    Karachi: A top official of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has ruled out any disciplinary action against senior batsman Younis Khan for his recent controversial comments against Test captain Misbah-ul-Haq and coach Waqar Younis. Najam Sethi, who heads the powerful executive committee in the PCB since resigning as chairman last year, admitted that Younis said some harsh words but insisted the board had no intention of taking any action against senior cricketer.

    “I have heard about his remarks but I think we need to be a bit mature about this. Younis is a senior player and he has been playing well. One can understand some frustration but we need to move on,” Sethi said

    Younis, in his recent interviews, insisted he could still play one-day cricket and also indirectly blamed captain Misbah and head coach Waqar for not giving him and other players confidence.

    “I don’t know if I had not scored those 177 runs in the fourth innings of the third Test in Sri Lanka what would have happened. Most probably I would have been dropped. But this is not the way to treat senior players, they need to be given confidence. I have always give my best for Pakistan,” Younis had said.

    Younis, a former captain, also insisted that he had been treated unfairly by the selectors when they didn’t consider him for the ODI side. He also expressed his ambition to lead the team again if given an opportunity. Sethi said as far as Younis’ insistence on playing ODIs was concerned this was not a decision for him to make.

    “It not a decision he can make. It is up to the selectors and team management. If they feel he is required he will play,” Sethi said. “As far as his desire to lead the team again is concerned there is nothing wrong in expressing this. But I think right now things are settled,” he added.

    The former PCB Chairman also felt that both Younis and Misbah were mature people who had contributed a lot to Pakistan cricket in recent years. “I really don’t know what he exactly said on this issue but I don’t foresee any problems because of it.”

    Obviously. Had they taken any action then he would have started to cry and threaten to quit again. Right or wrong, no player should be allowed to make such comments.

    Well considering they snatched a few years of his career after people revolted against him this is fair. Some people will literally do anything to try and discredit his amazing test feats but I guess the only thing he can do perform and get even more foreign support for his quality innings and be respected by them.

    I really do not care what Misbah and Younus Khan do in terms of interviews as long as they do not cheat or fix. People love the cheat Mohammad Amir even though he was involved in spot fixing and want him back in the team but a Test Legend is being lambasted for what he said in an interview lol

    Younis says he is not being treated fairly

    KARACHI: Pakistan batsman Younis Khan has given a hint that he is not happy with Test captain Misbah-ul Haq and head coach Waqar Younis.

    In an interview to a news channel, the seasoned batsman who recently scored his 30th Test century, suggested that he had not been treated fairly by the captain and the coach.

    “I don’t know if I had not scored those 177 runs in the fourth innings of the third Test in Sri Lanka what would have happened. Most probably I would have been dropped. But this is not the way to treat senior players; they need to be given confidence and I have always played for and given my best for Pakistan,” Younis said.

    There had been rumours that some of the players were not happy with Misbah and Waqar.
    Younis, who has played 101 Tests and 264 ODIs, also made it clear he was not happy at being dropped from the one-day squad.

    “Why can’t I play one-day cricket. What is wrong with me? Am I not fit or good enough? If I had been given a chance in the recent home series against Zimbabwe I would definitely have got runs.

    “In the World Cup also I was not sure whether I would play or not. I was inducted against South Africa at the last minute because of the injury to Haris Sohail. I scored 37 valuable runs. I have scored runs against every strong opposition so why can’t I play ODIs? I have also gone up and played against any side when others have backed down,” he added.

    Younus must be heard on his desire to play ODIs: Javed Miandad


    Former Pakistan captain Javed Miandad has forwarded his opinion that the players of the national team should follow the code of conduct laid down by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) while commenting on Younus Khan’s controversial comments about Test captain Misbahul Haq and coach Waqar Younus.

    The man who hit the historic six in Sharjah added that it is up to the players to realise what they can and what they cannot say under the PCB’s code of conduct.

    “I really don’t know in what context Younus has made his remarks but definitely players must follow the code of conduct and it is the job of the PCB to ensure this happens,” said Miandad, while speaking to a state television sports channel.

    Sri Lanka batting legend Sanath Jayasuriya backed Miandad insisting that the cricket boards and their code of conduct should be respected by players all across the world.

    “From what I have heard if Younus has said he wants to captain the team again, that is his opinion and he can have that, there is nothing wrong with that but in other issues it is job of board to convince players to follow the code for them,” said Jayasuriya.

    Thrice national team coach Miandad further added that PCB should talk directly to Younus and allow him to present his viewpoint.

    “Younus has given a lot to Pakistan cricket and he deserves to be heard by board officials. He must be heard on his desire to play ODI cricket or his ambition to captain the team. But yes I don’t think Younus needed to also talk about these things in public he should have talked to the board. There are some things players shouldn’t discuss in public,” added Miandad.

    Miandad also said that Younus’ comments about not comparing him with Misbah were not right.

    “I don’t know but what happens now when both sit in the same dressing room. These things cause problems and every player has his band of supporters in the team. And when misunderstandings happens it encourages groupings and it is not good for the team,” he said.

    Younus, in his controversial comments in two interviews, said no should compare him with Misbah since the latter batted down the order and he batted up the order and secondly he (Younus) was more experienced and had scored more runs and was younger to Misbah so there was no comparison.

    Pakistan’s test off-spinner, Saqlain Mushtaq, however, felt that both Younus and Misbah were mature and sensible persons and there be no problems between them or in the dressing room.

    No, it's not. It's wrong. People loving Amir or others doesn't make what Younis said right, especially not since it seems like he's yet again complaining about being dropped from ODIs and making moves to get back in the ODI Squad.

    FINALLY our ODI squad is without Afridi and Misbah and despite of a series loss against Bangladesh, looking better and seem to be improving and now he wants back in again after getting humiliated infront of the entire world?

    To hell with this shit. I'm tired of seniors and legends getting away with everything. What happened to YK wasn't right and I've always spoken against it, and he's always been my fav player in the test team too and rated him higher than Moyo, Inzy and others, but that doesn't mean I'll support everything he does just like that. People need to get their heads out of their ass and support Pakistan instead of their favourites for once. Too many fanboys around who'll support whatever their favourite does and spend time bashing others 24/7.

    This is a disease Pakistan Cricket has been infected by for decades and sooner than later, PCB have to take action and ensure it doesn't happen in the future. You shouldn't be able to force your way back in the team or be given a leeway because of seniority/legend status.

    Not really a surprise.

    The same 'team man' blackmailed the selectors to get into the WC squad at his countries expense.

    A selfish and egotistical man.

    I don't understand what on earth is wrong with this guy! He behaves childish at times and has many times in the past. Just because you are respected and loved by people as a test batsman because you score runs. It doesn't make it okay to say stupid stuff or wanting to play ODI's...Younis isn't simply good enough to play ODI's
