Younis Khan Should be Part of ODI Squad: Shaharyar Khan

The selectors' decision to oust Younis Khan from the ODI squad last month caused a lot of bitterness between the batsman and the selectors and board. Younis had hit out at them for not showing enough respect to senior players after being dropped and even offered to step down from the Test squad.

Karachi: The national selectors might have ignored Younis Khan from the ODI squad, but Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Shaharyar Khan today said that the senior batsman should be part of the team's 2015 World Cup plans.

"In my personal opinion I think Younis should be in the one-day team but this is the domain of the national selectors and I don't interfere in their work," said Shaharyar.

His remarks are sure to put pressure on the national selection committee headed by Moin Khan to include Younis in the one-day squad, especially after he scored twin hundreds in the first Test against Australia in Dubai last week.
