Younus: High standards
Pakistan batsman Younus Khan is set to join Warwickshire next season on a two-year contract.
The deal, which is subject to a medical and a work permit application, will see the 32-year-old continue a county career which has already brought spells with Nottinghamshire, Yorkshire and Surrey.
Younus has 63 Test caps, averaging 50.09, while he has an average of 32.57 in 202 one-day internationals.
"Everyone at Warwickshire is delighted that we have been able to complete the signing of Younus from the start of the 2011 season," said Warwickshire director of cricket Ashley Giles.
"He is a great addition to the Bears' squad and will add tremendous depth to our batting line-up."
Younus added: "I am really looking forward to playing at Warwickshire next year and maintaining their high standards.
"Warwickshire have a fantastic team with Ian Bell and Jonathan Trott, and a great coach in Ashley Giles, so with the new ground development as well it's all very exciting."
