    Younis refuses to captain

    One can only speculate at the moment .

    My feeling is that some senior pros like Shoaib and Afridi are uncomfortable in playing under Younis.

    Mo it is.

    "We will talk to Younis about his behaviour."

    What "behaviour"? If he doesn't want the job that's up to him ffs

    Looks like that whole "converting to Islam" thing paid off.

    Strange decision for Younis to make tho; for mine he has more about him as a captain than Inzi ever did. Don't think we're getting the full story.

    He captained Pakistan against Australia when he was still Yousuf Youhana.

    I think he had the right stuff to be the best Pakistani captain since Imran.

    I don't think we are getting the full story either, Younis would make a great captain for Pakistan. He is smart and inventive, pro-active rather than re-active and could have made a good fist out of it. Let's hope that this won't hurt his chances when Inzamam retires after the World Cup.

    So Younis IS captaining Pakistan now! Has anyone got an idea what the hell is going on? It's total choas!(par for the course with Pakistan). I could never fathom out the reason that was quoted on Skytext in Britain about being a "dummy" captain - he'd have stood in if Inzy had been injured and not suspended so that didn't make sense.Did someone at the PCB talk some sense into him. PS - with any other team this would wreck their chances but Pakistan must be used to this.

    It's probably all about honour. Or something.
