Younis Khan’s sudden retirement from ODI cricket simply shocked everyone, as the timing of the retirement was pretty questionable. Khan retired from ODI’s after the first ODI against England but informed the PCB at the very last moment. Pakistan’s coach Waqar Younis recently admitted that Khan’s call to hang up his boots from ODI’s wasn’t correct. The Pakistani coach said that the middle order batsman should have at least waited till the end of the series.

“Reality demanded that he should have completed the series. But that is the way he thinks and he is, I am very proud of the way he played the game,” Waqar said. “He will continue to play Test cricket and I am hopeful that he will complete 10,000 Test runs but it was an unfortunate way to retire and the decision was sudden and that was a big shock for us.”

 

 

 

However, Waqar chose to be safe and did not elaborate about Khan’s decision. Rather, he spoke about the second ODI, in which England fought back to level the series.

“England bounced back and bounced back well, we probably were not thinking that they are going to play that well so we have to play out of our skins to make it 2-1,” Waqar said. “Obviously we were expecting a fightback from England but we also played poor cricket in that game. We were not up to the mark in batting and at no time we were in the game and we must make sure it doesn’t happen next time.”
