Sharjah: Pakistani Batsman Younis Khan is set to return in limited over game for Pakistan along with Umar Gul & Wahab Riaz. Younis Khan who has scored more than 8000 runs for Pakistan & also holds the record for most numbers of centuries for Pakistan was axed by PCB against Australia for 3 match ODI series, later they got whitewash in that.
After being sacked by PCB Younis challenged them by saying “Don’t select me, not even in Tests. I sacrifice my future, “I am saying a simple thing, if they are saying that youngsters are future of ODIs, then where is the future of Pakistan in Test cricket? Don’t select me in Test matches and make [the youngsters] the future of Pakistan in Test cricket too. But what will happen if they can’t make a team for ODIs and Test matches after five months, will they again do recalling?”. Seems like Younis Khan won the battle agianst PCB & will now be playing with his head high as he has always demanded.
