|Controversies||• Younis resigned as the captain of the ODI team in October 2009 due to a parliamentary investigation into match-fixing that was alleged to have taken place during his reign. Despite being cleared in the investigation, Younis said, “Yes I have submitted my resignation because I am disgusted by these match-fixing allegations made against me and the team.”|
• In 2010, Younis Khan and his Pakistani counterpart, Mohammad Yusuf, were suspended from the Pakistan team of all formats for an indefinite time period. Although some reports cited “corruption charges” as the cause for the harsh action, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) cleared the air by stating the reason as “Breach of discipline within the team.”
• In 2015, Younis Khan blamed captain Misbah-Ul-Haq and the then Head Coach, Waqar Yunis, for dropping him from the ODI side. He further added that the two did nothing to motivate players and just went casually about every match.
• Younis Khan was fined 50% of the match fee, when he left a domestic match mid-way in April 2016. Furthermore, Younis had left the tournament after match referee Aziz Rehman summoned him for a disciplinary hearing. In his defense, Younis said that his image was being unnecessarily tarnished at this stage of his career.
