ISLAMABAD, Dec 11 (APP): Former batsman Salman Butt Friday said that he could do well at any level of cricket adding that he needed an opportunity to prove him and he would not disappoint anyone.

Butt said he is fit and have been able to keep his fitness going through these five years.
“I am very thankful to Wapda for backing me and giving me the opportunity to perform and I hope and pray that I can help them win domestic competitions,” he said.
Speaking about the 2010 unfortunate incident Butt said we had had a mountain to climb before all Pakistani supporters would trust us in Pakistani colors again.
