What's in a name

"My name is Younus Khan. I tell people that everywhere, but they don’t listen."

So said Pakistani batsman Younus, or to most people Younis, before he confirmed to Yorkshire by text message that this was how he would like to be written. Presumably this was ammended before the Tykes printed their squad shirts for the season, so ending a minor 'King of Spain' saga.

And the club may yet have to print more shirts for the club shop. A few who were present at the Rose Bowl last week for the Hampshire v Yorkshire game believe Younus's knock was the best they had seen.
