Younis Khan’s family went through some very sad times. In 2005 and 2006, they faced a lot of losses. First, his father passed away when he was in Australia for a cricket tour.

Then, during England’s tour to Pakistan, his older brother Mohammed Sharif Khan, who taught Younis how to play cricket, died in a car accident in Ukraine. This was really sad because he was just 41 years old.

Later, another brother, Farman Ali Khan, also died in a car accident in Germany in December 2006. He was only 39.

Younis also had a father figure in his life, Bob Woolmer, who was like a second dad to him. But in 2007, after Pakistan’s exit from the World Cup, Bob passed away. Younis was very affected by this loss.
