Good News : Younis Khan Out

Written by Commoner on April 13th, 2008   (155 views)

There is a good news that senior middle-order batsman Younis Khan has opted out of the remaining three One-day Internationals against Bangladesh, chief selector Salahuddin Ahmed informed media.

Younus Khan was not only a failure in the first two ODIs of Lahore and Faisalabad respectively, but he is proving to be a disaster in the international arena from the outset. He performs in one or two matches and then screw the team for the whole year.

Younis Khan is considered as the backbone of the Pakistani batting line up and this backbone has got the average of merely 32 in the ODI matches and he has played 168 ODIs. His average in the test matches is below 49 and his consistency is in shambles in both formats of the game.

He has made just 3 lame hundreds in the ODIs and just 33 50s and his strike rate is extremely slow and pathetic. He often kills the tempo of team after plunging the run rate and then he becomes involved in getting his partner player runout.

It’s a relieving news that he is out for this series and now some new blood would get a chance.
