Younus-Butt meeting may take place

The crucial meeting between PCB Chief Ejaz Butt and Younus Khan might take place on Thursday to resolve the captaincy issue.

Reliable sources in the Pakistan Cricket Board told PTI that Butt had asked Younus to meet him on Thursday in Lahore.

"Obviously if the meeting is held, its agenda will centre around the decision by Younus to resign as captain," one source said.

He said Butt was also keen to resolve the crisis as soon as possible since there was pressure building on the board from all quarters to convince Younus to withdraw his resignation.

"What is significant and will be interesting to see is how much leverage is Butt willing to give Younus and fulfill his demands, one of which is that he should be announced as captain until the next World Cup," the source said.

Younus is also expected to come clean with the Chairman on a number of issues, one of which is the role played by the team management to undermine his position publicly and to instigate some players to work against him.
