Former captain Younis Khans return from obscurity became a reality on Wednesday, after reports emerged that he may replace injured batsman Mohammad Yousuf in the national squad. Younis has been out of the Pakistan squad since last year, after he was indefinitely banned as the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) took disciplinary action against seven players following the teams disastrous tour of Australia. The ban was later lifted but Younis has not been able to play international cricket due to PCB Chairman Ijaz Butts alleged stern stance against the former captain. Butt, however, invited Younis to meet him in a bid to sort out their differences after former cricketers and politicians openly slammed the board chiefs handling of the situation.
