Pakistan's former captain Salman Butt said yesterday he had offered to take part in anti-corruption rehab a week after an international court threw out his appeal against a spot-fixing ban

The 28-year-old, along with team-mates Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Aamer, was banned for contriving deliberate no-balls for cash during the 2010 Lord’s Test against England.

ICC in 2011 banned Butt for 10 years, with five suspended on the condition that he commits no further offences and takes part in a programme of anti-corruption education. “I have offered my availability for the rehabilitation and whenever the PCB wanted me to appear I will be ready,” Butt told AFP.
