Younis Khan to return home after father's death
The Pakistan batsman Younis Khan is returning home from Australia after learning of the death of his father.
Younis, 27, heard the news shortly after Pakistan's three-wicket victory over Australia in today's VB Series match at Perth.
A Cricket Australia spokesman told AFP that Younis was "shattered", and would leave Perth on the first available flight.
