M.Yousuf announces retirement

KARACHI: Pakistan’s world record holder batsman Mohammad Yousuf Monday said he has decided to retire in protest over an indefinite ban imposed on him by country’s cricket board.

The 35-year-old Yousuf, who holds the world record for most runs in a calendar year with 1,788 made in 2006, was banned by an inquiry committee of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) two weeks ago.

Yousuf led Pakistan on their twin tours of New Zealand and Australia between November and February after regular captain Younus Khan withdrew over a lack of form.
