LAHORE Pakistan captain Younus Khan was impressed by the captaincy and batting of star batsman Mohammad Yousuf who led the Pakistan team to a drawn series against New Zealand in New Zealand. Talking to the journalists here at the National cricket Academy, Younus dispelled the impression that his career is over. I took the coaching course because I have several plans and learnt several things from the course and its wrong to say that my cricket career is over. I have always played for the country and place Pakistan on the highest esteem. I also see Pakistan high in rank and want it likewise, he added. Younus said that if the seniors and the juniors play to their potential they can again become world champions. The team has the ability to beat any top team of the world and if they maintain their focus they will beat even Australia in the coming series, he added. Younus further said that he will be seen in action in the next couple of days. He clarified that although he took a break from International cricket yet he would continue domestic cricket. I was taking rest and I will now play the final of the Quaid Trophy for HBL against Karachi Blues at the National Stadium. He said that the course, he took, would help him in future which would surely beneficial for the country. However, he stayed mum on questions about his captaincy or playing under Yousuf and the selection committees failure to contact him. Meanwhile, Australian cricket team coach Tim Nielsen said that Pakistan cricket team without former captain Younus Khan would have to face difficulties in playing on Australian wickets. Minus Younus Khan, Pakistans batting is fragile enough to be exploited by the Australian attack, Tim Nielsen said before Australias three-Test home series against Pakistan. The tourists have arrived in Hobart for their only warm-up match prior to the three-Test series that starts in Melbourne on Boxing Day. While the Australians are still locked in a battle for the final Test against the West Indies at the WACA ground, Nielsen has cast his eye over their next Test opponents that just played out a 1-1 drawn series in New Zealand. It has emerged that former captain Younus is still a chance to take part in the tour after initially missing his place in the squad and Nielsen said he was needed. Its always hard to replace experienced players whove been to Australia or played all over the world, thats what makes them excellent players, Nielsen told an Australian news agency. When you lose someone whos also had the experience of being the captain and also a leader in their group, it will be challenging for them if we can put them under pressure, for their younger players to have to cope with those things. Its something well try to capitalise on, the fact they may be a little inexperienced at different times in their middle order, but we certainly wont be taking them any lighter because hes not there. By their own admission the Pakistanis are stronger in the bowling department with the likes of Umar Gul, Mohammed Asif and Danish Kaneria forming a deep and varied attack. Their bowling attack with the likes of Asif, Umar Gul and Kaneria who bowled very well for them out here in 2004 and Ajmal who is a fine off-spinner, they have got some quality bowling and maybe they have got a little fragility or inexperience in their top order batting, said Nielsen. One of the hardest things to do coming from the subcontinent is to face the ball that bounces and carries a little more and usually Australian conditions offer us that. The big thing for us will be to make sure if we can identify and find some eaknesses the conditions help us expose, we need to make sure were disciplined enough to keep charging ahead with those things in mind.
