Younis has finally done it!


Younis Khan has finally broken the ice, after meeting board’s chairman. After the meeting, as in case of every player, he has been selected in the national squad for the UAE tour. His appearance in the international cricket, after winning World Twenty20 in 2009, had been ‘rare’. He only played the ODI series down under. After the winless tour of Australia, he was banned for life; on the recommendations of the investigating committee. Some other players were also banned and few fined. Except Mohammad Yousuf, all of them appealed against their bans and fines. All of them got their bans overturned and fines halved, but Younis Khan refused for a ‘BIG Deal’

In the domestic T20 tournament, Younis Khan, abruptly accepted the offer of meeting and after few days he was called by the board’s chairman. In the amicable meeting, he resolved his issues with the board. At a press conference later in the day in Karachi Mohsin Khan, chief selector, announced that Younis had joined the training camp in Lahore. “The chairman [PCB] has given clearance this afternoon to Younis Khan and that is good news,” Mohsin told reporters. “I discussed with the selection committee and we picked him straight away. He is fit, playing top-class cricket.”

After this incident, It can be deduced that anything is possible in Pakistan Cricket.
