Karachi, Aug 12 (ANI): Pakistan cricket captain Younis Khan refused to talk to journalists gathered at the Karachi International Airport, when he returned home after the Sri Lankan tour on Tuesday.

The Daily Times quoted Younis as saying: "I don't want to make any comments now, we will talk later."

It is believed that Younis was unhappy at the negative media coverage showered on the side during the Sri Lanka tour.

Pakistan was beaten hands down by the Lankans both in the Test and the one-day series.

A source close to Younis said: "He is not happy at the way the media highlight certain negative issues and turn the players into villains from heroes in just a few days time."

"He believes the media needs to be more responsible in their stories as the reports about differences in the team and match-fixing didn't help and upset the players."

Younis is scheduled to meet Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ijaz Butt to dicuss the role of some senior players and will also appear at a sports channel later this week. (ANI)
