Salman Butt released from prison

Disgraced former Pakistan cricket captain Salman Butt has been released from prison early, his lawyers confirmed today.

The ex-Test captain was jailed for 30 months at Southwark Crown Court in November for match-fixing. But he was released last night, his lawyers, 25 Bedford Row, said.

The 27-year-old was the orchestrator of a plot to bowl deliberate no-balls in the Lord’s Test against England last summer.

His teammates Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir were also jailed for bowling the fraudulent no-balls, but have since been released.
