PESHAWAR, 11 November: Pakistan’s ace middle order batsman Younas Khan announced retirement from One Day International cricket and Wednesday’s fixer between Pakistan and England at Abu Dhabi will be the last match of his ODI career.
Announcing his retirement from the limited overs format, Pakistan’s top test scorer said he made his mind after detailed consultation with his friends and family members. Younas was included in ODI team by the selection committee after his good performance in Test matches against England recently but the team management had reportedly raised eyebrows over his induction, which marked his inclusion as controversial. Earlier, he was dropped from the national ODI squad due to his poor performance in the 2015 World Cup.
Before the Abu Dhabi ODI, Younas has represented Pakistan in 264 matches and has scored 7240 runs, which includes seven centuries and 48 half centuries.
