Timing of Younis' ODI retirement disappoints Pakistan chief
 

ISLAMABAD: The timing of Younis Khan's retirement from one-day internationals has disappointed Pakistan Cricket Board chairman 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."
Shaharyar 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 week.
