Pakistan batsman Younis Khan announced his retirement from ODI career after the first match against England at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. During his era, Younis Khan of 37 years old played 264 matches in an ODI career that spanned 15 years. With 7240 runs, Younis is currently sixth on the list of the highest scorer for Pakistan in One Day International. Earlier this month, he overtook Javed Miandad’s record of 8832 runs and become Pakistan’s highest run-scorer in Tests. This record remains for 22 years in Javed Miandad’s account.
Overall, Younis scored seven centuries and 48 half-centuries at an average of 31.34, but had been on the fringes of the limited-overs side in recent months; he managed just one century since 2008, against New Zealand last December. His records in One Day International were less impressive.
