Meanwhile, everything seems alright between Younus and Shahid Afridi, who was named the next Twenty20 captain with both claiming that there was no rift within the team.
After Younus briefly quit captaincy, a section of Pakistan cricket did not want him back and lobbied to get Afridi selected for the captain's post. Pakistan Cricket Board, however, brought back Younus and made him captain till 2011 World Cup, much to the chagrin of the Afridi-camp. Afridi himself, however, claimed he had no issues with Younus.
'Believe me, they are no major rifts in the team at all. But like every team they are minor issues that be can resolved through proper communication levels' Afridi said.
He said nothing was more important then performing for the team and country. 'We are what we are because of Pakistan and the love and affection the people and fans give us and we need to pay them
back properly' he said.
Younus also claimed he held no grudge against anyone in the team and he was not seeking revenge either.
'I get along well with everyone and returning as captain I feel there is greater responsibility on all of us to perform consistently well and give 100 percent for the team,' Younus said.
Younus said he had resigned because of the pressures that came with the match-fixing allegations made by the Chairman of the National Assembly standing committee on sports Jamshed Dasti after the team lost in the Champions Trophy semifinal to New Zealand.
'It is very difficult for the players to go and appear before the standing committee because we are sportsmen and our job is focus on doing well on the field,' Younus said
