Pakistan's experienced middle-order batsman Younis Khan has no plans to quit limited-overs cricket after the World Cup and said that as long as he stays fit he would continue to be available to play both one-day internationals and test matches. The 37-year-old Khan is one of Pakistan's fittest players and forced his way back into the World Cup squad after his scintillating batting form in the test series against Australia and New Zealand late last year. He made three centuries in four innings against Australia and another against New Zealand to make the selectors rethink his exclusion from the limited-overs team. "How come you know that it's my last World Cup?" asked Khan when queried about whether this will be his last major ODI tournament. "Whenever I feel my body is not allowing me to play, only then I will retire." Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq and flamboyant all-rounder Shahid Afridi have already announced plans to retire from ODIs after the tournament in Australia and New Zealand ends in March.
