Younis Khan’s performance as a batting coach was appreciated by all quarters during the English tour. The former skipper however, is not part of Pakistan’s supporting staff during the upcoming series against Zimbabwe. Nevertheless, media reports suggest that PCB is likely to offer the 42 year old a permanent position as a batting coach from the New Zealand tour on wards.

Speculations also suggest that Misbah is no longer in the good books of those who matter in PCB. Hence, a bad tour to New Zealand is likely to see the end of his tenure. Younis’ possible appointment then is likely to be a bad news for the current head coach. Inducting Younis i.e. if it happens should clearly explain that PCB is preparing a replacement for the out of favor Misbah.

Test captain, Azhar Ali is likely to be shown the door even before the New Zealand tour. The meeting with Prime Minister then is also likely to put Mohd. Hafeez’s career in jeopardy.

Babar Azam’s performance as a skipper both during the upcoming series against Zimbabwe and during the tour to New Zealand is also likely to determine his future as a team leader.

The season of changes so, seems to have arrived at PCB and is likely to end following Pakistan’s tour to the Kiwi land.
