Younis Khan and the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) parted ways earlier today, just six months after the PCB named him as the men’s team’s batting coach.

While the PCB did not provide an explanation for Younis Khan’s departure, a report claims that the former Pakistan captain was dissatisfied with Mohammad Yousuf’s participation in the training camp. Yousuf had joined Pakistan’s training camp ahead of their home series against South Africa to help the team coordinate better.

Younis was dissatisfied with PCB’s decision to enlist Yousuf, according to a source who spoke to thenews.com.pk. Khan was also said to have qualms about the National High Performance Center’s coaches’ approach.

“Younis Khan and the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) went their separate ways, owing to serious differences,” the source stated.

Younis Khan has had many issues with the Pakistan Cricket Board in the past
This is not the first time Younis Khan has had problems with the Pakistan Cricket Board. He had some differences with the top officials during his playing days as well. In 2006, Khan suddenly resigned as the Pakistan cricket team’s captain.

After retirement, Younis went to Lahore for a Level III coaching course at the National Cricket Academy, but he did not attend because the organizers did not make prior arrangements for his accommodation. A few months later, the board offered him the role of the U-19 team’s coach, which Younis declined.

Quite a few fans were surprised when the PCB announced him as the new batting coach of the men’s team in 2020. It came to light that the PCB CEO Wasim Khan had personally asked Younis Khan to take up the role.

Younis was expected to be the team’s coach until the 2022 T20 World Cup. However, he has left his job even before the 2021 ICC T20 World Cup. Khan’s unexpected departure means the men’s team will likely play in the upcoming tours of England and the West Indies without a batting coach.

In the past, Younis Khan has had numerous disagreements with the Pakistan Cricket Board.
Younis Khan has had issues with the Pakistan Cricket Board before. During his playing days, he had some disagreements with the top officials. Khan abruptly quit as captain of the Pakistan cricket team in 2006.

Younis went to Lahore for a Level III coaching course at the National Cricket Academy after retiring, but he was unable to attend since the organizers had not made prior preparations for his lodging. A few months later, the board offered him the position of coach of the U-19 squad, which Younis turned down.

When the PCB appointed him as the new batting coach for the men’s squad in 2020, many fans were taken aback. It was revealed that Wasim Khan, the CEO of the PCB, had personally urged Younis Khan to take up the position.

Younis was slated to lead the team until the T20 World Cup in 2022. He did, however, resign from his position before the ICC T20 World Cup in 2021. Because of Khan’s abrupt resignation, the men’s team will likely be without a batting coach during their future travels to England and the West Indies.
