The day Younus Khan left the team, I knew the future of Pakistani cricket was not going to be bright. Younus has more leadership skill and experience than anyone on the team. He is the main reason Pakistan won the world cup last year. I can say that so surely because he was one of the few captains that actually kept the Pakistani team united [the last one being Imran Khan]. The Pakistani cricket team is always filled with great players. It's just that no matter how great they are, Only a few know how to control their ego. Afridi and Younus are two notable player who can control themselves. Of the remaining, Most of the players on the team are shit heads who think they can lead the team. I'm talking about people like Shoaib mallik; he is supposedly the ringleader of the teammates that have a rift with Younus. Shoaib had a shot at captaincy and he did horrible and got removed, but i guess he's still not over that yet. Younus left the team because he felt like he had no control over the team. He did the right thing; or how else would the Pakistani cricket team realize that it needs Younus more than Younus needs them. Younus got Pakistan gold after 17 years and it's time Pakistan pays some respect to him.
