LAHORE Pakistan captain Younus Khan on Wednesday asked the teammates to approach him to discuss the problems and issues they feel are hampering the progress of the team. He was commenting of Shahid Afridis statement that some of the players have approached him for to redress their problems and he (Afridi) played the role to bridge the gap between the players and the captain. I personally think that players should have the courage to fight for their rights and discuss their issues openly with the captain and management, Younus made these comments on a sports show. Younus refused to agree that he was responsible for the communication gap in the team that has been highlighted a great deal by Afridi in recent days. I dont think I am responsible for this if there is any communication gap between the players it is because of the weak team management, he said. Yes, some players did go and complain about me to the Chairman of the board. I consider them weak people because if they had any problems they should have come to me and talked to, Younus said in TV programme. Younus admitted that captaining Pakistan is not an easy job and carried lot of stress and tension. I remember Shoaib Malik as captain used to smoke all the time, Younus said on the show. It is indeed very stressful. Younus dismissed allegations that he was not good at communicating with his teammates. That is not true I have always remained a private person but as captain I have attempted to communicate with everyone. After we beat India in the Champions Trophy, I arranged an outing for everyone but some of the players didnt show up even as I kept waiting outside the hotel, he recalled. The PCB changed the management of the national team for the coming series against New Zealand by dropping manager Yawar Saeed and his assistant Shafqat Rana whom Younus has blamed for the problems in the team. Younus claimed some players of the team had complained to the PCB against him, which was the other reason apart from match-fixing allegations that prompted him to resign from the post before being persuaded by the Board to stay on.
