Pakistan’s T20I captain Babar Azam has named legendary duo Younis Khan and Mohammad Yousuf among his favorite batsmen to watch. As part of a new trend introduced by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) where fans and cricketers alike have been asked to choose their favorite pairings, Babar picked Younis and Yousuf.
“Pakistan has produced many great players and my favorite among them are Younis Khan and Mohammad Yousaf. This generation of cricketers have learned a lot from Yousaf bhai’s skill and class and Younis bhai’s ‘never give up’ mindset and we will continue to learn from them” - Babar said in a video uploaded by the PCB’s official Twitter account.
There is no denying Yousuf and Younis’ unparalleled class and their batting in tandem was clearly poetry in motion. The two remain Pakistan’s second-most prolific Test pair, having accumulated 3137 runs at an average of 78.42 in partnerships together.
