Younis has a point to prove

Karachi: Younis Khan is keen to leave an imprint in ODIs leading up to the World Cup 2015 in Australia and New Zealand.

Younis, who was recalled to the one-day squad after being ignored for nearly one year, said: “Whatever format you play in, it is important to try to cash in on the opportunities you get. For me, playing for Pakistan is the most important thing and whenever I get the chance to play in the ODIs I want to leave my mark,” he said.

The senior batsman whose ODI record has not matched his Test run scoring feats said he loved playing in any format.

“I don’t want to be remembered as someone who was good in one formatů I want to make these coming ODIs memorable for my team and my country. I see these coming ODI matches as very important. I would first of all like to get to the 50 half centuries mark,” Younis said.

Younis noted that unless he proved himself in the ODIs he couldn’t be sure about finding a place in the World Cup squad.

“A lot of people have shown a lot of faith in me and I am grateful for the support shown by the people as well. I will try not to let them down,” stated Younis whose last ODI appearance was in March last year in South Africa.
