After Misbah Ul Haq, another great player says goodbye to cricket.
Ex-Pakistani captain Younis Khan has announced his retirement from Test Cricket after playing series against West-Indies. He made this announcement at a press conference.
Talking to media, he said, “I am leaving my cricket career; I ask for forgiveness if I ever committed any mistake.”
“I tried my best to take Pakistan ahead in the field of sports. I always tried to make Pakistan proud with my performance,” he added.
Younis Khan had announced his retirement from ODI cricket on November 1, 2015, during the series against England. He also served with Peshawar Zalmi, PSL 2017 champion, as a mentor.
