Karachi:Pakistan captain Younus Khan on Wednesday adjured his teammates to discuss fearlessly any issue with him and insisted he was not responsible for any communication gap.
Younus' comments came in the backdrop of vice-captain Shahid Afridi's revelation that some players had issues with Younus but were hesitant to approach him directly.
"I personally think that players should have the courage to fight for their rights and discuss their issues openly with the captain and management," Younus said.
Younus refused to agree that he was responsible for the communication gap in the team that has been highlighted a great deal by Afridi in recent days.
"I don't think I am responsible for this if there is any communication gap between the players it is because of the weak team management," he said.
The Pakistan cricket Board has changed the management of the national team for the coming series against New Zealand by dropping manager Yawar Saeed and his assistant Shafqat Rana whom Younus has blamed for the problems in the team.
