    Butt released early from prison

    Salman Butt, the former Pakistan captain who was convicted of spot-fixing, is travelling back to Pakistan after being released from prison seven months into his 30 month sentence, Butt's lawyers have confirmed.

    His release under the government's early release scheme for foreign nationals means Butt has been formally deported from the UK and cannot return for 10 years.

    So he gets away after serving even less than a quarter of his sentence? I don't know how this happened but I'd have liked him to be kept behind the bars for a longer period of time so as to set a strong precedent in order to dissuade cricketers from stuff such as match fixing and all.

    I'm sure he won't be allowed to play atleast? If he comes back into the squad, it'd be an utter disgrace.

    Butt is still banned for nearly 4 years FTR.

    But I hate how he's hardly got any worse treatment than Amir did.

    He should be in jail for longer.

    And he should've been banned from cricket for life. So should the other two sleazebags.

    Why should Amir get to play? Just because he was a great bowler? No. That's not how it should work.

    The rule of law states that the law applies to everyone and everyone equally. He shouldn't get off lightly just because he was young, or talented. He knew what he was doing. He's scum. Doesn't deserve to play again.

    He was young and tricked into it! He has served enough punishment; destroying his career is punishment enough.

    Wrong on so many levels. Amir's ignorance got him into prison and no he didn't know what he was doing. You tell me if you were 5 year old and I gave you a lollipop mixed with drugs... you will take it and start sucking on it. Exact same thing happened with Amir, he was drove into something he had no idea of.

    Will you punish this little boy for receiving the drugged lollipop? I think not.

    He's not ****ing 5 years old. He was 18 (at least, personally I don't trust any Pakistani when they say how old they are. They lie about their ages all the time).

    Point is that he was an adult. He knew EXACTLY what he was doing. He wasn't "tricked" into doing it. People just want to believe it because that means he's not the bad guy. He's a scumbag who doesn't deserve to play the game. He deserves a career cleaning toilets with his tongue. What a disgrace it will be if he ever plays cricket for Pak again. If he does & plays Aus I might even go to a match with a special sign just for him...

    I would be just as horrified, sad and disillusioned as I was when these 3 were caught fixing. (I really liked Salman Butt, thought he was doing a good job as captain).

    I wouldn't say they lie about their age. Birthdays aren't a celebrated thing in Islam, s he don't keep track of it. My dad knows many Pakistanis who don't have a clue how old they are.

    I think it's pretty safe to say they lie. Or at least omit the truth. Amir looked way older than 17 when I first saw him and Umar Akmal looked about 30 and claimed he was 21.

    I think they have birth certificates but they're not always right. Because they're not tracked in Pakistan.

    Ya things like that aren't kept record of in Pak. There was a guy playing for Pak once and they claimed he was 14 years old. (LOL), as soon as the ICC did an inquiry they (Pakistan management) changed his supposed age from 14 to 16...

    An Aussie guy who played for my club last year had played Australia under 19's, and he said on tour to Pakistan all the Pakistani players were like in their 30's.

    LOL.

    I love how that 14 year old supposedly stopped playing cricket at the age of like 28. Just goes to show how wrong his supposed age was. Probably 5 years out.

    Hasn't played any FC cricket, but played a few 2nd XI games a few years ago when he must've been only 19. It's a shame as it seems his cricket career has somewhat fallen away, and he's know been dropped from the first grade team for his club back in Perth.

    Was still the highest run scorer in the entire Middlesex League though.

    Played alongside Mitchell Marsh FTR.
