Salman Butt

India Cricket Live An aggressive left-handed opening batsman, Salman Butt made impressive strides at age-level matches before making his Test debut against Bangladesh in 2003-04. He played in the Under-19 World Cup and also toured South Africa with Pakistan's Academy team, smashing 233 against the South African Academy side. His strokeplay is not in doubt - he is known for providing electrifying starts in all forms of the game. What he lacks, though, is a tight defensive technique. The technical deficiencies were evident on his Test debut, where he mixed daring strokes with play-and-misses outside off. If he works on those flaws, Butt could be a regular in the Pakistan team for quite a while. His chances of cementing a place in the team were further enhanced through a strong showing during Pakistan's tour of Australia in 2005 where most other batsmen floundered. The inevitable comparisons to Saeed Anwar cropped up when Pakistan played in India, but Butt failed to impress in the Tests.
