Pakistan batsman Younis Khan is all set to end his glorious career after Pakistan play their third and final game of the three-match Test series against West Indies. Younis began his career with a scintillating hundred against Sri Lanka in 2000.

Batting first, Pakistan were bundled out for a score of 182 runs in the first innings and in reply, Aravinda de Silva’s knock of 112 anchored Sri Lanka to a total of 353 runs to give them a healthy lead.

But it was Younis Khan’s hundred in his second Test innings that provided Pakistan with some resistance. He scored 107 before getting out to Muralitharan. Pakistan scored 390 runs handing Sri Lanka a target of 220 runs. Sri Lanka chased down the target by 2 wickets to lead three-match series 1-0.

Here we look at the players who were in the playing XI when the right-handed marked his arrival on the biggest stage and what are they doing now.
