A statement issued on Tuesday stated that Pakistani batting coach Younis Khan resigned from his position after a series of discussions with the Pakistan Cricket Committee (PCB).
According to the PCB statement, Younis was appointed to a two-year contract in November last year until the 2022 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.
Talking about the departure of Younis, PCB CEO Wasim Khan: “This is a sadly lost position and an expert with Younis Khan’s experience. After a series of discussions, both of us reluctantly but amicably agreed that it is now It’s time to move in a different direction.
“I want to thank Younis Khan for his short tenure as the batting coach of the Pakistan National Men’s Cricket Team, and hope that he can continue to assist by sharing his wealth of knowledge with emerging cricket players. PCB.”
Both PCB and Younis Khan agreed not to comment further on the reasons for the former captain’s departure.
The Pakistan National Men’s Cricket Team will travel to the UK without a batting coach, and the decision to appoint Younis Khan to succeed the West Indies Tour will be made in due course.
The Pakistan Men’s National Cricket Team will play three ODI and three T20Is tournaments in the UK from June 25th to July 20th, while the West Indies Tour will be held from July 21st to August 24th. The visiting team will participate in five T20Is and two tests.
