Yousuf and Younus AREN’T banned for life

Even by Pakistan’s standards this must be some kind of a record.

After claiming to be on very firm ground with the punishments they’d doled out, the Pakistan Cricket Board has now said that actually what may have sounded like a life ban was no such thing. Mohammad Yousuf and Younus Khan are actually eligible for selection “as and when the PCB deems appropriate” – which will hopefully be in time for their next match.

Maybe they never meant it. Maybe they were misunderstood. Maybe their new coach, Waqar Younis, has thrown a fit. Maybe it’s all a big post-modern joke at the media’s expense.

Whatever it is, Rana Naved still doesn’t know what he’s done to get banned for a year.

    ‘Days’ plural?

    That’s optimism.

  3. Naved!? He was the worst of the lot. Can’t believe he’s got away with it for so long.

  4. It’s all quite simple really. I expect Mohammed Yousuf to change his name back to Yousuf Yohana, and bag a spot in the line up again, claiming he is a different man altogether.

  5. Or Cat Stevens, perhaps.

    What do you mean, they’re not the same person?

  6. Rumour has it that Waqar Younis has been replaced by Intikab Alum.

    Yousuf Islam has been replaced by Bob Woolmer.

    Rana Naved has been replaced by Sarfraz Nawaz.

    And the FBI are on the trail of Asif Mahsood, for obvious reasons.

    It’s all starting to make sense to me now.

  7. If only they hadn’t let East Pakistan slip through their fingers…

  8. They were even considering banning Miandad and Imran Khan for breaking team unity but somebody told Ejaj “The BUTT” that they have retired just before the scheduled press conference.

  9. Hi I am from Bangladesh. “Yousuf and Younus AREN’T banned for life” that news is really a painful news. both of them r great cricketer & I respect them. really that is a painful ending of their cricket life. Sorry Pakistan cricket team.
