Mohammad Yousuf not to be considered for India tour due to fitness issue

Islamabad, Thu, 06 Dec 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Dec. 6 (ANI): In what appears to be a major setback for Mohammad Yousuf's Twenty20 and ODI career, Pakistan's chief selector Iqbal Qasim has made it clear that the senior batsman would not be considered for the tour of India due to his poor form.

"Yousuf is not under consideration for the tour to India. We are not sure about his form and fitness right now and he will not be considered for the Indian tour," the Daily Times quoted Qasim, as saying.

Yousuf has not played any first-class cricket since mid last year and was recently named to lead the Lahore Lions side in the ongoing National T20 Championship. But before the first match, Yousuf pulled out of captaincy in favour of Pakistan's T20 captain Mohammad Hafeez and after the first game for Lahore, has not played in the next two matches.

Qasim said the best T20 and ODI squads would be announced for the Indian tour, which was very important for the national team.

"We have two tough tours coming up and we need to do well in India as we have the gruelling tour of South Africa ahead of us. Definitely we are looking at the fast bowling resources available to us for both tours," he stated. (ANI)
