Islamabad - The timing of Younis Khan's retirement from one-day
internationals has disappointed Pakistan Cricket Board chairperson Shaharyar Khan.
He says middle-order batsman Younis Khan should
have quit after the four-match series against England, instead of after
the first match on Wednesday.
Younis, picked for his first ODIs
since the Cricket World Cup in March, was determined to quit on his own
terms and announced his retirement just before the match in Abu Dhabi,
United Arab Emirates. He scored 9 to finish with 7,249 runs from 265
matches since 2000.
Shaharyar Khan says Younis Khan "should have
taken us in confidence, but he didn't, and that's why it is
disappointing. He could have quit after the series."
Khan said all the differences over Younis' selection in the
limited-overs squad were sorted out when chief selector Haroon Rashid
met with coach Waqar Younis and ODI captain Azhar Ali in Sharjah last
