Younis Ahmed joined Glamorgan in 1984 after a long career with Surrey, and a much briefer one with Worcestershire.
The left-handed batsman spent three years with the Welsh county during which he showed his class and nous by posting nine centuries in all formats. He was awarded his Glamorgan cap in 1985 – a season that saw him share a record-breaking fourth wicket partnership of 306 runs with Javed Miandad against the Australians at Neath, as well as scoring 177 in the County Championship match against Middlesex at Sophia Gardens.
He was released by Glamorgan at the end of the 1986 season following the further emergence of younger, homegrown talent, yet the following winter Younis briefly re-appeared in Test cricket for Pakistan. He had made his Test debut in 1969/70, but was subsequently banned by the Pakistani authorities after visiting South Africa with DH Robins’ XI during 1973/74.
