In the cricket world, taking jibe at each other is going on. The tug of words between Vaughan and Butt's had started when the former Pakistan opener had criticised the ex-English captain for stirring up an unnecessary controversy by drawing comparisons between Virat Kohli and Kane Williamson.
Now the jibe is going on as the former Pakistan opener Salman Butt has hit back at Michael Vaughan's mocking remarks on social media, describing the "match-fixing" jibe as a "below the belt" remark while adding that some people have "mental constipation".
This was the infamous spot fixing scam which took place during Salman Butt-led Pakistan's 2010 tour of England where Butt was banned from cricket for 10 years for the spot-fixing scandal in 2010.
Butt quoted saying in his YouTube channel: "I don't want to get into details. I just want to say that he's picked the topic in the wrong context. There is no justification for a reaction like this. This is very below-average, below-the-belt. If he wants to live in the past and wants to talk about it, he surely can. Constipation is an illness.
Things get stuck and they don’t come out that easily. Some people have mental constipation. Their minds are in the past. That doesn’t matter. Had he provided some statistical presentation, some logic, some experienced-based observation, it would have been better. We too could have learned something.”
