KARACHI: A large crowd gathered at the Jinnah International Airport on Monday to welcome recently-retired Younis Khan as he touched down in Karachi after his final Test against the West Indies.
Thanking the gathered crowd, Younis said he felt overwhelmed with the love he had received.
“I would like to congratulate Pakistan for all the achievements I have in cricket: they are wins for the nation and not just myself. I am grateful for the welcome I have received,” Younis said while taking to the media.
“I have a number of offers on the table and I will choose the option that is the best, for myself and for Pakistan,” he said while talking about his future plans.
Laughing off the idea of a foray into politics, the batsman said: “There are already great politicians in the country, I would like to continue serving the nation in my own way.”
Younis Khan cemented his place in Pakistan’s cricket history as an iconic batsman with unparalleled success. He returns to Pakistan on the back of a historic win against the West Indies, as the jinx of Pakistan never winning a Test series in the Caribbean was lifted. Agencies
