Lahore: Younis Khan has refused to lead Pakistan in the Champions Trophy just two days before the team was due to fly to India. He was appointed captain late last month after the ICC slapped a four-match ban on captain Inzamam-ul-Haq at the hearing for The Oval controversy

"I don't want to be a dummy captain and the reason why I have refused the captaincy will be revealed afterward," Younis told reporters at a press conference in Lahore with coach Bob Woolmer. Younis was scheduled to hold a full press conference ahead of the team's departure for Jaipur on Saturday but instead he turned up, uttered one sentence and left.

"Younis has not told us any reason and we are in negotiations with him," the sources in PCB revealed. "As soon as we get any details we will reveal them to the media."

The PCB was holding an emergency briefing at its headquarters in Lahore between chairman Shaharyar Khan and other officials.
