Islamabad:After their initial hesitation to play in the three-match exhibition series in Houston later this month, Pakistan vice-captain Younis Khan and swashbuckling batsman Shahid Afridi have agreed to take part in the in the series.

This was possible after one of the chief organizers personally went to Jamaica to convince them to play.

The duo will feature in the Asian XI side against the World XI.

It may be mentioned here that both players, who were engaged in an in-famous dressing room squabble during the opening Bridgetown Test, had decided against taking part in the series.

The series which is being organised by Cricket World International (CWI), will be held between June 14 and 19.
