Younis Khan called it a privilege to have been offered the opportunity.
“For me, there has never been a bigger honour and a better feeling than to represent my country and I feel privileged to have been again offered the opportunity to serve it for a challenging but exciting tour of England,” he said as quoted by pcb.com.pk
