Younis says may return to Twenty20

Karachi: Barely four months after quitting Twenty20, Pakistan captain Younis Khan said he might come out of his retirement to play the slam-bang format.

Younis, who announced his Twenty20 retirement after guiding Pakistan to the World Cup triumph in England in June, said he was giving it a thought and would come out of the retirement if he felt the urge to play this format.

"Yes. I have given it some thought," he said.

Meanwhile, everything seems alright between Younis and Shahid Afridi, who was named the next Twenty20 captain with both claiming that there was no rift within the team.

After Younis briefly quit captaincy, a section of Pakistan cricket did not want him back and lobbied to get Afridi selected for the captain's post.

Pakistan Cricket Board, however, brought back Younis and made him captain till 2011 World Cup, much to the chagrin of the Afridi-camp.

Afridi himself, however, claimed he had no issues with Younis.
