Pakistan drop 'out-of-form' Younis Khan from Champions Trophy squad

Islamabad, Apr. 1 (ANI): Pakistan has dropped out-of-form Younis Khan from a 30-man initial squad for the eight-nation Champions Trophy.

The move comes after the middle order batsman failed to perform in recent one-day matches.

The 35-year-old Younis managed to score just 116 runs in the series against South Africa earlier this month, which Pakistan lost 3-2 and has not managed to score a century since November 2008.

According to sports24, Pakistan is in group B of the event to be held in England from June 3 to 23. The other teams in their group are arch-rivals India, the West Indies and South Africa.

Defending champions Australia, New Zealand, Sri Lanka and England form group A.

All teams had April 6 as the cut-off date to announce their initial squad to be trimmed to 15 in May. (ANI)
