"The way I see it if Butt and Asif perform well in their comeback in domestic cricket why can't they be considered for a second chance to play international cricket? All three did the same wrong and also underwent the same punishment so why should they be treated differently," Waqar said.
Butt scored a hundred in his first competitive match in five and half years on Sunday in the national one-day championship while Asif took two wickets to leave an impact on the same day Amir left with the national team for New Zealand.                
Waqar's support for Butt and Asif to be treated equally as Amir is in contrast to recent statements of Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Shaharyar Khan and national T20 captain Shahid Afridi who have said the duo's case differs from Aamir and it will not be easy for them to make a comeback.                                     
Afridi went as far as to say that Butt and Asif don't deserve to be given a second chance like Aamir as they had lied for three years and had the audacity to criticise the Pakistan team when they were banned for five years.
