Karachi, Dec 5  :  The legal team that will represent Pakistan's suspended former Test captain Salman Butt in the spot-fixing case continues to grow with one of the country's most prominent lawyers Aitzaz Ahsan now joining his defence.

Ahsan, who is one of the most sought after lawyers in Pakistan, will represent Butt in the International Cricket Council Code of Conduct Commission hearing scheduled in Doha from January 6 to 11.

"Aitzaz Ahsan has joined the team as Khalid Ranjha will not be able to go to Doha," Aftab Gul one of Butt's lawyers said.

He said Butt had also added another lawyer Shahid Saeed on his legal team.

This brings the total number of lawyers representing and helping the suspended player prepare for his hearing to four. PTI
