Men's National Team Captain Kaleemullah was unavailable and someone else should have replaced, the website added. The appearance of Younis Khan was also discussed in the tweet. "Oh and why was Younis Khan there? YK is an avid football fan, he played football before he played cricket and has always offered to help promote football in Pakistan.
