yusuf_pathan_Srinagar: All-rounder Yusuf Pathan today expressed hope that he would return to the national cricket team in the next six months, saying he was working hard to improve his form and fitness.

“Insha Allah (God willing), in the next six months I will be back,” Pathan, who was in a town for the inaugural ceremony of ‘Downtown Champions League (DCL) T20 2013′.

Referring to the selection of Parvez Rasool in the Indian team for the recent Zimbabwe tour, he said, “It is for the management to decide. I am an outsider when not part of the team. It is for the captain and team management (to choose the playing eleven) and I cannot say anything on that. Obviously, he has talent. Otherwise, how could he have reached that level”.

While inaugurating the cricket tournament he congratulated the organizers for providing a platform to youngsters and hoped that a good number of talented youngsters would emerge from such tournaments and play for nation.

As many as 12 teams, owned by various local business houses, will be seen in action during the tournament scheduled to begin next month.
