Younis to play for Warwickshire

Pakistan cricketer Younis Khan is set to join English county side Warwickshire on a two-year deal.

The 32-year-old returns to England following previous spells with Nottinghamshire, Yorkshire and Surrey.

Younis Khan has been a key player for Pakistan over the years before being dropped from the side following the disastrous tour of Australia earlier this year. Younis has a total of 63 Test caps at an average of 50.09 and 202 ODI's at an average of 32.57.

"Everyone at Warwickshire is delighted that we have been able to complete the signing of Younis from the start of the 2011 season," said Warwickshire director of cricket Ashley Giles.

"He is a great addition to the Bears' squad and will add tremendous depth to our batting line-up."

Younis added: "I am really looking forward to playing at Warwickshire next year and maintaining their high standards.

"Warwickshire have a fantastic team with Ian Bell and Jonathan Trott, and a great coach in Ashley Giles, so with the new ground development as well it's all very exciting."
