Wasim Khan’s vision inspired me to take up role in PCB: Mohammad Yousuf


Lahore: Former Pakistan captain Mohammad Yousuf has revealed that Chief Executive Wasim Khan’s vision inspired him to take up a role in the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

The newly-appointed batting coach at the National High-Performance Center (NHPC) said that new appointments are the sign that they are eager to do something.

“I’ve said previously that I’ve seen few interviews of Wasim Khan, there were plenty of positive things and he along with new setup of the board, are itching to do for Pakistan cricket,” Yousuf said.

“New appointments of all former cricketers with whom I have played are the sign of change and I also said multiple times about my availability. This time when they (PCB) inquired me so I decided to take up the role,” he added.

The 46-year-old doesn’t think that these new appointments are being made by the PCB to stay away from the criticism.

“In my opinion, qualification is the key while appointing someone and PCB did the same. We can not question the qualification of the likes of Waqar Younis or others,” he maintained.

He hailed the performances of batters in the recently concluded Test series against England and further added that the things are going towards betterment.

“Shan Masood had a good start on the tour while Mohammad Rizwan’s performance was also satisfactory, players are getting better. Azhar Ali and Asad Shafiq are seasoned batsmen and have performed in different conditions,” he concluded.
