Younis Khan has joined Misbah-ul-Haq in resigning from world cricket toward the finish of the tour of West Indies in April and May. He reported his choice in Karachi on Saturday, two days after Misbah did in like manner in Lahore, 17-year Test career came to an end.
“People are calling me and requesting that me not make any declaration to leave but rather right now is a right time or best opportunity,” Younis Khan, 39, said in Karachi. “A period comes in each player’s life when he needs to choose and I generally attempted my best to serve my nation with my head high. No player stays fit, the inspiration never continues as before, so this is the time when Younis should leave the field after the coming test series in West Indies.”
The exit off Younis Khan and Misbah after the three Tests in the Caribbean will cost the Pakistan team more than 190 matches worth of experience. Younis heads into the series 23 runs short of turning into the primary Pakistan batsman to score 10,000 runs. Misbah needs 49 for 5000.
“I generally attempted to be a decent ambassador and serve my nation to step forward,” Younis said. “On the off chance that I’ve at any point committed an error in my career, on the off chance that I’ve overlooked something, or accomplished something incorrectly, please consider me one of your own and forgive me.
It is decided the chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq was sharp for both to resign after the West indies visit, permitting them an appropriate goodbye and a chance for Younis to get to 10,000. Inzamam needs to assemble a more youthful side around another Test captain and felt this was an ideal opportunity to do it.
