Wisden declared ODI and Test team of the best players of the decade, Cricket Australia did the same
Both Wisden and Cricket Australia did not place any Pakistan player in their teams.
Dainik BhaskarDec 25, 2019, 03:05 PM IST Sports Desk. Wisden Magazine, called the bible of cricket, declared the ODI and Test team of this decade. Cricket Australia also selected the 11 best players of the decade for both formats. The special thing is that overall, no Pakistani player got a place in these four teams. Pakistani cricket fans are very upset with this. Most people have strong reservations about Younis Khan not being elected. Some say it is completely unfair.
Wisden has made it clear that both teams have been selected by cricket experts and that performance is the only basis. However, Pakistani fans are not satisfied with this explanation. He expressed his displeasure through social media and especially Twitter.
Is 10,000 test runs not enough? Former Pakistan captain and middle order batsman Younis Khan scored a total of 10099 runs in 118 Tests at an average of 52.5. These include 34 centuries and 33 half-centuries. Now Pakistani fans are questioning whether Younis was not entitled to a place in Wisden's Test team of the decade even after scoring 10,000 runs at this magnificent average in Test cricket. The resentment is also there for not getting a place for leg-spinner Yasir Shah. He has taken the fastest 200 wickets in Test cricket.
No … Where is Younis Khan in this Test Team … https://t.co/UFH3ShCgsi

Younis Khan should have been automatic choice for the XI by the panel. It only confirms that as a cricketer he was one of the most underrated cricketers to have played in the last 20-30 years. His contribution to cricket in general and Pakistan in particular has been immense !!
