    "I don't think it's possible to have a more amazing and happier ending" : Younis Khan

    Younis Khan speaking to Bazid Khan after the third Test against West Indies:

    "It was a wonderful match, just like a Test match should be between two great nations. It was amazing and I would like to thank the Pakistan team for giving us such a send-off. I don't think it's possible for any cricketer to have a more amazing and happier ending."

    "My career has been how every cricketer's journey should be. I migrated to Karachi in early 80s and my father and family deserve credit for this decision. It wasn't easy for me to play cricket in Karachi as the area I live in is a bit outside the city so the daily travel, daily practice then from Under-14 for U19 and then Grade 2 cricket was a long process. If I measure that in days and hours, it would amount to thousand days and thousands of hours. The journey I started in the 80s from the Under-14s has led me here."

    "I wouldn't say I'm one of Pakistan's greatest cricketers but I tried my best to do something or to leave some legacy which my country remembers me by and I think I achieved that."

    "The credit goes to my parents, my family, my teachers, club-mates, associations, departments and the Pakistan team, I am here today because of all of them."

    "There is a lot planned for the future. I am a person who tries to make an impact no matter where I am. Even if I am at home, I try to do something on a daily basis that is worthwhile. I will try to do something and bring about some change where ever I go. I am not amongst those people who sits back and says nothing can be done."

    "From my side to the whole of Pakistan, congratulations for Pakistan's first ever Test series win in West Indies. I would like to gift my 10,000 runs to the whole of my country."

    People think Younis Khan is not humble and he has big Ego. Over the years his statements have been taken out of context on many ocassions while yes he has lost temper off the field (it's a fact). Still he lives in Steel Town while few weeks back a Super Star Cricket inaugurated his new luxurious home and had a grand party at his lavish new residence.


    No Younis You definitely are one of the greatest Cricketers produced by Pakistan and one of the greatest Living Pakistani Cricketer, Leader, Fighter IK says same about you.

    Yeah he has a very humble side to him as well, whether we get to see it or not.

    Nonetheless, he has retired now and retirement for an athlete is like death for a regular human being, in the sense that once it happens, you only talk about and remember the good times.

    Will miss you Younis. Stay blessed, Champion.

    No offense. But humbleness isnt going around and telling people that im humble. Beung humble is something that comes naturally to you and something you dont have to try to do.

    Younis in my opinion tries to be humble and sometimes he messes up big time due to short temper.

    Yup!

    And another knock which people rarely bring up but was up there in the list of my favourites would be that Pallekele knock. Stayed up during Ramadan, ignoring everything else just to watch that innings.

    I also lived in Hadeed all my childhood, and younis lives in Gulshan-e-hadeed and not steel town..
    He lived in a small 250 sq.yards home till last year.. he finaly changed his home to a 500 sq.yards new place..
    He is very humble... When he is playing in steel town anyone can easily meet him heck if you wanna meet him just go to his home ring the bell and he'll come outside to meet you..
    And he owns a small Photo studio and sometimes when he is free he is often seen sitting at the cashiers place..

    Best Pak test batsman I've seen. He was better than Inzi and yousuf IMO. Dunno about Miandad never saw him.

    Wish him all the best. While he didn't have the best series to bow out on, he did have a near double century in the previous Aus series, and still managed to get a half century in WI. But in the field he was excellent in WI series, that really stood out, so I hope he can be proud of that.

    He is a champion and always will be my greatest hero. Not everyone are as good a judge of character as you and I, Pakistani's tend to enjoy berating people for the sake of it or to look cool given their false sense of superficial logic. Khan retiring is like a close family member leaving me that's how much I admire and love him, but let his mental fortitude on and off the pitch inspire generations; that is his legacy, somewhere in a pakistani gali there would have been a kid who on that day witnessed a glorious career come to end, that beautiful smile draped in the star and crescent and says to himself "I want to be like Khan" this is real greatness and leaving a legacy behind.

    exactly a humble person or team man doesn't have to tell the world at every opportunity that he is humble and he is a team man
