From The Heart: Younis Khan Replies to 10 Year Old Fan’s Letter from New Zealand

An adoring fan from Auckland has written a letter to the former Pakistani captain and prompted a heartwarming response from him, one which he will never forget.

Felix Anderson, who is only 10 years of age, mailed a handwritten letter to Younis Khan, asking him to impart his wisdom since his technique was ‘beautiful to watch.’

“Dear Mr Khan, my name is Felix. I’m 10-years-old and I live in New Zealand,” he began.

He continued and wrote, “I’m writing to you because you are one of my biggest heroes. Your technique is beautiful to watch.”

“Your 318 against Sri Lanka was incredible to watch, it showed me how much I want to be a professional cricketer and bat 3rd.”

In the note, Felix asked Younis for tips and “some advice on the cut shot or cover drive.”

The former captain, who has the most number of runs and centuries for a Pakistani in Test history has responded to Felix, two years after the note was sent.
