Former Pakistan captain Younis Khan has abdicated his position as Pakistan’s batting coach. This came as a surprise decision and the Pakistan Cricket Board said this was agreed on “reluctantly but amicably” even though no reasons were specified for it.
Pakistan’s cricketing side is yet to tour the UK from the 25th of this month to July 20th to play three ODIs and three T20Is. Pakistan will tour West Indies from July 21 TO August 24 and will be playing five T20Is and two Tests against the Caribbeans.
PCB which made a statement on the issue said, “Pakistan men’s national cricket team will travel to the United Kingdom without a batting coach, while the decision to appoint Younis Khan’s replacement for the West Indies tour will be made in due course.”
According to sources, it is said that Khan was not satisfied with the way the Pakistan side is being prepared for the future. Younis was appointed as Pakistan’s batting coach last year in November based on a two-year contract until the 2022 ICC T20 World Cup.
Younis, who remains Pakistan’s top Test run-getter with over 10,000 runs, has had his fair share of problems with the cricket establishment earlier too.
