Pakistan batsman Younus Khan will miss the final two One-Day Internationals in Sri Lanka following a family bereavement.

Younus is already on his way home to Pakistan to be with his family following the death of his nephew.

"I am deeply saddened at the passing away of your nephew," Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Shaharyar Khan said in a message to Younus.

"Please accept my condolences, and convey these to your family as well".

A PCB spokesman added: "The Board’s upper tier management as well as entire staff prays to the Almighty to bestow the departed soul with eternal peace and grant the family the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss."

Pakistan won the opening match in Hambantota by four wickets and the remaining matches take place on Tuesday (26th August) and Saturday (30th August).

The vastly experienced Younus, 36, has played 91 Tests, 254 ODIs and 25 Twenty20 Internationals, leading Pakistan to success at the 2009 ICC World Twenty20 in England.
