Younis plays Seniors Vs Juniors card

One would have laughed it off if it had been any other team. Since it is the Pakistani cricket team, one finds this rather sad.
Pakistan captain Younis Khan believes the success of youngsters like Fawad Alam and Umar Akmal will pressure the senior batsmen to perform well.
Not very long ago Younis Khan was accused of performing only when his place in the team was at stake. He was also suspected off pulling rank as a senior member of the team.
Hence, one finds it funny that he is the one complaining about uncooperative seniors in the team.
The sad part is Pakistan is now laden with a captain who is unable to unite and motivate the senior members of the team. It is a pity that he is using the juniors to fight his war.
Surely, the Pakistan cricket team is a divided house.

Umm when was that?

"The sad part is Pakistan is now laden with a captain who is unable to unite and motivate the senior members of the team. It is a pity that he is using the juniors to fight his war."

Not true. The seniors are just out of form and were hence dropped. The fact that the juniors have performed means that the seniors position is now in danger, which it never was cause of unworthy replacements. Now that they know that better players are on the horizon they will have to do better or face the axe.

Its quite simple logic, why suggest he's using juniors to fight some war.. there is no war.

"Surely, the Pakistan cricket team is a divided house"

Not true again. All those stories are baseless and utter BS created by externals outside the team pushing their own agendas...

Ott,

Ok I take that and lets say the majority believe the last two points about YK not being able to unite the players and that the Pak team is divided.

But the first point that YK was accused of performing only when his place was at stake, when was that?
