Younis's indefinate ban lifted

Lahore: Former Pakistan skipper Younis Khan has been shown green light to go ahead and play in the England Tour after winning his appeal against an indefinite ban.

The Pakistan Cricket Board(PCB) has reduced or written off the punishments of four players who the board had only recently found guilty of various misdemeanours in the aftermath of a humiliating, winless Australian tour over the turn of this year. The indefinate ban on Younis Khan was lifted.

He was one of seven players who were banned or fined in March after an investigation into on and off-the-field problems during Pakistan's tours of the United Arab Emirates, New Zealand and Australia between November and February.

Younis along with Mohammad Yousuf was handed indefinate ban after 'reported infighting' within the team.

The call was made by retired judge Irfan Qadir after the latest set of hearings on Saturday morning.Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) legal adviser Talib Rizvi confirmed Younus's appeal had been accepted.

Younis was already included in the preliminary aquad for the Asia Cup and the Test Tour but was not included in the recently announced 15-man squad for the Asia Cup.
