LAHORE - Welcoming the announcement by the cricket authorities that they can play for the national team again, Pakistan's senior Test players Mohammad Yousuf and Abdul Razzaq have said there was no greater pride than playing for the country. The two players with a combined experience of 125 Tests and 500 One-Day Internationals between them were, on Friday, cleared by the Pakistan Board to play for the national team again and are expected to make the squad for the Test tour of Sri Lanka from June 27. The PCB said they would be considered for the national team again because the Indian Cricket League had accepted their resignations and they were free to play for any other team now. "It is a great relief to be cleared to play for Pakistan again because I have missed the competition that is available while playing for your country," Yousuf said. The senior batsman said he was targeting the tour of Sri Lanka and would start training soon for the series. "I had given my resignation to the Board sometime back and finally the ICL has accepted it," he added. "What happened in the past is now in the past. My experience with the ICL was a short one but there is no greater pride then playing for your country," he said.
