Younis Khan's ban lifted
by CricketArchive Staff Reporter


Player:Younis Khan

DateLine: 6th June 2010

 

Former Pakistani skipper Younus Khan won his appeal against an indefinite ban and is now likely to be considered for the national team.

 

"The appeal of Younus against an indefinite ban is accepted and the order (punishment) is set aside," the arbitrator, retired justice Irfan Qadir, said in his order.

 

Younus was one of seven players who were banned or fined in March this year. The penalties were imposed after an inquiry committee investigated on and off-field problems during team's tours to the United Arab Emirates, New Zealand and Australia between November and February.

 

Younus and another former captain Mohammad Yousuf were handed indefinite bans over "infighting in the team which let the team down."

 

The former captain was named in a preliminary squad of 35, subject to his clearance from the arbitrator, but was not selected in the 15-man Asia Cup squad announced on Thursday.

 

He is, however, likely to be considered for team's tour of England to be announced later.
