Younus pleads against ban
Younus Khan Thursday challenged Pakistan Cricket Board's (PCB) decision to ban him indefinitely.
Younus, a former captain, has filed a plea against the ban, handed down by the PCB earlier this month in the aftermath of Pakistan's disastrous tour of Australia, sources said.
Sources said Younus's lawyer Ahmed Qayyum is confident the senior batsman will get a reprieve following his appeal against the ban.
Also, Qayyum, who is son of Pakistan's former attorney general justice (retd) Malik Qayyum, has asked the board to furnish evidence that Younus was responsible for any wrongdoings during the tour of Australia.
Younus was one of the seven leading cricketers banned or fined by the PCB, which said it was acting on recommendations from a probe committee that investigated into the causes behind Pakistan's poor performance against Australia.
Younus and another former captain Mohammad Yousuf were banned indefinitely for 'infighting' while Shoaib Malik and Navedul Hasan were banned for one year.
