The Pakistan batsman Younis Khan is returning home from Australia after learning of the death of his father.

Younis, 27, heard the news shortly after Pakistan's three-wicket victory over Australia in today's VB Series match at Perth.

A Cricket Australia spokesman told AFP that Younis was "shattered", and would leave Perth on the first available flight.
