Younis Khan vows to continue promoting cricket


KARACHI: Former test cricketer Younis Khan was welcomed by a crowd of people when he reached Jinnah International Airport in the city on Monday.
While talking to the media upon his arrival, Younis said his retirement did not mean he will leave the sport. “I will continue to promote cricket,” he said.
Before Karachi, Younis was in Lahore after returning from the United Kingdom.
At Lord’s Cricket Ground in London, Younis was honoured in recognition of his remarkable career.
While talking about the cricket star, head coach Mickey Arthur had said the work ethic and the way Younis goes about his business was fantastic.
“It has been a privilege and an honour to work with a player like Younis Khan,” the coach said.
ODI and T20I captain Sarfraz Ahmed had said Younis deserved all the applause.
“I have played with him in the last couple of years. He has been a thorough professional”, he added.
The recently concluded three-match series against West Indies saw the end of Younis’ international career. He bid adieu to his career with 10,099 runs – the most by any Pakistan player in the history of Test cricket.
