Younis Khan quits as Pakistan’s batting coach


Lahore: Younis Khan has parted his ways as batting coach of the Pakistan men’s team, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced today.

“Pakistan Cricket Board and Pakistan men’s national cricket team batting coach Younis Khan today mutually agreed to part ways,” the board said in a statement.

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.

PCB Chief Executive Wasim Khan: “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.”

Remember, Younis was appointed as batting coach last year in November on a two-year contract until the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022. He served as interim batting coach in England last year too before permanent appointment.
