Former Pakistan captain and senior batsman, Younis Khan has caused a stir in the cricket circles by openly suggesting that he is not happy with the behaviour of Test captain, Misbah-ul-Haq and head coach Waqar Younis.
In an interview to "Express" channel, Younis without taking names openly suggested that he had not been treated fairly by the captain and 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.
His comments have only given authenticity to rumours that some of the players are not happy with the behaviour of Misbah and Waqar towards them and there have been incidents where the two have openly run down players in the dressing room.
Younis, a veteran of 101 Tests and 264 one-day internationals, 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. Against South Africa at the last minute I was inducted 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. Younis also made it clear that no one should make any comparisons between him and Misbah-ul-Haq. - PTI
