Chief selector Haroon Rashid said,
“While picking the squad, the team management and skipper were consulted by the selectors, and all concerned gave their consent in this regard. The T20 team has been selected keeping in mind the conditions during Asia cup and World T20 and the recent performances of some players in domestic and A Team tours. The team is a fine blend of experience and youth and the selectors believe that team will do well in both tournaments.”
Pakistan former captain Younis Khan, in his recent media statement, has said that he would like to retire from ODI Cricket with honour, He said that he knows very well that there is no chance for him to play until ICC World Cup 2019.
From a double hundred against Zimbabwe in the 3rd innings to a gutsy 171* against Sri Lanka to get the target, khan never lacks what it take to be the best. Getting back to back hundreds against Australia isn’t much of a easy act khan gels up with who ever is on the other end and forms his way through the thick and thin and saves Pakistan from the unwanted defeat. He’s not been the best in the short format but there’s no doubt that Younis is nothing less than one of the best test cricketer undoubtedly Pakistan has produced.
