Younis to back for Pakistan T20 team

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan batsman Younis Khan says he will consider playing international twenty20 cricket again. He says "if my fellow players accept me, I will come back" after having retired from the shortest form of cricket follow Pakistan's victory in the Twenty20 World Cup in June.

Younis recently tried to step down from the captaincy of Pakistan's test and one-day teams in protest at match-fixing allegations from the Champions Trophy, but he was persuaded to stay on by the Pakistan Cricket Board. The 31-year-old Younis has played 22 twenty20 internationals, scoring 432 runs at an average of 25.41 with a strike rate of 124.85.
