Younis wishes good form had come in Pak

Younis Khan on Monday wished his run of big scores had come in Pakistan where international cricket is suspended due to terrorism. Pakistan have been forced to play international cricket on the neutral venues of United Arab Emirates since terrorist attacks on the Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore in 2009. And Younis missed his home crowds during his sequence of big scores, notching a century in each innings in the first Test against Australia in Dubai and then racking up 213 in the second in Abu Dhabi. He followed this with an unbeaten 100 in Pakistan’s mammoth 566/3 declared on the second day of the first Test against New Zealand.

‘It would have been fantastic had all this happened in Pakistan before my own people. It’s always a good feeling playing before your home crowd as I did in 2004 against India, then in the next two years so I wish it could happen again in Pakistan before my own people,’ said an emotional Younis. He hoped teams like India, Australia and England come to Pakistan again. ‘I wish teams like India, Australia come to Pakistan, our people are able to watch the game again and we are doing efforts to bring the game back to Pakistan and I am sure it will happen,’ said Younis.
