Salman Butt contacted Imran Khan before Fixing

Salman Butt’s disclosure before a British Court that he was in touch with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) Chief Imran khan while bargaining for gambling amount stunned the nation.

A British court has taken up match fixing case against Pakistani Cricketers. The accusation was highlighted when a London newspaper ‘News of the World’ released a video of Mazhar Majeed wherein he admitted to match fixing and payment of heavy amounts to Pakistani Cricketers.

During the court proceedings when Salman Butt was asked as to who he was talking on a telephone when cricketer Wahab Riaz wearing a jacket given by Mazhar Majeed stuffed with thousands of pounds sterling entered, he replied he was in contact with Imran Khan.

Moreover, Butt's lawyer Ali Bajwa QC told the court that some Pakistan numbers in the phone records during this time corresponded to calls Butt made to family, friends and former players including Imran Khan.
