Former Pak Test captain Yousuf upset over PCB snub
Former Pakistan captain Mohammad Yousuf is reportedly upset for not being permitted by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to feature in the ongoing Presidents Trophy Grade I Tournament.
"On one hand, the PCB tells me to prove my form and fitness in the domestic circuit, however on the other hand they do not allow me to do so. Since 2010 I have not been representing any domestic team. This time around Port Qasim Authority (PQA) offered me a slot which I readily accepted," the Daily Times quoted 38-year-old Yousuf, as saying.
Yousuf was not included in the list provided before the competition to the PCB by all the departments taking part in the President's Cup. As per the rules, a player not appearing in a list cannot be included in any outfit. Yousuf's case required change in the rules hence it needed clearance first from the PCB Cricket Committee and then from the PCB Executive Coordination Committee.
