KARACHI: Encouraging women’s participation in sports, former captain of Pakistan cricket team Younis Khan has said that parents should encourage their daughters to participate in sports.

“We talk about women cricket team, I think it is very much up to parents who should encourage daughters to participate in sports,” Younis said, when he was asked about women cricketers at a ceremony in Karachi.

Younis also revealed that his daughter is interested in cricket. “My daughter loves cricket and she may start playing soon,” said the former captain.

The highest run getter, however, said that he would love to see his son playing squash instead.

“I want my son Owais Khan to play squash and win tournaments for Pakistan like Jahangir Khan,” Younis said.
