LONDON: An event was organized at the Home of Cricket, Lords, to honour Pakistan’s retiring legend Younis Khan. All the Pakistani cricketers were present there.
Current and former Pakistani cricketers shared their fond memories of the legend. Former captain Shoaib Malik also took the microphone to say something about Younis Khan.
Shoaib Malik recalled some funny moments that he enjoyed with the veteran batsman.
Malik praised Younis Khan that he has always played his heart out for the team and he will surely miss his refreshing smile.
“(He) always gives 100% and not a pounce less ever. I will miss that larger than life smile along with that laid back posture while chewing gum and throwing stones at me from second slip” he said with a laughter.
Younis Khan is the first Pakistani batsman to score 10,000 runs, he is not only good at batting, but he can also fix batting tools.
“He is a cricketer who can fix bats, pads or gloves,” said Shoaib Malik. “I have seen all the stuff in his bag, if I needed anything he is the only person to whom I can go up to,” he added.
Younis Khan retired after a magnificent career as Pakistan’s most successful Test batsman.
