Salman Butt Said Michael Vaughan Picked The Topic In The Wrong Context And His Reaction Was Below Average And Below The Belt

Salman Butt, in a video on his Youtube channel on Saturday, asked Michael Vaughan to back his remarks with necessary statistics and called his remarks “irrelevant”. In response, the former England captain took to social media and slammed Salman Butt for “corrupting” the sport with “match-fixing”

Now, in another video uploaded on his Youtube channel on Sunday, Salman Butt responded to Michael Vaughan and said that some people have “mental constipation”.

“I don’t want to get into details. I just want to say that he’s picked the topic in the wrong context. There is no justification for a reaction like this. This is very below-average, below-the-belt. If he wants to live in the past and wants to talk about it, he surely can. Constipation is an illness. Things get stuck and they don’t come out that easily. Some people have mental constipation. Their minds are in the past. That doesn’t matter,” Salman Butt said on his YouTube channel.

Salman Butt, who played 33 Tests, 78 ODI, and 24 T20Is for Pakistan and is believed to have sharp analytical skills, explained that Virat Kohli is the best because he has the record to be called the best. Salman Butt is a Pakistani cricket commentator, cricketer, and former captain who played for Pakistan national cricket team between 2003 and 2010, before getting banned for five years for his involvement in the infamous 2010 spot-fixing scandal.

Salman Butt: There Wasn’t Any Need For Michael Vaughan To Take The Matter Of Comparing Two Great Cricketersw Into A Different Direction

The 46-year old Michael Vaughan has commented that Kane Williamson is behind Virat Kohli only because he is not an Indian. The 2005 Ashes-winning captain feels that most people say Virat Kohli is the best to get more likes and followers. He claimed that Kane Williamson is equally the best all-format player and admired the Kiwi skipper for his humility and calmness at whatever he does.

“We spoke about two great players and there was no need to take it into a different direction. But he has opted to. The year he has mentioned, he can go on. It’s the past and it’s gone. But that doesn’t change the actual fact, which we spoke about. Had he provided some statistical presentation, some logic, some experienced-based observation, it would have been better. We too could have learned something.”

“Had he spoken about cricket and proved us wrong or proved himself right, it would have been fun. But that didn’t happen. To go below the belt is an option everyone has. It just defines what you pick to do, it defines you. Now that he has done, it, he can keep on doing it as much as he can. It doesn’t affect anyone, but he has just defined himself,” he signed off.

Virat Kohli and Kane Williamson will come head to head in the much-anticipated World Test Championship final on June 18 in Southampton.

Virat Kohli has aggregated 7,490 runs from 91 Tests at a remarkable average of 52.37. The impressive tally includes 27 tons besides having a record seven double-tons in Tests. His highest score of 254* came against South Africa in 2019. Kane Williamson has scored 7,115 runs from 83 Tests with the best score of 251. In fact, Kane Williamson has a better Test average than Virat Kohli (54.31). He owns 24 tons and four double-centuries.

Notably, the ICC had banned Salman Butt, Mohammad Amir, and Mohammad Asif for 10, 7, and 5 years respectively, which was later reduced after they were found guilty of spot-fixing during the Lord’s Test in 2010.

Sachin Tendulkar Told Virat Kohli And Yusuf Pathan To Ensure He Won’t Fall Down After India Won 2011 ODI World Cup After A Hiatus Of 28 Years

Sachin Tendulkar, who went to complete a century of centuries in a 24-year-long career, scoring a mountain of runs for India, lifting the 2011 World Cup trophy turned out to be the moment he will cherish the most.

Recalling the iconic moment, Sachin Tendulkar said during an interaction organized by Unacademy: “The victory lap had one incident, when Virat and Yusuf Pathan lifted me, I told them to ensure that I do not fall down. It was not just the Indian team that won the World Cup, it was the entire nation, it is all of us who did it.”

Sachin Tendulkar also admitted that the 2011 World Cup triumph was the “best cricketing day of his life”. Sharing his emotions, the 48-year-old elaborated that the unbelievable moment saw the entire country celebrating.

“When I saw Kapil Dev lifting the World Cup in 1983, it was an unbelievable experience. I enjoyed it with my friends and I wanted to chase my dream. I decided what may come, I have to focus and chase my dream of lifting the World Cup.

“In Mumbai at Wankhede, it was just unbelievable, it was the best cricketing day of life. How many times you have the country celebrate, many few things are there which the entire country celebrates.”

That moment, titled ‘Carried On The Shoulders Of A Nation’, is a reference to the Indian historic win and has been shortlisted as one among the five contenders for the greatest Laureus Sporting Moment 2000-2020 Award. Virat Kohli and Yuvraj Singh have urged fans to vote for the cricketing great.

That moment made India the first team to win the World Cup on home soil, 28 years after Kapil Dev’s men had lifted cricket’s biggest trophy at Lord’s in 1983.

In the final, Sri Lanka had set India a target of 275, aided by Mahela Jayawardene’s sublime century. In reply, Lasith Malinga got Sachin Tendulkar and early, however, Gautam Gambhir (97) and MS Dhoni, who promoted himself up the order scoring an unbeaten 91, led the chase as India won by six wickets.

India is grappling with one of its biggest crisis, as over 3 lakh COVID-19 positive cases are being reported per day, as per official numbers. Sachin Tendulkar himself tested positive for the virus earlier this year and was even admitted to a hospital.

Speaking about his battle with COVID-19, Sachin Tendulkar thanked the medical fraternity as well as his family and friends who kept him in a positive frame of mind.

“I think it is a difficult time for all of us, these are unprecedented times and all I can say is from my first-hand experience, the entire medical fraternity, I cannot thank them enough. How they have stayed committed to saving lives, helping so many people, and nobody has complained. Nobody has said that today we do not feel like working, they are saving lives. A big thank you to all of them.”

“To my friends and family, when I was diagnosed with COVID-19, they kept me in that positive frame of mind. It is a challenging time for everyone, but we have to stay positive and help each other. My message for everyone will be to follow the new normal, washing your hands, making sure you maintain a certain level of hygiene and also to maintain social distancing,” Sachin Tendulkar added.
