9. Younis Khan, Pakistan
Younis Khan is one Pakistani who although doesn’t invoke great passion and aggression from the fans unlike most players from his country; he is still one of the most respected cricketing hero in the country. He may not be Hanif Mohammad-ish in his defence; He may not be Zaheer Abbas when it comes to stroke making;
He may not even be lazily elegant like Inzamam-Ul-Haq, still Younis has scraped run after run each time he went out. The result- He is the highest run scorer for Pakistan in test cricket. With the 30s being pretty kind on him, his recent double hundred against England made it clear the joy is not about to end. With close to 2,000 runs in the last two years plus an average of 65 during this period, Younis comes in at number 9 on our list.
