Sydney:

Pakistan Test batsman Younus Khan will make his debut for Australian state side South Australia in their Sheffield Shield match against New South Wales starting in Adelaide on Friday, team officials said.

Younus arrived last week to join South Australia after completing international commitments with the Pakistan team in Canada.

SA captain Graham Manou said he expected Younus to provide the "x factor" for his team this southern summer after a series of dismal performances by the state team in recent years.

South Australia began the new season with a one-day loss to Victoria last week followed by a draw in the Shield match against Victoria.

Younus, 30, has scored 4,816 runs in 58 Tests at 49.14 with 15 centuries and played 175 one-day internationals for Pakistan since 2000.
