Younis Khan

Pakistan cricketer Younis Khan raises his bat to the crowd after scoring a half-century (50 runs) during the Group A match in the World Cup Cricket tournament between Sri Lanka and Pakistan at The R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on February 26, 2011. Pakistan are 218 runs for the loss of four wickets in 42 overs after they won the toss and elected to bat first.
Full name Younis Khan

Born November 29, 1977, Mardan, North-West Frontier Province

Also known as Younus Khan

Batting style Right-hand bat

Bowling style Right-arm medium, Legbreak

Major teams Pakistan, Habib Bank Limited, Nottinghamshire, Peshawar Cricket Association, Rajasthan Royals, South Australia, Surrey, Warwickshire, Yorkshire.

Younis Khan is fearless, as befits his Pathan ancestry and will forever be remembered as the second Khan to bring home a world title for Pakistan: Younis was Pakistan's captain in the 2009 World Twenty20, leading a successful campaign with stark similarities to the one Imran Khan had led 17 years earlier. Younis retired from the format straight after, a graceful and dignified gesture from a complex but honest man.
