Younis Khan has stepped down from the men’s batting coach position, it emerges on Tuesday.

Pakistan Cricket team will be without a batting coach in England. Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) says both “mutually and amicably but reluctantly agreed to part ways.”

Younis was appointed batting coach last year in November on a two-year contract until the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022.

PCB Chief Executive Wasim Khan commenting on the development, said that it was sad to lose an expert of Younis’ stature and experience.

“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 for his contributions during his short stint as the 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,” he said.

“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,” it added.
