Younis Khan, who was scheduled to join the Rajasthan Royals after the series against Bangladesh, has decided to stay back in Pakistan due to "personal reasons", according to Darren Berry, the Director of Coaching of the Royals.
"He told us that if we need him, he would fly any time but for now, he has some personal issues to settle and is staying back. We respect his decision."
It was rumoured that Younis, who withdrew from the Pakistan squad after the first two games of the five-match ODI series against Bangladesh, was in an unhappy state of mind and was even thinking about retiring from one-day cricket. Eventually, Younis came back to play the last game of the series.
The reports had suggested that Younis was upset over the manner in which the Pakistan board allowed the officials from ICC's Anti Corruption Unit (ACU) to question him without informing him before the first one-day international in Lahore.
"He does not want to play as he is still upset that the board did not inform him properly that he was going to questioned by an ACU official regarding his friendship with an Indian national on the tour of India six months back," a report in PTI, quoting sources, had said.
