I remember my father once told me that you need to elevate your sense of sports in order to understand the game Younis Khan plays, and he was right; I was too young to understand.
Unarguably Younis Khan is the most versatile and reliable batsman Pakistani team has ever been blessed with. Born on 29th Nov, 1977 in Mardan, Pakistan, he jump started his cricket journey back in 2011 with an ODI against Srilanka. Since then he has played more than 150 ODIs and over 100 test matches.
His cricket career is like an Orion’s belt, bright and full of stardust. He is undoubtedly one of the most influential cricketers of all times whose achievements precede his legacy. Another star has been added to his hat as he recently became the first Pakistani batsman ever to complete a streak of 10,000 runs.
He is also the 13th cricketer in the history of the sport to achieve this milestone.
Let’s have a look at some of his achievements that have made the nation proud
Younis Khan was awarded with the pride of performance by the president of Pakistan back 2010.
Younis Khan made it to the list of 15 players who were nominated for ICC test player of the year award.
Not 10, or 20, but 32. Younis Khan’s 32 centuries in test cricket make him the highest century maker in Pakistan ever.
Younis Khan has a glorious record of scoring 23 centuries in away cricket for Pakistan. This is also the second highest record overall.
The only test cricketer to maintain a 60+ runs average in all four innings of test cricket.
