Younis wants to play in World Cup
Pakistan’s man of the match in the first Test win over Australia in Dubai, Younis Khan, is keen to play in next year’s World Cup despite the national selectors sidelining him for the one-day series against the Australians.

Younis, who scored twin centuries in the Dubai Test, said he was ready to play in the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand if the selectors put faith in him.

‘I just feel the selectors should not take into consideration age, position or colour while selecting teams. No matter what age a batsman is, if he is in form and has match fitness he should be selected to play in ODIs,’ Younis said on Geo Super channel. ‘The idea should be to play the players in form.
Age should not be a bar. If any player can serve Pakistan cricket he should be considered for selection. It is about playing the right combination,’ Younis said.

Younis, who has become the highest Test century-maker for Pakistan with 26 hundreds after the Dubai Test, said he was ready to play even in ODIs. ‘Playing for Pakistan has been the biggest high for me and I have not given up hope of playing in the WC. I will just try to carry on my form,’ he said.
