A quick translation of what he said.
What he said
I think Yousuf is taking an emotional decision, but I think he must reconsider his decision because he still has a lot to give to Pakistan cricket.
Yousuf I think has been affected by the recent happenings and is upset with the ban on him, but he is a senior player and he must handle the situation. He must not take an emotional decision.
We have a lot of Test matches coming up in next 10 to 12 months and we need his experience against the top teams like Australia, England, South Africa and New Zealand.
|What he meant |
He'll look like an idiot if he takes it back. I did. Plus he bats really well. Nowhere near as inconsistent as me.
Ban schman. For all you know, he'll be captain tomorrow. Oh no, I have to put this more subtly.
By commenting on Test cricket, I am vying for the post of captain in that form of the sport also. Gimme a shot, selectors.
Anyway, rhetorical question - what's not emotional about Pakistani cricket?
