According to a statement released by the cricket board on Tuesday, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and men’s national cricket team batting coach Younis Khan have amicably agreed to part ways.
Younus Khan was hired in November of last year on a two-year contract that runs till the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in 2022. Wasim Khan, the PCB’s Chief Executive, said it was unfortunate to lose an expert of Younis’ stature and experience.
“After a series of discussions, we both regrettably but jointly and cordially concluded that it was time to go our own ways.”
Wasim khan added, “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.”
