Lahore: Pakistan selection committee has reportedly made some major changes in the squad for the ODI series against Australia, starting from January 22.
According to reports, the selectors have also decided to give chance to youngsters after the team"s pathetic performance in the Test series.
It is believed that six players including former captain Younis Khan are set to make the squad along with Shahid Afridi, Fawad Alam, Rao Iftikhar, Khalid Latif and Naved Yasin, while Misbah-ul-Haq, Faisal Iqbal, Danish Kaneria, Mohammad Sami and Khurram Manzoor will return from Australia, according to reports.
Earlier, Pakistan chief selector Iqbal Qasim had said that the selectors will consider Younis for the ODI series.
“We believe that Younus has a definite role in Pakistan team and we would like to see him join the team for the five one-day internationals. We want him to regain his batting confidence," Qasim had said.
Skipper Mohammad Yousuf has also made desperate calls to send the experienced batsman to Australia to bolster the batting line-up, which has failed so far in the tour.
