    I truely and honestly believe that Younis Khan is a worthless player.

    There are several reasons. First reason is his technical skills. he does not have all the shots a batsmen can play. He only has certain areas of filed where he can play, and that too is poor. He did scored, but his scoring abilities are so limited you never trust an innings on him.

    Secondly, he has never proven himself worthy by playing a completely match winning innings. Can you recall when he hit winning shot solely because of his own efforts or anchored his team out of disaster. He got plenty of oppurtunities to deliver, but did he ever. At least I dont recall. I havent watched his recent performance against SA so I might be missing out on those.

    Thirdly his character. When the team was in a leadership crisis, he tried to cut through senior players to get the captancy, when he was only two years into the team. Fortunately he did not tried it this time to cut Shoib Malik.

    I remember, back in 1994, when I checked the May edition of the cricketer magazine (which contained the one day international records of all players who had played one day cricket in the previous year), I was shocked to see that Jayasuria’s average was less than 20. But we all know today, what a player he is.
    Younis Khan has been performing much more consistently in the last 2-3 years, he is certainly much more capable than his average suggests.
