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.

The scandal was exposed by the News of the World tabloid in a sting operation.
