The senior cricketer was shifted to a local hospital in Karachi due to dehydration and high temperature. His medical report shows low count of white blood cells, thus, doctors have advised him one week rest.
Younis, who debuted in the year 2000 under the captaincy of Saeed Anwar against Sri Lanka in Rawalpindi, has been a mainstay in Pakistan’s middle-order for over a decade. He found form late in the England series with a masterclass 218 in the final test that set up a great victory for Pakistan. He will also be part of Test squad against West Indies in Dubai.
Pakistan will play three Twenty20s (Pakistan currently 1-0 up), three one-day internationals and three Tests against West Indies in UAE.
The first of those Tests, at the Dubai Cricket Stadium between 13-17 October, will be played under lights using a PINK ball - the first time either country has done so.
Mohammad Yousuf went to visit his old friend at the hospital. He went on to tweet: Legend Get well soon! Your family & the whole nation miss you a lot, and look forward to your return #BleedGreenWe wish Younis Khan good health and a quick return back to action in UAE.
