Younis Khan uncertain for New Zealand series

     Pakistan cricket captain Younis Khan is uncertain about playing in the series against New Zealand starting next month in Abu Dhabi. Pakistan Cricket Board's (PCB) Chief Operating Officer (COO) Wasim Bari told mediapersons that Khan would soon meet board chairman Ijaz Butt and brief him about his finger injury that he sustained just before the ICC Champions Trophy. "Younis knows best about his injury.He would be meeting us next week after which it will be decided whether he would be playing in the series against new Zealand," The News quoted Bari, as saying. Pakistan will be playing three One-day Internationals and two Twenty20 matches in the series. Khan played three matches in the Champions Trophy matches despite suffering the injury. Unconfirmed reports said that the PCB has decided to sack Khan from captaincy of the national squad and appoint vice-captain Shahid Afridi to the post. Bari,however, has rejected the speculations. Younis Khan's captaincy came under attack from various quarters following the loss against New Zealand in the Champions trophy semi-final. The loss against the Kiwis also sparked off a match-fixing controversy where both captain and coach Intikhab Alam were accused of losing the matches against Australia and New Zealand in the elite eight-nation tournament 'deliberately'.
