But against England to end the year, he responded to criticism by unveiling a startling command and change of tempo, hitting a century and two fifties in the Tests, each innings worthily restrained.Not in the frame for World Cup 2007, Butt was drafted back into the side for the Abu Dhabi series against Sri Lanka and was named Pakistan's vice-captain in June.After an inspiring start to his career, however, he was dropped and then struggled to retain his place in the side.
