Pakistan captain Younis Khan on Sunday announced his retirement from Twenty20 Internationals after guiding the team to the World Cup triumph in this format.

"This is my last Twenty20 game, I am retiring from T20 internationals," Younis told reporters after Pakistan beat Sri Lanka to win the Twenty20 World Cup at Lord's.

"I am 34 and I am old for this kind of cricket," he said.

Younis have played 22 Twenty20 Internationals, amassing 432 runs at an average of 25.41 with his highest score being 51.

Younis had earlier commented that Twenty20 format was meant for fun and he would not be too disappointed even if the team lost the World Cup.
