Former Pakistan Captain Shahid Afridi's legal counsel and spokesman, Syed Ali Zaffar, said that Mr. Ijaz Butt's nuts are loose, and he always speaks without thinking about the consequences.
Commenting on Ijaz Butt's statement that "Shahid Afridi is not a captaincy material", Ali Zaffar said "Ijaz Butt's statement that Shahid Afridi will not captain the Pakistan team again is not only very irresponsible but is like an order or direction to the governing council members (who choose the captain in consultation with the board chairman) and to the selection committee not to even consider him. In this regard, Mr Butt is usurping the authority of the governing council members and selection committee and is clearly acting illegally."
Ali Zaffar futher said, "Afridi can take him to court if he so chooses. I will however add that I have had no discussion with Afridi in this regard. Mr Ijaz Butt's nuts are loose as he virtually enjoys dictatorial powers."
