Karachi: He stole the limelight with his batting prowess in the just-concluded Test series win over Australia, but senior Pakistan batsman Younis Khan has said that he thought about quitting cricket after being dropped unceremoniously from the ODI squad last month.
"Yes the thought of retirement crossed my mind. I was so disappointed and upset at being dropped for the ODI series. But my family and friends told me you must not give up and try to do something for the country," Younis said.
The former skipper, who left an undeniable mark in Pakistan's 2-0 victory over Australia in the Test series that concluded on Monday, said that his anger stemmed from the fact that he was sidelined by the selectors after just one match.
