ICL: Indian Cricket League

Inzamam to replace Younis at Yorkshire


inziInzamam-ul-Haq is set to make his county debut for Yorkshire, replacing Younis Khan who will be with the Pakistan team at the Twenty20 World Championship.

The former Pakistan captain will play three four-day and as many one-day matches for the county.

“I was approached by Yorkshire county for a short stint and I have accepted it, as I see it as a great opportunity to keep my fitness for a hectic international season,” Inzamam said.

Inzamam, who retired from One-day Internationals (ODIs) after Pakistan’s disastrous World Cup campaign earlier this year, was not awarded a central contract but has maintained that he still wants to play Test cricket.

With the domestic season not starting before the home series against South Africa, the short county stint will provide Inzamam the perfect opportunity to prove his fitness to national selectors.

Inzamam has also been linked with a move to the Indian Cricket League (ICL). However, no confirmation of that has been received.
