Lahore, May 19 (ANI): Banned former Pakistan cricket captain Younis Khan has been signed by the English county team Surrey for the ongoing domestic season.
Younis, who is Surrey’s second overseas player after Australian all-rounder Andrew Symonds, would play for the county side in all tournaments until July.
Surrey’s Professional Cricket Manager Chris Adams hoped that bringing in Younis, who has an impressive average of 50.09 in 63 Tests, would have some positive effect on the team’s performance.
“I am confident that bringing a world class player such as Younus to Surrey will have a very positive effect on the side. As well as benefiting from the weight of runs we hope he will bring, we have a number of young batsman who will doubtless benefit greatly from being able to train and play alongside him,” The Daily Times quoted Adams, as saying.
Younis is expected to join the team in a week’s time. (ANI)
