Younis Khan Retires from ODI


Abu Dhabi: Pakistan’s veteran batsman Younis Khan has announced his retirement from one-day international cricket on Wednesday morning, saying the first day-night game against England here on Wednesday will be his last match.

In a statement issued to the media Younis said that it was never easy for a cricketer to decide when to retire after 15 years in international cricket.
“I am fortunate that I have been able to decide myself when to retire in T20 internationals and ODIs,” Younis said.

The national selectors had, in a surprise move, recalled Younis for the four-match ODI series against England after ignoring him for this format since the World Cup early this year in Australia and New Zealand.

The 37-year-old will be appearing in his 265th one-day international on Wednesday, nearly 16 years after making his debut against Sri Lanka in Karachi in February 2000.
