T20 is killing cricket in Pak, fears Yousuf

Yousuf feels ever since the introduction of the slam-bang format, in which Pakistan are the reigning world champions, batsmen seem to have forgotten the virtue of patience in the longer formats of the game.

“Batting failures used to happen before but now because of Twenty20 cricket, no player knows how to stay at the wicket anymore,” Yousuf said.

“Batsmen are finding it very difficult. I know the format has money, players get it and boards do but if Pakistan hypes up Twenty20 too much, Test and ODI cricket will really go down,” he told a cricket website.
