    Yousuf may play in remaining matches: Salman Butt

    BIRMINGHAM: Pakistan captain Salman Butt indicated Mohammad Yousuf would be called upon during the remainder of their series against England after a heavy second Test defeat here at Edgbaston.

    England won by nine wickets on the fourth day here on Monday to go an unbeatable 2-0 up in this four-match series.

    This victory, which followed hot on the heels of their 354-run series-opening win at Trent Bridge, was all but assured after Pakistan were bowled out for just 72 -- their lowest total against England -- on Friday's first day.

    Once again their novice top order failed to cope with the swinging ball in helpful, overcast conditions as James Anderson, who took a Test match-best 11 for 71 at Trent Bridge, returned figures of four for 20.

    Former skipper Yousuf, third in Pakistan's list of all-time Test run-scorers, was called into the squad following the Trent Bridge defeat having been handed an indefinite ban by the Pakistan Cricket Board after captaining the side on their winless tour of Australia concluded earlier this year.

    Yousuf arrived in England less than a day before the second Test started and Butt said it would have been unfair to play him so soon afterwards.

    "The last 15 days there has been very heavy rain fall in Lahore and he didn't have a chance to practise," opening batsman Butt told reporters.

    "It would have been difficult to put him in and expect a lot from him."

    Yousuf has scored 7,431 runs at 53.07 including 12 hundreds in 88 Tests and against England has an average of 70.

    "We hope he gets runs for the side," Butt added ahead of the third Test at The Oval which starts on August 18. "We hope his experience proves invaluable for the team and I hope the youngsters can learn from him."
