Zaheer, Moin prefer young blood over veteran Yousuf's return

Karachi, Tue, 01 May 2012 ANI

Karachi, May 1 (ANI): Former Pakistan cricket captains Zaheer Abbas and Moin Khan have said that the national selectors should select young players for the team, instead of recalling senior batsman Mohammad Yousuf for the upcoming Sri Lanka tour.

"The Sri Lanka tour must be used to groom new faces and younger players," the Daily Times quoted Zaheer, as saying.

Zaheer added that Yousuf should not expect direct selection into the national team without proving his match fitness in domestic cricket.

Moin echoed Zaheer's thoughts by saying, "Yousuf is a great batsman, but first he must play domestic cricket, because selecting a player directly is injustice to those who perform well in domestic cricket."

Zaheer said Pakistan should start giving more exposure to younger players. "We need to find and groom players who can serve the national team in any format for the next 10 years. Whatmore is an experienced coach and he and the selectors must take bold decisions," he said. (ANI)
