Younis Khan will make his return to Pakistan cricket to play in fourth Test

Former Pakistan captain, Younis Khan, is likely to join the national squad for the fourth and final Test match against England at Lord's in London. PCB chairman Ijaz Butt has given his nod to consider Younis Khan in the Pakistan squad. Now, this veteran batsman is waiting for an official announcement from board and selectors in next few days.

The decision of selecting Younis Khan in the tour series against England has come after Mohammad Yousuf, who has included in the third test match.

The involvement of Younis Khan is now heavily depending on the tour selection committee and selectors in Pakistan. If they agree then Younis would fly to England to join the team for the fourth and final test.

Despite having huge pressure from various quarters of not allowing selectors to pick Younis Khan for the England, Butt has cleared the way for his inclusion in the national squad.

Younis Khan was punished a heavy fine and banned for an indefinite period by the PCB following his poor record in the Australia tour early this year. PCB removed his punishment after Younis appealed against the ban in the PCB's appellate tribunal.

To show protest against the punishment, Mohammad Yousuf took retirement from international cricket. PCB allowed Mohammad Yousuf to be selected in the national squad despite his retirement and not to apologize the cricket board.

Younis Khan has good record in England. His inclusion in the nation squad would boost Pakistan team to perform well.
