Younis: I want to score 10000 runs in Test cricket
Pakistan's veteran batsman Younis Khan has no plans to retire from international cricket any time soon, saying he wants to score 10000 runs in Test cricket.
With Australia's Michael Clarke and Sri Lanka's Kumar Sangakkara both leaving walking away from international cricket in recent weeks, the 37 year-old Younis was questioned about his own future.
Younis, who is Pakistan's leading run-scorer in Tests with 8814, has maintained that he has not thought about quitting as he still wants to go with the national side on the tour to England next year.
A right-handed batsman, Younis said: "It would be a remarkable achievement to score 10,000 Tests runs for Pakistan and I am confident I can manage it if I retain my hunger and passion for playing cricket.
"I want to enhance my runs tally against quality bowlers. I am looking forward to the tour to England as we haven't played a Test there since 2010.
"I have faced ups and downs in my career but always come back because of the discipline and self-belief installed in me by my parents and family.
"I have learnt to cope with different situations and personal tragedies and continue to focus on cricket."
