Cricket: Shed a tear for Younus Khan

Nothing is going right for the Pakistan cricket team captain Younus Khan.
 
Not only, has his own batting performance faltered ( Younus has scored only two half-centuries in his last 19 ODIs.) he has also managed to lose two ODI series since the euphoric ICC Twenty20 World Cup.
 
On top of that Shahid Afridi has made some astute moves.
 
He has started batting more responsibly and has also made the right noises, including asking Younus Khan to reconsider his decision to retire from the Twenty20 form of the game.
 
Younus Khan has unwittingly agreed to reconsider it and has set off a furore over his decision.
 
The factions which were already against him have not only lambasted him for the decision but have also been keenly asking for Shahid Afridi to be appointed captain of the Pakistan cricket team.
 
Now that former Pakistani players have also called for his sacking it looks as if Younus has to do something exceptional to not only retain his captaincy but also his place in Pakistan cricket squad.
