Younis Khan returned as Pakistan captain, two days after refusing to lead the team for the Champions Trophy in India, Pakistan Cricket Board officials announced on Saturday.
In a strange twist of events, newly-appointed PCB chairman Nasim Ashraf announced Younis and not Mohammad Yousuf would lead Pakistan in the elite tournament. Ashraf took over as PCB chairman after incumbent chairman Shaharyar Khan resigned Friday night.
Younis has been reappointed as captain and we have decided not to take Mushtaq Ahmed as assistant coach for the Trophy, Ashraf said, apparently on advice from Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf, who is also patron of the PCB.
