Kingston (Staff Report): Pakistani Test cricketer and former captain of the Pakistan national cricket team Younis Khan on Sunday has turned down rumours which hinted he could take back his retirement decision and continue to play for Pakistan for another few years.
Younis confirmed in a video statement that his decision to retire from international cricket after the Test series against West Indies was final.
“There is a lot of speculation that perhaps I am taking back my decision to retire from Test cricket. There is no truth to this. My decision to retire from Test cricket is final,” he said.
Younis Khan is the only Pakistani player to score over 10,000 Test runs and first test cricketer to have scored a century in all 11 countries to have hosted test matches. He is also the third Pakistani player to score 300 or more runs in an innings.
Younis said, stressing that there was no need for any ‘conspiracy theories’, “I will not take back my retirement even if I score a century in every innings during the West Indies series.”
Younis further asked the fans to pray for Pakistan’s victory against the West Indies.
He is part of the Test squad that is set to play against West Indies.
