Pakistan's Jansher to return after five-year absence
KARACHI (Reuters) - Pakistan's former world champion Jansher Khan is coming out of retirement to play in a Professional Squash Association tournament in October.
The 38-year-old retired in 2002 due to a nagging knee problem after winning 99 professional titles, including the British Open six times and the World Open a record eight times.
Khan said he had been assured a wild card entry by the organisers of the PSA tournament, which is being held in London from Oct 11.
"The reason for my comeback is that I feel I am mentally and physically fit to play the international circuit for another three to four years," he said at a news conference on Thursday.
Jansher and countryman Jahangir Khan dominated the world squash circuit for nearly two decades, winning a total of 16 British Open and 14 World titles between them.
