Veteran Pakistan batsman Younis Khan said it was shocking to him not to be included in the list of 16 players for the upcoming five match series against South Africa in UAE.
Younis who had hoped to get his name in the shorter version of game was unhappy with the Pakistan Cricket Board’s decision on monday.
The 35 years old has played 253 ODIs and is one of the most experienced player in Pakistan team. He was also not in the Pakistan ODI team during series against Zimbabwe last month.
“I am surprised and it’s shocking news for me as I am not being included in the ODI team,” Younis said.
He further described, “I want to play till I get fit. I fell more it now than I used to be fit when I was 23 or 24 years.”
“I have not thought of retiring from ODI till now. I will be waiting for the moment to retire. And when I retire I will leave with a bang,” said Younis.
