KARACHI: Pakistan star cricketer Mohammad Yousuf said that he wants to play cricket for Pakistan and he is the need of the national team but he is not being given any chance.

He said that he has left the matter to the nation and if he did any wrong he apologizes to the nation for that.

Addressing the media at the Karachi Press Club here on Saturday, Mohammad Yousuf said that he is not going to any court for justice as the people of the country are his judges.

He said that he is a cricketer and this is not his job to making rounds of the courts and if he does that then how can he play cricket.

He said that he did not commit any crime by playing the Indian Cricket League (ICL).

Yousuf appealed to President Asif Ali Zardari to look into his matter and hopes that he would make a positive decision regarding his inclusion in the national team.

The “running machine” said that he is the second best batsman in the world according to the latest ICC Test ranking and on the ninth position in the ODI rankings.

He asked that when no ban has been imposed on the ICL players in India then why the ICL’s Pakistani players have been banned here.
