After failing in first three Tests of this crucial series, Younis Khan has recoiled back with the record-thrashing knock of 218 runs. This brilliant knock put Pakistan on driving seat and also came up with some good chances of winning this match and equaling the series.
The best part came in as Younis dedicated his double to to the Pakistani great Hanif Mohammad, who lost his life after prolonged illness.
Talking about his plan and expectations for the match, middle order batsman said,“As a senior player, there’s a lot of expections and I knew I had to do something. I worked hard with my coach Mickey Arthur and batting coach Grant Flower and it’s worked out well. I worked on my balance at the crease, stood a bit tall and stayed stable in the middle.”
During his talk he also urged Pakistani supporters to come in to support them on the Independence Day,“If we can win this tomorrow 14th August it would be very special for us all as it’s our independence day. There’s a lot of talk about me retiring but I don’t know when it is yet. I’ve always worked hard and kept myself fit. I urge all our supporters/ fans to come out tomorrow with the flags and support us to the last ball.”
