Days after Mohammad Yousuf passed the fitness test at the NCA, raising speculation that he might make his way back into the team, the PCB has sought an explanation from coach Dav Whatmore as to what prompted him to allow the senior cricketer to appear for the test.

A well-placed source in the PCB confirmed that a senior official had a word with Whatmore after the media and some former players questioned his decision to “support” Yousuf's comeback.

“The official asked Whatmore what was the reason behind allowing Yousuf to train at the National Cricket Academy with the team and also to allow him to take the fitness test that led the media and former players to speculate that the coach was planning to bring back Yousuf into the side,” the source said.
