Legendary Pakistan batsman Younis Khan recently suffered a personal tragedy as his dear mother passed away due to a protracted illness in a private hospital in Karachi. Younis, Pakistan’s highest run-scorer in Test cricket, was grief stricken by the demise of his beloved parent.
It was reported that the funeral and the last rites of the deceased would be performed in Younis’ hometown in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Shocked by the sudden death of his mother, several current and former Pakistan cricketers shared condolences with Younis on Twitter.
Players such as captain Sarfaraz Ahmed, speedster Shoaib Akhtar, former spin wizard Saeed Ajmal, ex-skipper Misbah-ul-Haq and right-arm pacer Hasan Ali among others were all heartbroken by Younis’ huge loss.
