PCB awaiting Younis Khans inputs before finalizing team for Dubai seriesMarch 20th, 2009 - 4:27 pm ICT by ANI
Karachi, Mar.2o (ANI): The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has said the team for the Dubai series against Australia would only be announced after consulting captain Younis Khan.
“Younis is our captain and we will give his views due importance before finalising the squad,” The News quoted Chief Selector Abdul Qadir, as saying.
Qadir said the board is awaiting inputs from Khan.
Pakistan is slated to host Australia in the United Arab of Emirates (UAE), where both teams will play five One-day internationals and a Twenty-20 match.
The matches would be played in Dubai and Abu Dhabi from April 22 to May 7.
It may be re-called that right after being appointed captain of the national team, Younis Khan had said that he would like to have a say in selection process of the Pakistan team, if the Board wanted Pakistan to regain the top spot in the international rankings.
Qadir also proposed hosting the postponed Bangladesh series in Dubai.
I believe that the cricket should go which is why if possible it would be great if we can have the series against Bangladesh in UAE before playing against Australia, he added. (ANI)
