Cricketer Salman Butt out of jail
The ex-Test captain was jailed for 30 months at Southwark Crown Court in November for match-fixing. But he was released on Wednesday night, his lawyers, 25 Bedford Row, said.
The 27-year-old was the orchestrator of a plot to bowl deliberate no-balls in the Lord’s Test against England last summer. His teammates Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir were also jailed for bowling the fraudulent no-balls, but have since been released.
