 Bats: Right Hand Bat

One of the few Christians to play for Pakistan, Youhana has quickly established himself as a gutsy and fluent middle-order batsman.

The 28-year-old is a consistent performer in both forms of the game, gaining his runs through orthodox, composed strokeplay.

Kaka, as he is known, made his international debut against Zimbabwe in 1997/98 season and it is fitting that he recently returned there at the peak of his powers.

In November, he scored his best one-day score of 141 not out against the African nation, one of five centuries in 2002 alone.

The right-hander now boasts an impressive one-day average in excess of 40 after scoring more than 1,000 runs in the last 12 months and will be vital to Pakistan's hopes for success.
