Younis Khan retires from Twenty20
After leading Pakistan to World Twenty20 title Sunday, Younis Khan dropped a bombshell when he announced his retirement from the shortest version of the game.
”I am already 34 and probably too old for this kind of cricket,” said the senior batsman who was Pakistan’s most prolific run-getter in the tournament.
”Today I have decided to retire from Twenty20 cricket,” said the Pakistan captain, adding that he would like to focus on Test and ODI cricket.
Younis had said before the tournament that he might quit Twenty20 cricket.
He said Pakistan have a number of emerging youngsters like pacer Mohammad Aamer and all-rounder Fawad Alam, who can take the game forward in the country.
”We have a number of talented cricketers who can really excel in this version of the game,” said Younis.
Younis said leading Pakistan to the world title was the proudest moment in his international career. “I’ve always dreamt of winning the World Cup,” he said.
