Younis ready to bat anywhere for Pakistan
ISLAMABAD (APP) - Pakistan's senior batsman Younis Khan, who has been struggling to retain his place in the ODI playing XI, has said he was ready to bat anywhere in the line-up as he wanted to do well for Pakistan team in the ongoing ICC cricket World Cup.

"I am always ready to bat anywhere for Pakistan because I want to perform all the time," Younis said in Adelaide.

Younis was sent as the makeshift opener against India in Pakistan's World Cup opening match but he failed miserably. In the second game against the West Indies, he scored a duck coming in at No. 3 position.

He was subsequently dropped for the next two matches, Zee News reported. "The sort of person I am everyone knows and I left the captaincy myself in the past. But as a person and human being you learn every day and now I know how big an honour it is to lead your team, perform and take your team somewhere.

Younis admitted it was a frustrating experience for him. Younis said that Pakistan's batting needed to improve to compete with big teams.
He made it clear that Pakistan were not going to take Ireland lightly in their last league match, to be played on Sunday.

"It is a crucial match for us as you never know what will happen in the points table. Ireland are a side capable of causing an upset. So we are going to take this match very seriously."
