Younis Khan & Pakistan’s Captaincy

Written by Commoner on June 2nd, 2007   (597 views)

In the history of Pakistan, Younis Khan has remained probably the most luckiest and most spectacularly failed batsman. Luckiest in the sense that Pakistan Cricket Board tolerated himself for a long long time despite of his inability to score runs and to show any consistent performance with the bat.

His one day international average is an ignominious below 27 runs. He hasnt played any single big and memorable innings in any crunch one day international, though his batting number, which is number 3 is considered the most crucial position in the modern day cricket. In the test matches, his average is slightly better, just because he has managed to score some runs on the flat pitches of the sub-continent. He scored many runs in India, but that series was considered doubtful by many.

He hasnt delivered with the bat whenever team requires him to do so. He hasnt given a damn to the grave situations, and he never tried to support his captain Inzamam. His casual, bubble-gum chewing and stupid-smiles attitude earned him the scorn of nation. Then he showed his low character by not accepting the captaincy of Pakistan team, after the departure of Inzamam-ul-Haq. But really, he perhaps doesnt know this, but the whole nation took a sigh of relief upon his refusal. Nobody really wants to see him in the team, let alone he be the captain of the national team.

Praises to Chairman PCB Dr. Naseem Ashraf, who has said that PCB will not offer captaincy again to Younis Khan. He also added that PCB would seriously consider him as a player when he would be ready. Pleasently enough, after these remarks of chairman PCB it seems that more than likely, Younis Khan has gone out of captain-race forever. Oh, how we wish that. We even dont want him in the team, ever.

After an opprobrious defeat in the world cup and the welcome resignation of Inzamam, Pakistanis were apprehensive that after getting rid of Inzamam, they would have to suffer Younis Khan, but their prayers were answered, and in some lucky moment, Younis himself refused the vacancy, and prefered to play for Yorkshire county in England. Thank you Younis  Khan.
