Profile

This much is at least certain that few Pakistani batsmen have been as elegant as Mohammad Yousuf and fewer still have been as prolific, as hungry to bat as long and bat as big.

Timeline
    • February 26, 1998
      Inauspicious debut
      • Makes his Test debut against South Africa in Durban, scoring 5 and 1 as Pakistan win by 29 runs. He is the fourth Christian to represent Pakistan.
    • March 28, 1998
      One-day debut is better
      • Makes his ODI debut against Zimbabwe in Harare, scoring an unbeaten 59 to help Pakistan chase 237 with four wickets left.
    • November 10, 1998
      Maiden ton in vain
      • Hits his maiden ODI hundred, 100 from 111 balls in his 10th ODI, against Australia, but the tourists chase down 316 with six wickets in hand, successfully equaling the then-highest run-chase in one-day international history.

Best Performances
      • West Indies have skittled half the Pakistan side for less than 40 runs, after they chose to bat, but Youhana leads the rescue act with a classy 115 in six hours, with 14 fours. His dismissal shortly before stumps brings the innings to an end and gives the persevering Walsh his 18th five-wicket innings return in Tests. He rates this, his third Test century, as best over his debut hundred and his 95 against Australia in Brisbane.
      • Pakistan make a flying start, but India hit back to leave them 103 for 4. Youhana leads the recovery with a canny 100, and displays the kind of maturity that would have made Javed Miandad proud. He paces his innings with precision, and never looks ruffled. His first fifty occupies 90 balls, his second just 23, with the last ball of the innings, from T Kumaran, sent over long-on for six. India lose and are eliminated from the Asia Cup.
      • Pakistan are 273 for 8 in response to England's 480, and are the only team that can lose the match from there. Youhana, though, gets company in Saqlain Mushtaq, and takes complete charge. Youhana resumes the fifth morning on 77 in Pakistan's 333 for 8, and departs after scoring a top-class 124 as the hosts hold on for a draw. Saqlain scores 32 out of a 121-run ninth-wicket stand.
