Experienced middle-order batsman Mohammad Yousuf has vowed to silence his critics through his performance during the ICC Champions Trophy.

Yousuf, who is being criticized for his poor show in the Sri Lanka series, said he is working hard on his weak areas and would give his best during the forthcoming eight nation mega event.

Yousuf said he has been suffering from a shoulder problem for last few years due to which his performance has also suffered.

"I always field inside the circle these days because of the shoulder problem. But I'm hoping to get better," The Nation quoted Yousuf, as saying.

Yousuf said he is preparing hard for the Champions Trophy and hoping to give his 100 percent.

"I do my physical training and also some batting, fielding and running practice,"he said.

He denied reports of altercations with captain Younis Khan, saying he has the full support of the captain.

Younis Khan had recently said that Yousuf will take time to adjust to international cricket.

Highlighting that there was a difference between playing in the Indian Cricket League (ICL) and international cricket, Khan said : "Yousuf was out of international cricket for more than a year and will take time to make adjustments. He played in the ICL during that period but let me tell you that there is a world of a difference in the standard of that league and international cricket."
