Singapore Cricket Team Appoints Salman Butt as a Coach

singapore cricket team appoints salman butt as a coach

Salman Butt, a former Pakistan captain, has been selected head coach of the Singapore cricket team for the 2022 season. He will work with Jamal Hussain, who is the fielding coach for the Pakistan women’s team.

Singapore will also have three big promotional activities in the next 5 months under Salman Butt as they’ll be playing for the ICC T20 World Cup qualifiers, Asia Cup qualifiers, and ICC Men’s Challenge League A for a chance to reach the ICC’s ODI World Cup qualifying stage.

Butt announced his retirement from all kinds of cricket in 2022, and this is his first major coaching role. After the board informed him that he was not being consideration for selection, he started commentating in domestic tournaments.

SCA’s chief executive officer, Saad Janjua, told the media after the formal announcement that the newly appointed coach will be based in Singapore and will travel with the team as head coach on a consultancy contract.

In the Lord’s Test in 2010, Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif, and Mohammad Amir were found guilty of spot-fixing and were banned from international cricket.

He returned to domestic cricket in 2016, and also played in the Pakistan Super League 2019 for the Lahore Qalandars, but failed to impress the selectors.

Butt was a regular opening batter for Pakistan and recognised the country in 33 Tests and 78 ODIs. In Test cricket, he has 1,889 runs while in ODI cricket, he has 2,725 runs.
