Pakistan batsman Younis Khan has revealed that the national team are in no mood to play the fourth ODI against New Zealand in Abu Dhabi following the Peshawar school massacre.
At the end of the gruesome attack, which was carried out by Taliban militants, 132 children and nine staff were killed, while another 125 were wounded.
“It is a national tragedy and a barbaric act. Playing the match is going to be very difficult,” Younus told Geo Super television. “How do you play a match when your spirit is not in the game? That is our state of mind right now.
“When Phil Hughes died it shocked every one of us and we postponed a day’s play in the Test match against New Zealand. It would not be a bad idea to postpone this game as well.”
It has also been announced that the players will observe a minute’s silence and wear black armbands during the fourth ODI.
