Star batsman and former captain Younis Khan has announced retirement from international cricket after upcoming Test series against West Indies.
Addressing a press-conference in Karachi on Saturday, Younis Khan said he tried to promote the soft image of Pakistan through cricket.
Younis, who has captained Pakistan in all three formats and led them to their only World Twenty20 title in England in 2009, needs only 23 runs to reach 10,000 Test runs.
Younis has so far scored 34 Test centuries in 115 matches-the most by any Pakistani batsman -- and is set to become first Pakistani and 13th batsman in the world to score 10,000 or more runs.
Younis hit a hundred in his first Test against Sri Lanka in Rawalpindi in 2000, which started a glorious career during which he also scored a double hundred in Pakistan's series-levelling win against India at Bangalore in 2005.
