Pakistan's tainted former captain, Salman Butt, and some other Pakistani players are again in the spotlight after the International Cricket Council's Anti Corruption unit confirmed it was investigating the Ajman All Stars T20 League held recently. Butt and Asif who have served five-year bans for spot-fixing between 2010 and 2016 were among a couple of Pakistani players who took part in the private tournament which apparently has caught the attention of the ICC after visuals of some matches were aired which contained some questionable dismissals and behaviour on part of the players.

"I went there as I was not picked for the national regions one-day cup by Lahore and I was doing nothing. But when I reached there I realised it was just an amateur level event which had no match referee, ICC anti-corruption representative or even scorers," Butt said.
