Younis Khan was appointed as Pakistan’s batting coach last year and his two-year contract was supposed to end at the conclusion of Men’s T20 World Cup in 2022. Nevertheless, the 43 year old decided to part ways with PCB (Pakistan Cricket Board) for reasons that are yet to be disclosed.

Still, rumors suggest that Khan wasn’t too happy with constant changes in the batting line and was of the opinion that decisions relating to selection were being taken while keeping the social media in mind.

Commenting on the development CEO, PCB i.e. Wasim Khan said, “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.”

Younis Khan has a history of being involved in similar incidents where he left things mid-way. He announced his decision to quit captaincy on multiple occasions after developing differences with his team mates. He also refused to takeover as Pakistan’s next skipper following the exit of Inzamam-ul-Haq in 2007 even though, he had been the country’s vice-captain for a while back then and despite the fact that PCB had invested ample time in him to takeover once Inzamam decides to call it a day.

Younis Khan’s resignation then is nothing to be astonished about and perhaps the time is right for PCB to stop entertaining former cricketers like him who lack patience and who are prone to making decisions in haste!
