Australia megastar Marnus Labuschagne said iconic Pakistan batsman Younis Khan was “willing to look ugly just to be effective”.
Having watched videos of Younis batting, he noticed that the 44-year-old “changed his technique a lot when he played in different conditions”.
Nonetheless, Younis finished his international career as the only Pakistan player to score 10,000 Test runs.
“Younis Khan is one that changed his technique a lot when he played in different conditions. He gets quite low and is willing to look ugly to just be effective,” Labuschagne told Cricbuzz.
In the recent series against Pakistan, he amassed 170 runs in the three Tests, which included a top score of 90, at an average of 34.
He followed that up with 88 runs in the three-match ODI series, which included a top score of 59, at an average of 29.33.
As for the one-off T20 International, he scored two runs.
