Younus Khan (born 29 November 1977) is a Pakistani cricketer and former captain of the Pakistan national cricket team. Younus' name is often spelled Younis Khan, but he has been quoted as saying, "My name is Younus Khan. I tell people that everywhere, but they don’t listen." He is only the third Pakistani player to score 300 or more runs in an innings. Like Imran Khan, he is most remembered his leadership letting Pakistan win 2009 ICC World Twenty20.
On 10 March 2010, Younus, along with another player, Mohammad Yousuf were axed by the Pakistan Cricket Board from playing for Pakistan in any format for an indefinite period, following an inquiry report which suggested that both players were involved in breaches of discipline by inciting divisions within the team. The ban was overturned three months later. Presently Younus is a key member in the ODI and Test match side, by February 2012 Younus reached his 20th test match century against England.
