Karachi: Senior batsman Younis Khan on Saturday withdrew from the ODI series against Bangladesh three days after he fumed over ICC’s Anti-Corruption and Security Unit official quizzing him over Pakistan team’s alleged link with an Indian bookie.

Though PCB said Younis was rested to induct young blood in the team, sources close to him said his withdrawal was linked to his questioning by the ACSU official Alan Peacock.

Younis, who had refused to play in the series after Peacock questioned him only to change his mind after intervention by PCB chairman Nasim Ashraf and chief selector Salahuddin Ahmed, has informed the selectors that he wanted to rest as he was not in a proper frame of mind for international cricket. — PTI
