Lahore, Sep 19 (UNI) After constantly being overlooked for Pakistan's Twenty20 side, veteran batsman Mohammad Yousuf has questioned his omission from the team after he was left out of the next month's four-nation tournament in Toronto.

Yousuf a veteran of 79 Tests and 269 ODIs, said he was fit enough to play any form of the game the proof of which can be taken from any former captain.

''You go and ask great players like Wasim Akram and Inzamam-ul-Haq if I don't deserve to play Twenty20 cricket.

If they say I should be dropped then I will quit all cricket,'' Yousuf told the 'The News' today.

''I just don't understand what criteria there is for selecting the Twenty20 players,'' he said and added that he was the best batsman in Pakstan at the moment.

A Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) spokesman, Mansoor said Yousuf's comments were unwarranted and the selectors are good enough to judge that who is best.

''He is a great batsman no doubt about it, but his criticism is unwarranted and the selectors know what is best for the team,'' he said.

Meanwhile, the 34-year-old Yousuf has been hiven the command of one of the teams in the domestic Twenty20 championship which begins from October 4.
