Pakistan's chief selector Iqbal Qasim has said the panel will discuss Younis Khan's ODI future with him after the completion of the ongoing tour of Sri Lanka. Younis was left out of the fifth one-dayer, which Pakistan lost to concede the series 3-1, after making only 10 runs in three innings in Sri Lanka.
Younis, 34, was dismissed for 5, 4 and 1 in the ODIs, falling to Thisara Perera twice and Nuwan Kulasekara once. He was part of the dramatic collapse that cost Pakistan the fourth match in Colombo, where they lost seven wickets for 13 runs. Younis had made only 67 runs in four innings during Pakistan's previous one-day assignment, the Asia Cup in Bangladesh.
"It's the duty of the senior cricketers to lead the team, to carry the team and to drive it forward, but if one of your senior players is struggling then that puts pressure on the team," Qasim told Pakpassion.net. "Let the tour of Sri Lanka finish and then we will definitely discuss his future plans with him [Younis]. Younis has of course already requested not to be selected in T20s, I don't know what he has in mind regarding 50-over cricket.
