Two years ago, a 10-year old kid named Felix Anderson from New Zealand expressed his wish through a hand-written letter to learn cover drive and cut shot from his cricketing idol, Younis Khan.
The letter, after almost two years, finally made its way to Younis Khan, who has retired from international cricket and the legendary cricketer fulfiled his young fan’s wish.
Dear Felix, thank you for this sweet letter. I know this is almost two years old, but it only came across me now. I will surely make a small video to give you some tips as you requested 🙏🏻 pic.twitter.com/Mhaz5nTsfn

In a personal coaching video, Pakistan’s batting maestro taught young Felix how to play cover drive and cut shot properly.
As promised, here is the coaching tip manual on the cover drive and cut shot for the 12 year old Felix from New Zealand who wrote a letter to me. I hope you enjoy this, practice it & improve your game. All the best Felix. Hope to see you playing for your country one day 😊 pic.twitter.com/lnzP2yz9gT

“Keep watching the ball all the way and always practice in the right way,” advised Younis Khan to his young admirer from New Zealand.
