Younus Khan to talk to PCB

6:16 am on 15 October 2009

Younus Khan will discuss his future with the Pakistan Cricket Board after tendering his resignation as captain over match-fixing allegations.

He offered to go after Jamshed Dasti, National Assembly committee chairman, alleged the team deliberately under-performed at the ICC Champions Trophy.

Younus says he's going to meet with the chairman of the board this week and will discuss his future frankly with him.

Younus made his decision to quit after Dasti, the chief of the National Assembly standing committee on sports, said he would investigate reports that Pakistan had deliberately under-performed in their games against Australia and New Zealand - although the committee cleared the team of any match-fixing charges.

Having already booked their place in the last four before losing to Australia in their final group game, Pakistan lost to New Zealand in the semi-finals.

Dasti later claimed his remarks had been misunderstood and that he had never intended to suggest match-fixing by players.
