Batsmen Shoaib Malik and Azhar Ali, and pace bowler Sohail Tanvir have been put on standby in the Pakistan squad for the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup, to be held from February 14 in Australia and New Zealand.
Australian all-rounder Steve Smith has protested that he was trying to unsettle Pakistan batsman Azhar Ali when he copped a rocket from his skipper Michael Clarke for being too friendly in the recent Test series.
Younis Khan is going through one of his best forms of his Test career as he notched up another ton on the first day of the second Test match against Australia in Abu Dhabi. Younis bagged the man-of-the-match in the first Test match after notching two successive centuries against the Aussies. He helped his side gain a memorable 1-0 lead in the two-match series. In Abu Dhabi too, he showed he isn't done yet and is hungry for more.
