Karachi, Jan.29 (ANI): The change in leadership of the Pakistans cricket team has been welcomed by former stalwarts of the game in the country.
Veteran Pakistan cricket players are of the view that handing over the captaincy to Younis Khan could revive the sagging fortunes of the national squad.
According to Inzamam-ul-Haq, one of the most successful captains of the Pakistan team said that the frequent changes in the team set-up is hampering the growth and the performance.
He hoped that Younis Khan would lead the side well and help Pakistan to regain the top spot in the World Cricket.
“I hope Younis leads the team for a longer period because frequent changes are not good for the team. Younis must perform well, as he has done, so that he can command respect and can ask others to perform well, he added.
Another former great Zaheer Abbas said:”We didn”t have desirable results under Malik. At times, a change at the top changes luck and we can only hope that the team produces good results under Younis.
He noted, now that there is a change in the leadership, all the other players will have to showcase their best on the field.
“Not just the captain, but the other 10 players in the team need to show their best so it looks like a unit,”The News quoted Abbas, as saying.
Another former captain, Rameez Raja said: I see the change as a test and trial time for Pakistan cricket. Now,Younis needs to show more respect to the office of captaincy.(ANI)
