Younis Khan Biography

Mohammad Younus Khan is a Pakistani cricketer and former captain of the Pakistan national cricket team. A test average of over 50, a triple hundred, a famous double hundred against India and a 3-0 whitewash victory over England are but a few feathers in his hat. Widely considered as one of Pakistan's batting greats, he produces results in the face of steepest odds. Younis made his international debut in an ODI against Sri Lanka in 2000, and has since played over 150 ODIs for Pakistan. Along with being an accomplished batsman, Younus is also a skilled slip fielder and a very occasional leg-spin bowler. Younus Khan topped the ICC's Test Batting Rankings in February 2009 after an acclaimed innings of 313 in his first test as captain. His ranking score of 880 is the third highest achieved by a Pakistani batsmen. On March 2010, Younis along with another player Mohammad Yousuf, were axed by the Pakistan Cricket Board from playing for Pakistan following reports stating breaches of discipline by inciting divisions within the team. The ban was overturned three months later. Presently, Younus is a key member in the ODI and Test match side.
