LAHORE Suspended Pakistan trio of Salman Butt, Muhammad Amir and Muhammad Asif have been selected as reserves for their regional teams for the National Twenty20 tournament next month. Butt was named in Lahore team, Amir in Rawalpindi and Asif was included in Sialkot team. During the recent tour of England, the International Cricket Council (ICC) had suspended the trio for their alleged involvement in a betting scandal. The players have responded to the charges levelled against them, but are yet to be told the dates for their ICC hearing. The three players would still need clearance from the ICC to take part in the event. Meanwhile, defending the decision to select the players, Rawalpindi Cricket Association chief Naeem Akhtar said that the association is hopeful that Amir would come out clean in the scandal. If Amir gets cleared before the Twenty20 tournament and we do not submit his name to the PCB for it, we could not play him in the tournament, Akhtar said.
