Former Pakistan cricket captain Salman Butt, who was jailed for 30 months in the UK last year for spot-fixing, has called for a new trial in Pakistan.

Butt, 27, who was freed from prison last week and has since returned home, said he was wrongly convicted and would be cleared in a Pakistani court.

He was jailed along with two other cricketers for the deliberate bowling of no-balls in a 2010 Test match.

They were also given five-year playing bans, which they are appealing against.

He was released from Canterbury Prison last Thursday after serving seven months of his two-and-a-half year prison sentence.
