Salman Butt the Commentator

After hearing the news that Salman Butt is going to be doing a commentary job for a Pakistani sports channel, I must confess I seriously feel he has the audacity of a true bastard.
And he doesn't even look like one.

So what would one do if one's misdeeds were placed all exposed before the world to see? Normally, the criminal cringes first with shame. And then he does his best to become a recluse and save his face to become the endless target of deploring looks and a PCB chairman's froggy smiles. (Ijaz Butt teddies are even up for sale nowadays to hug the poor criminals whom no one wants to hug).

Salman Butt is clearly not following that normal procedure and he cites him having the need to earn a livelihood as the case and using his 'experience'. If he'd be sharing his unusual and rare experience of how to act suave and then get involved in spot fixing, then that's believable. But his cricket knowledge? I'm not sure how many would want to hear of that.
The only fun watching him on TV would be trying to discover the tiniest traces of remorse on his face, which is unlikely.

And oh, he doesn't deserve half a million for the job.

Lalalala, say the ICC. We're not listening.

Hello, I'm Salman Butt your commentator for the night and will present you with my nauseating views on how to earn money through any use or misuse of cricket.

Absolutely right. It's disgraceful as it is that he's even being allowed to do it, much more so that he is actually going ahead without blinking. As for 'earning his livelihood', he wasn't fined as part of his punishment, so he did get to keep the money he made from "attending an ice-cream parlour's opening".

For some reason, Ijaz Butt reminds me of Lotso Bear from Toy Story 3!

Shridhar Jaju said...

I am still amazed all three keep claiming innocence in the face of such overwhelming evidence. And now this commentary stint! I mean, WTF!

I think it is as Sridhar says, he still hasn't accepted to be guilty and thus feels no problem walking around with his nose in the air (which is even a greater shame). Doing a commentary job? No dilemma for me, he says.
Bingo Rishabh, he should eat his ice creams with dirty money or start an English speaking program if he wants, but not even touch cricket with a pole.

I haven't seen ToyStory as yet, so googled the Lotso Bear, but I think he isn't fat enough.

Language please!

Stani, I try. Believe me, I seriously do, but at times one word just flaps out.

There you go...proof that Haroon Lorgat reads 'Cricket for Dummies'

sunny said...

Thanks tracer, I noticed. :)
It might have to do with telekinesis though, and I'm saying it just because it looks cooler to say.
