Finger Injury Rules Younus Out Of Pakistan Opener

Post by Sparchi » Tue Sep 22, 2009 9:49 pm

Pakistan captain Younus Khan will miss Pakistan's opening ICC Champions Trophy match against the West Indies tomorrow (Wednesday) but should be fit for Saturday's clash with India.

Coach Intikhab Alam revealed that although Younus fractured a finger fielding in Pakistan's warm-up match against the Chevrolet Warriors, he will do everything in his power to play in the match against India.

"Younis' injury is not life threatening," the coach told a press conference. "It's not that serious at all and he will probably play against India. He is strong and tough and can play with painkillers. He won't want to miss the match."

Shahid Afridi will act as captain in Younus' absence in a match that Pakistan are expected to win against an under-strength West Indian side.

Pakistan's batting too has shown promise and the middle-order comprising former captain Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Yousuf has ensured stability in the run flow.
