TIME is now ripe for Younis Khan and others like him to retire before they are axed.

Australia and England are in the best shape as they are trying out those who come up to their standard to rule cricket as in the past.

If PTI win elections, maybe we will have a different approach in how we nurture talent, be fair in selection and maintain a good discipline in all sports. We need to change our sports culture and attitudes first.
