Salman Butt apologizes for spot-fixing scandal for the first time

Disgraced former Pakistan cricket captain Salman Butt has publicly apologized for his involvement in spot fixing for the first time.

Butt was given a 10-year band from cricket in 2011 after being caught in a sting operation by the News of the World in the scandal which also involved fast bowlers Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif. 

Butt, 28,  was said to have been the coordinated the scheme to deliberately bowl no-balls during the Lords Test against England in August 2010.

Weeks after losing an appeal to have his cricketing ban reduced, Butt told a press conference in Lahore: "I admit the decision of the ICC tribunal".

"I said it before and am saying again, that to all those who have been disappointed by my actions I do apologise for them.

"Also, the effect it had on cricket's integrity, I would like to apologise for that."

Butt revealed he has asked Pakistan Cricket Board chief Najam Sethi to lobby the ICC to decrease the severity of his ban.

"I request the interim chairman to request the ICC to reduce my and Asif's bans," added Butt.

"I have two years' ban left so if the ICC allows me to play domestic cricket then I will be ready for international matches once my ban ends.

"I have enough cricket left in me and when my ban ends I am ready to play for the country again."
