Pakistani star batsman Younus Khan said that the Indian great Rahul Dravid played a huge role in his development as a top class Test batsman. The Pakistani said that if I’m a solid no.3 batsman for his country he owes it to the Indian Legend Rahul Dravid.

“The tips and advice I got from Dravid at the early stages of my career helped me develop into a top batsman who was comfortable at the number three position,” Younis said when asked about reports that the former Indian captain had helped him out in the past. 

“Younis said he spoke to Dravid on a tour and later on a couple of occasions about his batting technique and got some very good advice which helped him improve his batting skills”. 

“Dravid was a top class professional and one of the greats of the modern era and I learnt from him,” he said. The outspoken Pakistani senior also admitted for the first time that his decision to quit as captain in 2009 was a mistake. Younis said he had no immediate plans to retire but what was most important for him was how he carried his image. 

Younus Khan is regarded as one of the best batsman the Pakistani side has produced and his record speaks volumes of himself. The 37 year old has played 101 matches and has 8814 runs to his name, with a highly impressive average of 54.07
