Younis Khan announces ODI retirement

Younus Khan

The Pakistan batsman Younis Khan will quit one-day international cricket after playing against England in the United Arab Emirates on Wednesday, reports The Guardian.

Khan was recalled for the four-match ODI series for the first time since the Cricket World Cup in March.
In a statement, Khan said: “Today I am retiring from ODI cricket after deliberation with my family, wife, and close friends.”

The 37-year-old temperamental middle-order batsman always insisted he would quit ODIs on his own terms.
He forced the selectors to pick him after becoming Pakistan’s highest Test scorer with 9,116 runs from 104 matches during the 2-0 series victory against England.

Khan has played 264 ODIs since 2000, and scored 7,240 runs, sixth best in Pakistan history, with seven centuries and 48 half centuries.
