Karachi: Mohammad Yousuf may be the prolific run-getter for Pakistan in both forms of cricket but coach Geoff Lawson has told the Board that he does not want the senior batsman in the one-day squad because of his poor fielding.

In a recent meeting of PCB Governing Body, Lawson faced some hard questions from some of the members but he stuck to his guns about the future utility of Yousuf and Shahid Afridi. “Lawson said Yousuf should not be in the ODI squad because of his poor fielding while Afridi, despite playing some 300 ODIs, still gets out in the same irresponsible manner,” a PCB source told PTI about the meeting in Lahore.

Lawson had also told the members that there was a feeling within the team that Afridi had a habit of leaking information to the media and was not a consistent performer. — PTI
