LAHORE: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Wednesday allowed Younis Khan to resume playing in Pakistan Cup, a domestic tournament.
Reports said that PCB has accepted Younis Khan’s apology and given permission to him for rejoining Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in Pakistan Cup.
Earlier, Younis Khan called the PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan in response to the show-cause notice given to him. He admitted his misbehaviour during a match in Pakistan Cup at Faisalabad on Monday and apologized.
“Younis Khan made telephonic contact with chairman PCB Shaharyar Khan today,” the PCB said in a statement. “He felt sorry for the incident that happened during the Pakistan Cup in Faisalabad.”
He left the host city, last week, in protest against ‘substandard umpiring’ in the event. Later, the PCB had issued the show cause notice to Younis Khan instead.
PCB chairman Shahryar Khan has accepted that Younus Khan has had great services for Pakistan Cricket, but no one is above the rule and game. (The News)
