Pakistan's senior cricketers Mohammad Yousuf and Abdul Razzaq said that there was no greater pride than playing for the country.The duo welcomed the announcement by PCB that they can play for the national team again. PCB cleared both the former players on Friday to play for the national team again and they are expected to make the squad for the Test tour of Sri Lanka from June 27.
The PCB said they would be considered for the national team again because the Indian Cricket League had accepted their resignations and they were free to play for any other team now.
Yousuf said he has spoken to skipper Younis Khan and now was looking forward to playing for Pakistan again. Right-arm medium pacer and all-rounder Razzaq said that he was relieved about the ICL matter having been resolved. Razzaq said his aim was to get into the Pakistan team for all forms of the game including T20 cricket.
