The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said Tuesday it had replaced Shoaib Malik with Younus Khan as captain of the national cricket team. Malik led Pakistan to their worst one-day defeat -- by 234 runs -- in the third and final one-day in Lahore on Saturday which gave Sri Lanka a 2-1 series win. "Malik has accepted to step down after the Sri Lanka defeat and we have appointed Younus Khan as the new captain for an indefinite period," Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Ijaz Butt told reporters.
