Younis retires from T20 cricket

London: Younis Khan, who lead Pakistan to historic T20 victory at Lords on Sunday, announced his retirement from T20 internationals after the world cup finals.

"This is my last Twenty20 game (for Pakistan), so I am retiring from T20 internationals," Younis said after Pakistan beat Sri Lanka by eight wickets.

"I am now 34, I am old for this kind of cricket. The good thing is we have a couple of good youngsters like Shahzaib (Hasan) and Ahmad Shahzad."

Younis Khan has used Pakistan's World Twenty20 triumph to appeal to cricket's other leading nations to consider playing in his country again following the recent troubles. He urged world cricket to reconsider their decision and encourage the next generation of cricketers in their country.
