Younis Khan out of fifth ODI

Pakistan vice-captain Younis Khan is out of the fifth one-dayer due to the death of his brother in Germany last week.

The chairman of selectors told media outlet Dawn “Younis doesn’t feel he is in the right frame of mind presently. At the same time we felt it would be an unwise move to ask him to play after this latest bereavement in his family. Our sympathies are with him.”

Inzamam-ul-Haq is still in doubt for the match after injuring his finger and requiring three stitches.

Pakistan lead the series 2-1 with the upcoming match in Karachi being the final match of the series.

Pakistan Squad
Inzamam-ul-Haq (captain), Mohammad Yousuf, Imran Farhat, Mohammad Hafeez, Yasir Hameed, Shahid Afridi, Abdul Razzaq, Kamran Akmal, Rana Naved-ul-Hasan, Umar Gul, Mohammad Sami, Rao Iftikhar, Abdur Rehman, Faisal Iqbal, Shoaib Malik, Danish Kaneria.
