Profile

Asim Butt played five ODIs for Scotland in the 1999 World Cup, performing strongly against Australia, the eventual winners, taking 1 for 21 from 10 overs. Although he was born in Pakistan and played first-class cricket for Lahore, he settled in Scotland in the 1990s. He soon won his first Scottish cap, against Yorkshire at Boghall in May 1998, taking 3 for 42 in the Benson & Hedges Cup, on his way to 106 wickets for Scotland at an average of 24.86. He played in all of Scotland's World Cup games and remained a consistent performer, taking 6 for 42 in the first innings against MCC at Lord's in August 2000 and 5 for 47 in the second innings against Ireland four years later. He won the last of his 71 caps in the National League game against Somerset in May 2005.
