Cricketer Salman Butt confessed to his crimes on Friday, Express News reported.

He also apologised to his fans for hurting their sentiments and requested the PCB acting Chairman Najam Sethi to reduce his sentence.

“Two more years are left before the ban is lifted, please allow me to at least play domestic cricket,” he requested Sethi.

Butt had received a 10-year ban, five years of which were suspended, following a probe of the deliberate bowling of no balls at a Test match in London in 2010.

The cricketer was found guilty by both the game’s governing body and a British court of receiving money.

@S. Sreesanth:

I wish every country should be like India, where when someone is caught cheating in cricket in IPL or other format, should not be charged and the blame should be put on Pakistani umpire.

I am happy from the comment that Pakistanis are discouraging his act unlike India where IPL stars are still praised like Gods
