|Islamabad, May 25 (ANI): Former Pakistan cricket captain Mohammad Yousuf has said he has not given up hope about making a comeback to Test cricket.
"I was expecting a recall at least for the Sri Lanka Tests, but it has not come. I want to complete the milestone of playing 100 Tests. There are so many players still active on the international circuit who have played 100 Tests. I have just played 90. I am not disappointed nor have I given up," the Daily Times quoted Yousuf, as saying.
Yousuf, 37, who has scored 7530 Test runs at an average of 52, has not been picked since his last appearance for Pakistan against South Africa in the UAE in November 2010.
The selectors have insisted that Yousuf should play domestic cricket regularly and prove his form and fitness to warrant consideration for the national team.
Yousuf said he was expecting a recall to the Test side for the Sri Lanka tour as he had spent a lot of time in the nets and undergone a fitness test under the supervision of new coach Dav Whatmore.
"My fitness is good for Test cricket and I have been working very hard on it. My ambition for the sport is still there and that is very important," he said. (ANI)
