Butt still upbeat

Former Pakistan captain Salman Butt appeared upbeat as he arrived at a Swiss court Friday in a bid to overturn a ban imposed for spot-fixing and revive his cricket career.

"I feel good," Butt said as he arrived at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Lausanne, shortly after 9:00 am (0800 GMT).

His appearance comes a day after Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Asif appeared before the court, in what he described to AFP as a "quite busy" day of hearings about the infamous Lord's Test against England in 2010.

Butt, Asif and fellow paceman Mohammad Aamer were banned by the International Cricket Council (ICC) in 2011 after being found guilty of deliberately contriving no balls to order in that match.
