Shamed Pakistan cricket stars Salman Butt and Mohd Amir, both serving bans for spot fixing, have turned television pundits for the World T20

Both have been banned for at least five years by the ICC for their role in arranging deliberate no-balls during the 2010 Lord’s Test.

Butt, captain in the infamous Lord’s Test, appeared on the ARY news channel during Pakistan’s win over India in a warm-up match, while Amir made an appearance on Express News the same day. ARY ran promos with Butt with the tagline: “Stopped from playing, but not from speaking.” The ICC have not yet reacted to the new TV roles.
