New Delhi:

Pakistan cricket can now boast of having three different captains for the three formats of the game as they appointed Mohd Yousuf as their Test skipper for the New Zealand series.

Mohammad Yousuf will captain Pakistan's Test side, while Younus Khan and Shahid Afridi will lead one-day and T20 teams respectively.

According to the Pakistan media reports, Yousuf has been handed the responsibility just for one series as Younis wanted rest.

Wicketkeeper Kamran Akmal has been named the vice-captain for the Test series.

However, other sources suggest that there is discontent brewing in cricketing circles with regard to Younus' performance as captain as well as his decision to drop Mohd Yousuf and Shoaib Malik for the last ODI against New Zealand that cost them the series.

Many former cricketers slammed his captaincy and asked for his replacement.
