Younus Khan named vice-captain for Indian tour

Wednesday, October 31, 2007

LAHORE: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PBC) has appointed top-order batsman Younus Khan vice-captain of the recently announced Pakistan team for the tour of India.

Younus Khan will be the third player to assume the charge as the deputy of captain Shoaib Malik.

Earlier, the PCB appointed fast bowler Muhammad Asif the vice-captain for the series in Abu Dhabi and after that made opening batsman Salman Butt the vice-captain for the home series against South Africa but due to lack of form he was not only dropped from the team but also stripped of the vice-captaincy.

Younus Khan, who twice refused to become captain of the national team, has now been appointed vice captain for the series of five One-day-Internationals and three Test matches in India.

The national team will leave tomorrow for India.
