Younis Khan quits Pakistan cup

Lahore: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa captain Younis Khan quit from the ongoing Pakistan Cup yesterday, protesting against the 'substandard umpiring' in the tournament.
According to Dawn, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa manager Mukhtiar Hussain said that Ahmed Shehzad would take over the reins from Younis.
After Khyber Pakhtunkhwa's loss to Islamabad, Younis was exceedingly critical of the umpires and despite his side's loss by two runs on Friday, the veteran Pakistan star expressed his displeasure with the match officials.
Things boiled even further when Younis was fined 50 per cent of his match fee for his comments about the umpiring in the Pakistan Cup.
Younis had a verbal exchange with Rashid Riaz, the reserve umpire. Riaz then complained to Azizur Rehman, the match referee, who fined the captain.
