Butt also asked Pawar for an Indo-Pak match that would bring much needed relief to the nation’s cricketing woes.
Dodging further questions on the spot-fixing scandal, Butt said that he would wait for the completion of the probe before talking, adding that Scotland Yard was inquiring into the entire mess.
