. Inshallah they will remain there.

    Amazing how people running LQ & PSL have no qualms in letting this guy play. Team's captain who sold his country for money, went to jail and refused to accept his mistake for a long time.

    Wonder how AB feels about this.

    Besides the controversial element of the selection, cannot seem to understand the tactical aspect of it either.

    The openers are actually a good pair. Salman Butt will only ruin the balance of the side. Even Devcich is struggling to do anything if he isn't opening.

    WTH! Now I have realized why Lahore Qalandars are so behind. The management of LQ is using Rana sb as a tool for money.

    Not against salman butt but he is not a t20 player fgs

    I'm done with Lahore qalandars. Not supporting them anymore.

    I thought it could have been asad, khurram, fawad, rifatullah but, they have presented us with one of the worst t20 batsmen in Pakistan. Well done i wanted peshawar to finish last due to Misbah etc, now not sure which team i want to finish last.

    As a LQ supporter I wish Salman Butt the very best and would like to congratulate Fawad Rana for this shrewd acquisition. I hope Salman Butt will also be treated with a scrumptious cake to mark this historical moment, perhaps this time round there will be no snub with the cake sharing as we sadly saw with AB. In contrast with the scrumptious dessert, it was a great shame to see such a distasteful gesture from the South African great but this is a great chance for Salman Butt to ignite positively in the dressing room and out in the middle.

    It's a good, interesting and surprising choice. I feel his batting should be beneficial, and it gives him an opportunity to start correcting some of the things from his past.

    People will predictable cry about youngsters, but you have to look at it from LQ's perspective as well. They have been the flop team for 3 seasons and are languishing at the bottom yet again. They are not in a position to take a punt with an unproven youngster.

    Butt is not explosive but he is highly experienced. His job would be to bat through the innings and let the likes of Fakhar, Akhtar, de Villiers, Devcich and Brathwaite go hard after the bowling. LQ have taken a strategic decision based on their circumstances. It may or may not pay-off, but they are not supposed to take decisions based on what the PPers want.

    Why arre they letting this tainted player who has hardly shown any remorse and kept telling continuous lies until he realised there was no other way to play but finally owned up. Even his 'admission' to his tainted past was on the pretext he will be allowed to play again. What a disgrace. (Amir's case is different btw he owned up straight away and showed repent).

    Salman Butt was on the verge of a recall in the 2016 T20 WC only to be blocked by Afridi, he was on the verge of being recalled for the WI tour of 2017 only for the Spot fixing scandal in the PSL to stand in his way.

    If Amir can be allowed to play, so can he now.

    To be honest, if Salman Butt scores runs in the tournament and really catches the eye of the selectors, I will have no issues with him playing for Pakistan again. If Amir can be allowed to play, then you should be fair to the likes of Butt and Asif as well.

    Lolz chawalo u guys deserve to be humilated again and again and again untill u guys dont learn to adress your problems and pick the right people for the right job.

    Picking a opener while the problem lies in the middle lower order?????

    First 2 matches the openers provide you with a start, but the middle order doesnt capatalize on that and collapse. One match the openers failed and all of the sudden the problem lies at the top🤣🤣

    What they do then is pick a bawa buddah to give the so called stability at the top. Challo stability de bi di. Lets say the openers give u a good start 80 runs in 8 over for example.

    After that ab comes in and gets out what then? Then the same problem ll repeat its self.

    Moral of the story is that lahore qalandars need strong middle order batsmen who can change gears in the later overs. Salman butt is not the solition.

    The problem is no 5,6 and 7.

    Bringing sohail akhtar down the order is also not a solution, bcz he cant provide u stability.

    The solution is to pick the best local lower order batsmen u have. In my eyes ali khan is the best lower order batsmen we have.

    Ali khan with asif ali are the best we have and if one of your best lower order batsmen is not playing in the biggest league of your country then that becomes a problem. It is really shamefull.

    Yeah but Amir appeared to show general remorse, asked for forgiveness etc from day one. SB never seemed genuine and only finally owned up because he wanted to play again. I have nothing against him personally but gives the wrong message. As he has been picked I hope he does well and doesn't let Lahore, Pakistan and cricket down, and himself offcourse.

    Butt should have been given a chance, but it is too late now. He is not needed thanks to the emergence of Imam and the resurgence of Shan.

    9 years away from the sport. Plus his comeback has been delayed by 3 plus years. I think SB inspite of his mistakes and wrong doing has suffered enough now.

    I understand the argument that Salman Butt has served his punishment and have suffered enough and for that he is allowed to earn a respectful living by playing in domestic cricket. The game does not owe him anything. Pakistan does not owe him anything.

    Amir denied his involvement initially, but changed his tune when he saw an opportunity. He successfully played the "young and naive" card to get away with it, as advised by his legal team.

