Karachi: Bees stung Pakistan captain Younis Khan outside his home leaving his face swollen in just a few minutes. The attack forced him to skip a pre-scheduled media discussion session in the city.
The freak accident took place early Thursday morning when the cricketer was taking his car out of the garage.
"My face is swollen. So I can't speak freely. Because of this incident I also reached late for a local match which I had to miss today," Younis said later.
Younis did, however, manage to show up for a Iftaar (fast breaking) party at the Karachi Press Club which was arranged in his honour.
"I should be okay in a couple of days. I don't think this incident will have any effect on my preparation for the coming Champions Trophy," he said.
