Former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar, paying rich tribute to outgoing Younis Khan, said that the veteran batsman should be renamed as Unique Khan for his selflessness and honesty towards country’s cricket.
“To me Younis Khan should be renamed ‘Unique’ Khan for his selflessness & honesty towards Pakistan cricket. Take a bow brother, You are a champ,” Akhtar wrote on Twitter.
The Rawalpindi Express also maintained that Younis’s retirement should not be seen as ‘the end’, adding that he should be given a role in the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
“Younis Khan’s retirement should not be seen as ‘The End’ but a start. Let’s give him a role in the PCB and benefit from the treasure of his experience. Younis Khan was the broadest bat to play for Pakistan, a bat that didn’t have the edges. Let’s retire jersey no 75 as a respect to him,” he added.
The king of spin Wasim Akram, while paying tribute to Younis, said: “He is still fit but there is always a time when you have to decide about leaving.”
The legendary pacer further said that the 40-year-old has set many records which are a testimony of his greatness.
