Younis honoured at Lord's

Record-setting former Pakistan Test batsman Younis Khan was accorded a warm reception held at Lord's the other day.

The simple yet impressive event took place in The Long Room at the game's headquarters.

Pakistan High Commissioner to the UK Syed Ibne Abbas, Wisden editor Lawrence Booth, members of Pakistan cricket squad, former Test cricketers and a large number of fans attended the ceremony.

Heaping praise on Younis, Pakistan team head coach Mickey Arthur said the thoroughly professional manner the batsman went about his business was fantastic.

The 39-year-old Younis, in his speech, thanked all for honouring him, and expressed the resolve that he would continue to serve cricket in Pakistan.

“It is a great honour for me to have played cricket for Pakistan and cross the 10,000-run milestone,” the right-handed batsman said, while thanking the people of Pakistan for their love and support they gave to Younis throughout his cricket career.
