Salman Butt has insisted captaining a young Pakistan side shouldn't be “that much of a hassle” when he leads the team in the second Test against Australia in Leeds at Headingley.

Former vice-captain Butt takes over a team without former captains and senior batsmen Mohammad Yousuf and Younus Khan.

However, Butt, publicly berated by then captain Yousuf after running the senior batsmen out during the third Test against Australia in Hobart in January, told reporters here on Tuesday: “All my life, from teenage cricket up to this level I have been captain throughout.

“I think I should enjoy it. It's a challenge...It's a young unit, it shouldn't be that much of a hassle.”
