Salman Butt PROFILE

Salman Butt is a wristy left-handed opening batsman from Pakistan. He is sharp and has a self-assured air about him and is one of the few younger players confident when speaking English.His inevitable flicks, drives and cut shots give him the resemblance of Aamir Sohail. He is mainly strong through the regions of extra cover and backward point. His stroke play has not at all been in doubt and he is capable of providing exhilarating starts when needed.After an remarkable start to his career, however, he was dropped and then struggled to hold his place in the side. Butt is a confident southpaw who works very hard for his runs.His drives and cuts through the arc between extra cover and backward point are inevitably flicked, often scooped and it is a high-scoring region.

He doesn't mind pulling either and off his toes.His breakthrough period was the winter of 2004, where he first scored an ODI century against India at Eden Gardens and then went further by scoring a fifty and a maiden Test century in Sydney later in the year. For most of 2005, he failed to build on that and despite another ODI century, also against India, doubts about his defensive technique and overt dash crept in, resulting in him dropping in and out of the team. 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. Butt is a confident southpaw who works very hard for his runs.
