ISLAMABAD (AP) -- Former captain Salman Butt wants the Pakistan Cricket Board to treat banned players equally in their bid to resume their domestic and international careers.

In 2010, Butt and teammates Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif were jailed and banned for a minimum of five years by the International Cricket Council for bowling deliberate no-balls during a test match against England.

PCB chairman Najam Sethi has said he will fight at the ICC for Amir to resume playing at least domestic first class cricket later this year after ICC anti-corruption laws are amended in June. Sethi said top lawyers in UK have advised him that Butt and Asif do not have strong cases.

Butt says he would like Sethi to plead his case to the ICC like "he is doing for Amir."
