Lahore, Apr 17 (UNI) Middle order batsman Younis Khan will be available for the last One-Day International of the ongoing series against Bangladesh to be held in Karachi tommorrow.

According to media sources, Younis had contacted chief selector Salahuddin Ahmed, making himself available for the final ODI, after missing the third and fourth matches due to personal reasons.

The prolific batsman's sudden withdrawal from the series triggered controversies as many believe he took the decision as a protest after being questioned by the ICC chief security officer Allan Peacock last week.

Sources, however, said Younis was not angry for being interrogated, but was annoyed after the news was leaked to the media.

Younis along with pace bowler Umar Gul and leg-spinner Danish Kaneria and a Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) official, were grilled by the ICC security official regarding alleged acceptance of precious gifts from an Indian citizen during the last tour of India.

As Younis had been relieved after the second match in Faisalabad, Gul's omission from the third ODI gave an impression that both the players were angry over the inquiry.
