Younis Khan retirement

KARACHi: Legendary batsman and Pakistan’s highest run scorer in TEST Cricket Younis Khan, announces retirement from international cricket on Saturday.

“I will be retiring from international cricket after the West Indies series with my head high,” said Younis in a press conference recently held in Karachi. He also added that he had been under a lot of pressure from friends and family not to retire, but that he thought it was the best moment in his life to make that decision.

“I was under a lot of pressure, getting calls from everyone. I think this is the right time as every sportsman has to take this decision in his career.”

Younis Khan has played 115 matches in his TEST career and has scored a total of 9,977 runs at an average of 53.06. He hit his highest score of 313 against Sri Lanka in 2009. Younis is only 23 runs short to reach his 10,000 run-mark in Test Cricket. He is part of the squad for the upcoming West Indies series, and will In Sh Allah complete his 10k runs right before retirement. What a perfect time to retire isn’t it…

“I hope I will be supported so I can complete 10,000 runs before I retire”, he said.
