Younis likely to return as captain in Aussies series

KARACHI: Chairman Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Ijaz Butt has indicated that Younis Khan may return in the national team as captain on the tour of Australia.

After Pakistanís 1-2 defeat in the ODI series against New Zealand, Younis had called on the PCB chairman and requested to allow him get out of the team for taking rest for some weeks.

Talking with a foreign website, Ijaz Butt said that he hoped that Younis would soon return to the team and he may make his comeback as captain.

Rejecting the objections from players on Younisís captaincy, he said that Younis had asked to allow him time for rest which he granted.

He said that whenever Younis would be back in the team the PCB would see him as a candidate for captaincy.
