Salman Butt likely to get the Test captaincy

The Pakistan Cricket Board will announce the teams for next month's Asia Cup and the tour of England on May 22 and opening batsman Salman Butt is likely to get the Test captaincy.

"This is the suggestion that Aaqib gave to the inquiry committee of the board during the hearings in February and March and he had told them to appoint a co-operation candidate for the tests series in England against Australia and England," a source told PTI.

"With Afridi still not inclined to play Tests and the selectors also not too keen to try him out, it appears Salman Butt who has been in good form in recent matches might get the captaincy for the tests in England while Afridi would be retained as ODI captain for Asia Cup," the source said.

Fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar is also likely to get a nod for the upcoming events from the selectors.
