Afridi wants `match-winners` Yousuf, Younis, Akhtar for England tour

Karachi: Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi, who may get the captaincy for all three formats of the game, is reportedly making efforts to ensure that he is at the helm of a balanced team that is capable of achieving `respectable results`.

According to reports, after getting `positive signals` from the Pakistan Cricket Board, Afridi has chalked out his priority list and wants to ensure that a few `match-winning players`, who are currently out of the team, are included in the team for the tour of England.

It is believed that Afridi will be pushing for the return of banned for captains Mohammad Yousuf , Younis Khan, and fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar.

"Afridi is aware that Pakistan will need their best batsmen against Australia and England and will throw his weight behind Younis`s inclusion," The Nation quoted a source, as saying.

Pakistan will play two Tests against Australia followed by four Tests against England besides several one-day and Twenty20 games against the two sides during the tour, starting in June.
