Younus signed for Yorkshire in 2007 as the third asian cricketer to play for the Tykes following Sachin Tendulkar and Yuvraj Singh.
A stylish strokeplayer he forms a formidable middle-order partnership alongside Mohammad Yousuf in the Pakistan side although his partnership with the ball is less impressive following his leaking of 26 runs in an over against New Zealand.
In 2004 he hit a matchwinning 267 in the final Test against India and has cemented his place in the side ever since and has assumed the vice-captaincy.
He resigned from the captaincy in Inzamam's absence for the ICC Champions Trophy 2006 but reneiged and lead the side during an unsuccessful challenge.
He has happy memories of The Headingley Carnegie Stadium and is already on the honours board following his outstanding performance in the 2006 Test match in which England defeated Pakistan.
He scored 173 in the first innings, put on 363 for the third wicket with Yousuf (192), and was also top scorer with 41 in a disappointing second innings before Pakistan went down by 167 runs although he collected the man of the match award.
Yorkshire will be his second county after a spell at Nottinghamshire in 2005 and he is regarded as one of Pakistan's best fieldsmen.
