LAHORE: Pakistan veteran batsman Younus Khan lost his temper and got involved in a heated argument with umpire Rashid Riaz and required the intervention of leg-spinner Yasir Shah to settle the matter during a practice match at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.
Younus, who is famous for his short temper, was not happy with Riaz's decision of adjudging him out off left-arm spinner Khalid Usman claiming that the ball hit his hand and went over to plead his case in a not-so-friendly manner.
Younus Khan says he is not the greatest Pakistani batsman
Sensing that the matter could spiral out of control, Shah, along with the other umpire on the field, intervened to separate the two as the match continued afterwards.
While talking to the media, the leggie refused to comment on the incident, and called it a normal proceeding during a cricket match.
Younus was also involved in another incident of heated verbal exchanges with the same umpire last year during the Pakistan Cup in Faisalabad.
The 40-year-old was suspended following the incident by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), and was later reinstated after he apologised to Riaz.
