Former Skipper Rashid Latif wants the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to utilize the services of batting coach Younis Khan for a longer-term, as to benefit from his expertise in the game.
‘PCB should make use of Younis’s experience for a long period. He wants to transfer his experience to youngsters and guide them. The Under-13, u16, u19, Pakistan A and Pakistan team can benefit from him. PCB has got the opportunity in the likes of Younis and must make the most of it,’ cricketpakistan.com.pk quoted him as saying.
Rashid said Younis was a man of the field as he wants to transfer his knowledge to the players. ‘Younis will get wasted if he is not on the field. The same quality was in batting legend Javed Miandad who had coached Inzamam-ul-Haq, Muhammad Yousaf, Basit Ali, Younis etc. Younis must have got these qualities from him,’ he said.
The 51-year-old said Younis’s partnership with Pakistan’s chief selector-cum-head coach, Misbah ul Haq, could prove to be fruitful for Pakistan.
‘Misbah is very flexible in his approach and keeps an open mind. Misbah and Younis go a long way back. If their partnership as coach is similar to their partnership as players, it will be very beneficial for Pakistan,’ he said.—APP
