[RxPG] Karachi, April 18 - Former Pakistan captains Imran Khan and Javed Miandad have slammed Younis Khan for refusing to lead the national side, a development that has left Pakistan cricket in further crisis.

Younis was asked by the Pakistan Cricket Board - to take over as captain after Inzamam-ul-Haq stepped down and retired from one-day cricket last month.

But Younis felt the job was too stressful.

'I don't understand it. If he didn't want to be captain he should not have accepted vice-captaincy for the last two years,' Imran was quoted as saying by The News Wednesday. 'His refusal has led to a crisis.'

'It is useless trying to convince Younis to lead the team if he does not want to do it. But what he did was wrong,' said Imran.

The newspaper quoting PCB sources said that all-rounder Shoaib Malik has been tipped to be the next captain following Younis' decision.

Imran, who led Pakistan to their only World Cup triumph in 1992, said he wished Malik the best.

'He appears to have a good cricket brain and could turn out to be a very good choice for Pakistan cricket,' he added.

Miandad also criticised Younis: 'This episode is a reflection on the sort of discipline prevailing in our cricket set-up.

'It is disappointing for me that someone should turn down the honour of being asked to captain his country. It is not a good sign for Pakistan cricket.'
