Yusuf insists that he has worked on all aspects of his game since being out of favour from the national side. “I have been working on my bowling for quite sometime now and the results are certainly showing. Not only on my bowling, I have worked tirelessly on every aspect of my game, whether it is batting or fielding,” he said. Having played 57 ODIs and 22 T20s for the national side, Yusuf feels at home with the limited-overs format, but is not averse to trying his luck in Test matches as well. “Look, I have played ODIs and T20s, so obviously I think more about ODIs and T20s. I have not played Test matches, so cant say much about them. But its not that I dont wish to play Tests. I have done well in the four-day Ranji matches and will certainly look to play these, but yes, for the moment I am enjoying my limited-overs cricket,” he said. Cricket apart, Yusuf and Irfan are also seen donning many hats but the older brother feels that its family that keeps the two occupied off the field. “The Cricket Academy of Pathans (CAP) is being looked after by the coaches that we have, so that doesnt really keep us busy. Either its cricket that takes our time or its family that we are surrounded with,” he concluded. PTI FK PM BSadvertisementlast_img
