    Mohammad Yousuf or Younis (in tests)

    Yousuf was clearly far far better in Odi's but who do you think has been the superior player in tests.

    Can someone explain to me the meanings of the names of Pakistan and other more middle eastern names? Seems to be a lot of "Khans", a lot of "Mohammeds" etc. And are there surnames and given names as such?

    All Pushtoons are Khan's, which is a title. Khan is originally a Turkic word and it means lord. So Shahid Khan Afridi is a Pushtoon from the Afridi tribe and Imran Khan Niazi is a Pushtoon from the Niazi tribe. Same for Younus (don't know his surname).

    A lot of Muslim countries like Pakistan, etc go by tradition to use Arabic names such as Mohammad or Younus, Yousuf, etc.

    you didn't answer the question ****
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Youhana looks better while batting but has a few technical flaws. Younis is ungainly at times but gets the job done.

    Actually, scratch all that..they're two aspects of the same coin, much like those two ****s Jayawardene and Sangakkara.

    I think Yousuf was the better batsmen when at the top of his game - he had those insane couple of years when he was impossible to bowl to. Over the whole of their careers, it's fairly even.

    If picking an all-time Pakistan side, I take Younis Khan as he can bat at number 3, which is something none of the other top Pakistanis seemed able to do.

    I'd go for Younis purely for flexibility both at the crease and in the field, mind, they have both worked hard and deserve whatever they have achieved.
