Meanwhile, legendary Pakistan batsman and former International Cricket Council (ICC) president Zaheer Abbas believes the PCB should use Misbah and Younis to help groom talented youngsters.

“Young players can learn a lot from Misbah and Younis and their experience would prove useful to players in many ways,” he told APP.
