Ban on Younus lifted
Quote:<img style="float:right; margin: 0px 0px 0px 10px;" src=""/>Former Pakistan captain Younus Khan has won his appeal against an indefinite ban from international cricket.

The 32-year-old was one of six players punished by the Pakistan Cricket Board in March following an inquiry into the winter tour to Australia.

But in lifting the ban, retired judge Irfan Qadir said Younus had not had a proper chance to defend himself.

He also quashed a fine on current skipper Shahid Afridi and halved fines on brothers Kamran and Umar Akmal.

A one-year ban on another former skipper, Shoaib Malik, was lifted last week and seam bowler Rana Naved-ul-Hasan will appeal against the same penalty on 19 June.

The only player not to challenge the PCB findings was batsman Mohammad Yousuf, who has retired from international cricket.

Younus' lawyer, Ahmed Malik Qayyum, said he was "delighted to get the ban revoked".

He added: "It is a big victory for us as my client didn't back down from his argument that there was no justification for the ban on him
