Mohammad Yousuf claims that his career is not over yet
Star Pakistani batsman Mohammad Yousuf claimed that his international career was not over, even after the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) didn’t select him in the final 15-man squad for the World Cup.
The World Cup squad was announced on 18 January yesterday and the veteran batsman was sidelined. Earlier, expressed the importance of Yousuf in the World Cup squad.
The stylish middle-order batsman said that he was disappointed following the World Cup snub. He said, “I don’t think that my international career is over. I will return to international cricket Inshallah. I don’t want to criticise anybody or the selectors.”
The main concern for Yousuf was to prove his fitness and he claimed that he was fit and in-form for the mega event. He stated, “I am in good form and could have benefited the team in the World Cup. I would have quit myself if I felt unworthy for national
duty after the World Cup.”
The veteran batsman has been one of the best batsmen for his team, and has produced some extraordinary performances throughout his career. However, his form and fitness was under the scanner for the past few months.
He failed to score any fifties in his last eight outings for in the UAE, but
the batsman failed to be fit in time and that cost him a spot in the squad.
He was ignored for the to prove his fitness and form. This earned him a spot in the preliminary World Cup squad but youngsters were given preference over Yousuf in the final 15.
The PCB is yet to name the captain for the mega event, and this decision by the board was criticised by many former players in the country. There was speculation that Afridi would not be named as captain and might be preferred over the flamboyant
The ODI series in New Zealand will be important for Afridi, as his captaincy role may be decided after the outcome of the series. Misbah has already led the team to their first Test series win after more than four years.
