No evidence to prove Younis Khan`s Oz `misconduct` charges: Counsel
Dubai: Former Pakistan cricket captain Younis Khan`s lawyer has said there was no evidence against his client which could prove that his behaviour was not upto the mark during the Australian tour following which he was banned for an indefinite period by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
Mohammed Ahmed Qayyum said he has gone through the PCB`s inquiry committee`s report, which had recommended a ban on both Khan and Mohammed Yousuf, and could find nothing against his client.
"I have seen the documents personally at the PCB headquarters and I found no evidence at all against my client," Qayyum said.
"Younis Khan was not a part of the team on the New Zealand tour and was only a member of the one-day side on the Australia tour," he added.
Qayyum said he would urge the PCB for an open enquiry in Khan`s case, and let the people of the country to see the truth.
"Yes, we shall certainly press for the open hearings and let the world know about his innocence," The Nation quoted Qayyum, as saying.
The second round of hearing, which is being presided over by a former high court judge, Irfan Qadir, is scheduled to take place on Saturday (May 8).
