Karachi, Oct 6: Veteran Test batsman Younis Khan has been ruled out from the first Test against the West Indies, DawnNews reported on Thursday.

Younis, who is recovering from dengue virus, told Inzamam-ul-Haq that he is yet to regain full fitness, a Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) official said.

The official further said that Younis has asked for a window of 8-10 days before he can take on the field.

Pakistan are scheduled to take on the Windies in the three-Test match series, starting October 13.
