Younis Khan, the former captain of Pakistan, is one of the finest talents ever dished by the country. Surpassing legends like Inzamam-ul-Haq, Javed Miandad and Mohammad Yousuf in the red-ball cricket, the elegant batter mustered over 17000 International runs for the boys in green.
While his white-ball numbers remained open to debate, there is hardly a doubt about his Test cricket as Younis is the only Pakistani batsman to achieve the landmark of 10,000 Test runs. For this reason, he gets lauded all the time.
Recently, it was the turn of all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez to land accolades on Younis Khan. The senior pro is of the opinion that Younis was a thorough professional who remained focused on his cricket –a trait that helped him scale heights of success. The 39-year old cricketer also applauded the skills of the Test specialist and added that rubbing shoulders against such a cricketer helped him learn a lot about his trade.
