Karachi: Former Pakistan captain Mohammad Yousuf said his appetite for cricket and runs has not diminished with age and he is confident of doing well during the upcoming national T20 championship here. Yousuf, who has been ignored by the national selectors and cricket board since he last played in November, 2010 against South Africa, said he was delighted to make a comeback to domestic cricket by appearing in the national T20 event.
Yousuf missed playing in the President's Trophy first class tournament for which he had applied to the board.
"Missing out on the President's Trophy was disappointing but these things happen and there is no point in worrying about that. It would have been good to play some 4 day cricket but it wasn't meant to be and there is nothing I can do about it. As far as my appetite for top class cricket is concerned it has never diminished. I still want to play cricket at the highest level, as much as I always have wanted to," said Yousuf, who would lead the Lahore Lions.
"As far as a return to international cricket is concerned ahead of the series in India and then South Africa, I'm not even thinking about it. That is down to the selectors, the most important thing is to get some domestic cricket under my belt and make some runs. The rest is out of my hands," he said.
