Veteran Pakistan batsman Yousis Khan expressed his view and desire to play for Pakistan in One Day International during a television interview after Pakistan won the first test match against Zimbabwe at Harare on Saturday.
Younis stated that he has not retired from ODI and wants to contribute for his country in shorter version of the game. “I have not retired from ODI. I want to play this form of game from my country. But I am sad to say that selectors are not giving me the opportunity to play in this version of game,” Younis told.
Younis who once had led Pakistan was ignored by selectors for the Champions Trophy. He was also not a part of team during ODI series against West Indies and Zimbabwe.
Younis who was awarded the man of the match for his unbeaten double hundred against host nation Zimbabwe in the first says he is not giving up for his chance to play for Pakistan in limited over games and feels that he can still play. “I am not giving up right now. I know I can play in shorter version too. When chance will come I am ready to grab the opportunity,” said Former skipper.
Younis returned to the Pakistani side after being sidelined since the South Africa tour early this year.
