    I think because he played in the UAE for so long without a away tour his stance was effected, he was crouching a lot. Got to play a lot of matches away, got used to the bounce and adjusted his stance and does not crouch too much now

    YK was never going to leave - and there is no point to drop him after AUS tour is over. He is comfortably better than anyone, may be even current Azhar on Asian turners. If he wants to play, he'll be there on merit - therefore making him Captain is not a bad idea. That'll protect Azhar & allow a younger potential to be groomed. If Azhar struggles with bat for the triple pressure of main batsman, opener & Captain of a struggling side - PAK will lose the WI Series.

    I blame Younis for putting us in this position. We could've realistically ended the day at 280/2.

He has played a part in every series over the past 5-6 years other than the newzealand one and you want him to retire? Yes misbah is done and should retire but younis should play till we have a replacement who can score consistently in all conditions.
    For all those who say he scores in dead rubbers and flat tracks (maybe he does) the point is that atleast he scores, no one else seems to be doing that regulary in our team nowdays. If he retires along with misbah now believe me when i say our team will crumble, just look at srilanka after mahela and sanga retired in quick succession. Everyone scores more in favourable conditions but we dont cry about them do we? Just look at warner(14 of his 17 centuries are in australia but he is the best opener of this era?) Most of kohlis test centuries are either in india or on bating friendly pitches but hes the greatest of all time?

    Finally all i can say is that we should show some respect to our legends because younis is one AND he is our greatest test batsman whether you like it or not. If it wasnt for him we probably would be sitting with srilanka and westindies in test criket terms let alone be world no 1 (which i credit younis more than misbah). Regardless of how bad he was in limited overs games he still won you a world cup too as a captain.

    You hv hit the nail right on its head. There's no way we can afford Misbah and Younis leaving us together. Misbah no doubt is done for all money and if left to him I m sure he wd hang his boots after this series but the babus in pcb want him stay and there's no surprise there as those same babus who are double past their retirement age hv no knowledge and acumen about the game and are only busy filling their pockets and you suggestion of younis khan leading the test team for a year or 2 would never see a day light coz of the people at the helm of affairs in pcb though frankly speaking this is the only option we hv if you don't want to see Azhar as the test captain though I personally think he wdnt be that bad a captain.

    Younis khan now averages 50 in australia , far more than the ATG salman butt in australia.


    It is either a heartache or a headache ..Argh relationships.

    It happens. He is old. He has generally been very good against pace bowling as his record shows.

    Yasir's career average is touching 12, Wahab's 9 - and the sample is not small. Why does Wahab comes ahead of Yasir?

    It was a poor squad, even poorer playing XI selection for this Test - Asghar could have a dream debut on this track.

    The run out was because of Younis?

    End os a great day of Cricket. I saw a part of small history - one player hitting Test hundred in 11 countries. Since IND doesn't play in UAE; this record might last for long, long time.

    The margins between a close series and a proper thrashing are very fine aren't they? Pakistan have handicapped themselves with their selections n tactics.
