Islamabad, Jun.3 (ANI): Ruling out any compromise with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) over the 'indefinite' ban imposed on Younis Khan, the former skipper's counsel has said that his client would not accept anything less than a complete removal of the punishment.

Ahmed Qayyum said that Younis is adamant that he has nothing wrong, so the PCB must lift the ban and also revoke the two million rupee fine imposed on him following the recommendations of an enquiry committee which probed Pakistan's lacklustre performance during the winless Australia tour.

"Younis is in no mood to compromise his stance and he is not willing to accept a reduction in punishment from the PCB, as other players have done. Younis will not accept any fine at all, he is adamant that he is innocent as there is no evidence against him," Qayyum told PakPassion.net.

Though banned, Younis has been included in the list of 35 probables for the upcoming Asia Cup and the subsequent tour of England, but his future hinges on the outcome of the hearing on his petition challenging the sanctions imposed on him.

The PCB's appellate tribunal is due hear Younis' case on Saturday. (ANI)