    Amir is as big an offender as Butt and Asif. The only thing that saved him is his age, and PCB were indeed extremely hypocritical to welcome him back with a red carpet and completely close the door on the other two. Nevertheless, it is too late to select them now.

    The greatest T20 league in the world strikes again.

    I've said it before that Pakistan TTF League is basically jobs for the boys with selections based on friendships rather than merit. It's become a slightly more glitzed up version of the Faysal Bank T20.

    Can't wait until this farce is over.

    You guys should look at the situation rather than the player they chose. It's clear they want to hold one end while playing free strokes on the other. Adds good balance to the squad to score 150 and then leave it to the bowlers to do the rest.

    Salman Butt
    Fakhar Zaman
    AB C
    Agha/Haris Sohail
    Umair Masood WK
    Sohail Akhtar
    Corey Anderson
    Vijjoen
    Shaheen Afridi
    Haris Rauf
    Lameciene

    Picking a opener while the problem lies in the middle lower order?????

    First 2 matches the openers provide you with a start, but the middle order doesnt capatalize on that and collapse. One match the openers failed and all of the sudden the problem lies at the top🤣🤣

    What they do then is pick a bawa buddah to give the so called stability at the top. Challo stability de bi di. Lets say the openers give u a good start 80 runs in 8 over for example.

    After that ab comes in and gets out what then? Then the same problem ll repeat its self.

    Moral of the story is that lahore qalandars need strong middle order batsmen who can change gears in the later overs. Salman butt is not the solition.

    The problem is no 5,6 and 7.

    Bringing sohail akhtar down the order is also not a solution, bcz he cant provide u stability.

    The solution is to pick the best local lower order batsmen u have. In my eyes ali khan is the best lower order batsmen we have.

    Ali khan with asif ali are the best we have and if one of your best lower order batsmen is not playing in the biggest league of your country then that becomes a problem. It is really shamefull.
    they have Saad Ali! why they are not playing him in middle order?

    Butt is not explosive but he is highly experienced. His job would be to bat through the innings and let the likes of Fakhar, Akhtar, de Villiers, Devcich and Brathwaite go hard after the bowling.

    Could have gone back to Azhar ali for that reason or even take Asad Shafiq... What they have done is unacceptable..

    There is no place for saad ali in the team. The only places for such batsmen like saad ali, haris sohail, babar azam or even saud shakeel in t20 is the opening slot.

    The reason for that is that you have to be dynamic in the middle order. You have to have a power game and those players dont have that.

    They can be good strokemakers like babar azam and can utilize that in the powerplay, but those players struggle when they have to change gears and go for the boundries.

    WHAT?



    LQ just lost 80% of their fanbase, IF THEY HAD ANY left.

    Ok, first they let Umar Akmal, the best T20 batsman in the PSL go. GENIUS!

    And now including a mediocre, average accumulator who is past his prime?!?! His past aside, that too will be disliked by a lot of folks.


    I wonder how a legend like AB will play alongside a character like Butt. Can he really do that?

    Regardless.


    They lost any supporters they had left. Now everyone will celebrate their loss, and wish for them to end last. Apart from a small minority.

    They couldn't have decided it without Hafeez's consultation/approval.

    well how dynamic is brendan taylor and devcich lol... Devcich a leg side hack, who had a int'l career because of his connections... Both of them clearly struggle against spin and pace on these slow low pitches...

    all the players you mentioned (saad ali, haris sohail, babar azam, saud shakeel) can easily bat in middle overs with 100+ strike rate and will also average good numbers. they all are better than what currently LQ are playing in middle order bar AB.

    Sure that Hafeez wouldn't protest, given that his PSL is over. But, I would expect AB to oppose his inclusion.

    I was gonna say that. He's the one who is the most responsible for LQs position. Everyone can be released but him.

    Butt is 20 off 150 type player.

    Don't be fooled.

    Just happy that LQ is going down even further, from a point of no return.

    This edition they're out like before.

    Not really, they were considering to have someone " EXPERIENCED ". In other words it was a tough contest between Salman Butt and Azhar Ali.

    Hafeez was playing in the middle order and they already have Haris Sohail and Saad Ali..

    Corey and Brathwaite will be coming back soon...

    No reason to call this fixer unless they are trying to unsettle the opening pair which is doing well by playing salman butt ahead of fakhar and sohail akthar... Well I do expect the clown Aqib to do that too...

    Honestly

    Fawad Alam would've been a better choice. They're at the same level when it comes to acceleration or strike rate .

    Butt probably even inferior .

    He would've done the job perfectly at no. 4. Besides the openers are doing a good job. If Aqib was looking for a captain after AB, Fawad would've dealt with the captaincy also
