LAHORE: (Web Desk) Pakistan Cricket team’s batting coach Younis Khan has left the team with what media reported the consent of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
A statement released by the PCB says men’s national cricket team’s batting coach Younis Khan and the cricket board mutually agreed to part ways.
Younis was appointed last year in November on a two-year contract until the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022.
PCB Chief Executive Wasim Khan syas: “It is sad to lose an expert of the stature and experience of Younis Khan. Following a series of discussions, we both have reluctantly but mutually and amicably agreed that it was time to move in different directions.
“I want to thank Younis Khan for his contributions during his short stint as the Pakistan men’s national cricket team’s batting coach and hope he will remain available to assist the PCB by sharing his vast knowledge with the emerging cricketers.”
Both PCB and Younis Khan have agreed not to make any further comment on the reasons for the former captain’s departure.
People with keen eye on Pakistan cricket say Younis Khan has always been difficult to handle. Even in the team he had problems with the co-players. “Younis Khan wants protocol and has issues with co-workers on petty matter,” said a senior sports analyst while talking to Newsmakers.
