Younus Feels Bad By Demoting
Younus Khan Feels Disrespectful By Demoting.Mohammad Younis Khan Middle-order batsman. A Test average of over 50, a triple-hundred, a famous double-hundred against India in India, and a brilliant rearguard partnership to clinch Pakistan’s 3-0 Test whitewash over England, leave no doubt about his quality and class. His greatest captaincy feat – the world Twenty20 championship in England. His nature is to be inward-looking and intensely focused, quietly fighting his way through towards success
Demoting Younus to B category is disrespectful after everything he has done for Pakistan cricket. Even if he has been playing in just one format [Tests] since the past year, he deserved the A category contract because of his seniority and services for Pakistan. Zakir has played two Tests and Akram has played only nine and were under-achievers. How can they take such a decision regarding Younus.The whole selection committee is questionable on such act about younus. Meanwhile, another selector stated that Akram is trying to promote his favourite players, with Umar Amin the prime example after he was inducted late in the training camp. There were critical reservations opposite Amin, though Akram was pulling for his inclusion and now he has got a contract
Senior players said, We feel embarrassed over Younus’ demotion despite being a top performer and the fittest athlete of the [recently concluded] training camp.
More over, PCB announced executive contracts for 22 players of a women’s group with Sana Mir, Bismah Maroof, Nain Abidi, Sadia Yousaf, Nida Rashid, Batool Fatima, Asmavia Iqbal and Javeria Wadood combining a A category, while Nahida Khan, Qanita Jalil and Sumaiya Siddiqui were put in a B tier.
The C difficulty consists of Jaweria Rauf, Sania Iqbal, Marina Iqbal and Sidra Amin while D includes Rabiya Shah, Anum Amin, Iram Javed, Diana Baig, Kanwal Francis, Naila Nazir and Fareeha Mahmood.
Amla, South Africa’s Test Captain
Amla Avails of South Africa’s Test Captain. Hashim Mahomed Amla is South African’s team player played as a top-order batsman.Hashim Amla now appointed as a test match captain of South Africa team after retirement of Graeme Smith.
Amla said, it is an honour and privilege for me to become a captain of team. I pay tribute to Smith and his leadership. He was a great player and leader who lead our team in a very bright and successive way. This honour also brings lot of responsibility on me will try to carry out such responsibilities all my heart to this position. But now I do feel it is time to act, to contribute in a team environment
Smith had captained South Africa in a world-record 109 Tests before announcing his retirement during the third and final Test against Australia last March. He said, “When Graeme retired, it came as a surprise to us, especially with him being a young person but we could also understand because of the pressures of being a captain for so long,”. At that moment, I felt with the group of senior guys we have in the team – myself, AB, Dale, JP, Morne and Faf – that if the team wanted, I would be available.
He said. One thing I have learnt in international sport is that you don’t try to copy anybody; generally you find that the guys who try to copy are not as successful. Amla was reappointed De Villiers’ vice-captain of the ODI team and his first assignment will be to lead South Africa in two Tests in Sri Lanka during July.
But Amla admitted it is not a task he will take on alone. It is always a collective effort. There is no single person who should be taking the credit. Every single person has a huge part to play. I will be picking people’s brains, guys in the team and guys outside the team.
Amla will continue wearing a team shirt without the sponsor’s logo. Castle Lager, a beer company, backs the Test team and CSA chief executive Haroon Lorgat has explained the board will “meet the obligations of its commercial partners through other players.”
