PCB bans Mohammad Yousuf and Younis Khan from playing for Pakistan

As a part of their efforts to get the national team back on track after the disastrous Australian tour, the PCB has decided to ban the two top batsmen of Pakistan from playing for the national team– permanently. The PCB also slapped one year bans to Shoaib Malik and Rana Naveed and also fined Shahid Afridi and the Akmal brothers for various reasons.

“Mohammad Yousuf and Younis Khan, keeping in view their infighting which resulted in bringing down the whole team, their attitude has a trickledown effect which is a bad influence for the whole team should not be part of national team in any format,” the board said in its statement issued on Wednesday. The PCB has stopped short of calling the punishment a life ban. “They will not be part of any Pakistan team in any format from here on,” Taffazul Rizvi, the board’s legal advisor told Cricinfo. “A life ban means they cannot play domestic cricket or any other similar cricket, but we are not stopping them from that. They can play domestic cricket or county cricket here and abroad.” The cases of indiscipline that have led to one-year bans on Malik and Rana, similarly, have not been expanded upon. “Rana Naved ul Hasan and Shoaib Malik be fined Rupees Two million. They should not be part of national team in any format for a period of one year.”


While I appreciate that the PCB is finally taking some strict action, banning the two world class players of your team won’t help at all. Who is going to fill in the huge middle order gap left by Inazamam and now by Yousuf and Younis ? Mohammad Yousuf and Younis Khan had been the backbone of our middle order since long, banning them permanently from playing for the national team cannot be justified.

I urge the PCB to review its decision, otherwise expect the two Y’s of Pakistan to approach the Supreme Court for justice.
