Lahore, Nov.15 (ANI): Annoyed by the frequent change in leadership in the national squad, former Pakistan skipper Inzamam-ul-Haq has asked the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to let Mohammad Yousuf continue as captain for at least a year.

"I think frequent changes in the team management is not a good thing, which is why I would advise the PCB to give Yousuf at least one year as a captain," The News quoted Haq, as saying.

The PCB had appointed middle-order batsman Mohammad Yousuf as the captain of the Test team for the New Zealand series after Younus Khan opted out of the series.

Rejecting reports that he played a big role in getting Yousuf appointed as the captain, Haq said he was appointed on-merit.

"Yousuf is one of the most experienced players and got the captaincy on merit.I keep hearing that I'm the one who is advising him but that's not true. Such reports come up just because Yousuf and many of the other players in the team have played under me," he said.

He also dismissed speculations about being in line to be appointed as Pakistan's coach, saying he is not ready for the job.

"I was never approached for this responsibility and even if I get such an offer, I don't think I'm ready for it," Haq said. (ANI)
